Introduction to Food Photography (half day)


Join leading food photographer Victoria Harley for a hands-on workshop introducing the art of food photography.

This interactive half-day workshop is for anyone wanting to sharpen their photography skills and create mouth-watering images.

Using a variety of locations within the School and its grounds, there will be a series of practical exercises, with students photographing a range of seasonal food products with props.

This half-day workshop is designed for beginners looking to develop the skills and confidence to take their interest in food photography to the next level. Working with a selection of dishes and sets, Victoria will share industry secrets to enable you to get the most out of both mobile and DSLR photography. Offering practical tips and expert advice, she will walk you through all aspects of the process including:

  • Aperture
  • Shutter speed
  • ISO
  • Colour selection
  • Lighting principles for working with natural light
  • Composition
  • The use of props and prop sourcing.

Students are expected to attend with their own DSLR camera, ideally with a spare (charged) battery and memory card. Please contact the School if you would like to attend, but do not have access to a camera.

Refreshments will be available on arrival and throughout the day as well as a seasonal buffet lunch, served at the end of the workshop.
