Food Styling, Photography & Cooking Workshop In Charleston SC, May 16th-20th 2016

Workshop May 2

Super happy to announce that I will be teaming up with Chef John Ondo for a food styling, photography & cooking workshop in Charleston SC, in a beautiful beach home located on the Isle of Palms, May 16th-20th 2016. The 3 day workshop will be geared toward food, prop styling, photography, cooking demos and lots of hands on practice.

I will focus on my photo, composition and styling processes, from basics natural light manipulations to more advanced ones. Cooking sessions with Chef Ondo will punctuate the mornings and afternoons where he will share his love of Mediterranean cuisine and creativity cooking with locally sourced ingredients.

Together, we will guide you to create an edible narrative with your photos, and share current food styling and propping trends, etc… Nothing is off limits with questions, from how to pick ingredients, how to cook them, how to manage your cooking/photo time efficiently, knowing about photography for blogging or professional work, cooking for photography, photo as a hobby or how to get started in the business.

All this right by the ocean.



The workshop will start by a casual meet & greet at the beach home, followed by dinner prepared by Chef Ondo. Three days of photography and cooking follow.

Attendees will have a morning free to wander about Charleston get some personal work done or just chill. A trip to the docks to get fresh fish and a visit to a favorite antique store are also on the itinerary.

3 days of photography, composition, food styling and cooking sessions

Helene, I notice you have planned back-to-back workshops in Charleston and Gordes. What if any difference is there between the two? I happen to be traveling to Provence about the same time so I'm wondering which is program would be a better fit.
Mercí a vous,

Katie: the workshop in Provence was replaced with the one in Charleston.
Best. Helene

That makes more sense. If there was a notice regarding the change, I missed it. I hope to come to Charleston in May.
