Not One But Two Three Days - Four Nights Food Photography Workshops in Charleston, South Carolina!

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

I have to say, so far the year has kicked in high gear right from the start with great projects after great projects. Work wise, the calendar looks like a well packed tin of sardines. Fun wise, I am making sure there are plenty of fun projects to sustain creativity and inspiration throughout the year. That means teaching workshops...and more workshops...!

When Clare and I put together our May workshop a couple of month ago, we were overwhelmed by the positive response from readers who asked us to add more dates. We have been working hard to get our schedules together and we are thrilled to say that we are doing not one but TWO more workshops together in November 2012. And each is a little different than the other. Read along...you will see...

Workshop November 1st - 5th

Nothing is more soothing than the beach in November. It is the perfect foil to let your mind run wild and allow your creative self to take over.

Imagine spending 3 days and 4 nights in a gorgeous house located across the street from the beach in The Isle of Palms, enjoying great food and wine, learning all about food photography and styling from Clare and Helene, and taking lots and lots of photos. Over the course of the workshop, you will learn about exposure, utilizing natural light, composition, choosing props, camera angle, styling, and how to tell a story through photographs.

We will venture at the farmers market and local artisans to procure the best ingredients for our shoot. We'll take a little play/work time to the beach and chill, relax and learn at the same time. We are also thrilled to have a couple of guest speakers join us for an afternoon, such as an art director and magazine editor who will share the ins and outs of their specific field, their experiences and much more.

When: Thursday, November 1st through Monday, November 5th, 2012

Fee: $1500 (includes accommodations for 4 nights, all meals, transportation to/from Charleston International airport and on all field trips, and 3 days workshop instruction from Clare and Helene. Please note that bedrooms are shared. See house plans here. )

BUT...as I mentioned above, we have made plans for a second workshop in November, also in Charleston!
This one is slightly different and all the same fun and geared towards giving you the tools you need to progress on your photo journey.

Workshop November 8th-12th

Clare and I asked my dear friend Tami Hardeman who is a professional food stylist in Atlanta, GA to come join us as an instructor. So instead of two passionate food photography gals, you get three...!

We are thrilled to add her skills and expertise to the workshop but also her sassy and creative personality.

We will be together for 3 days and 4 nights in a gorgeous house located across the street from the beach in The Isle of Palms, learning all about food photography and styling from Clare and Helene and Tami. Over the course of the workshop, you will learn about utilizing natural light, composition, tips and techniques of food styling, and how to tell a story through photographs.

When: Thursday, November 8th through Monday, November 12th, 2012

Fee: $1850 (includes accommodations for 4 nights, all meals, transportation to/from Charleston International airport and on all field trips, and 3 days workshop instruction from Clare and Helene and Tami. Please note that bedrooms are shared. See house plans here. )

We are really happy to be able to offer you two weekends of food, photography and styling in a calming and inspiring environment. Looking forward to it!

Sounds fantastic! Wish I could make it this time :-(

These both look amazing. I used to live in Myrtle Beach and I know that this time of year is glorious, empty, and like you "have the beach to yourself", sans tourists. And that could be so inspirational.

You, Tami, Clare...oh the fun and the learning that will happen for those attending!

I would have loved to attended this workshop! Unfortunately with a husband in military and house full of kids it isn't feasible for me. I really need some training in regards to photographing my cooking results. Photoshop and camera settings kick my butt, but I'm slowing picking it up. Thanks for the gorgeous foods and great tasting recipes.

I would love to have taken advantage of this trip! Unfortunately with a military husband and a houseful of kids it gets kind of tough. I'm desperately in need of some photoshop and photography training.

Shawn said...

I missed the last one, really hoping I can make it to this November one. Is there a military discount by any chance?

Helene said...

Shawn: there are no military discounts. Unfortunately, all the workshops this year are full. November included. Sorry! Stay tuned for our 2013 calendar though!

Christina said...

Is there a wait list for the Charleston workshops? I would love to attend!

Helene said...

Christina: yes, there is. Just send an email/comment via the ticketing site (click on the registration link) and we will add you to the waiting list. Thanks!
