Presented by: Big Leo Productions
The workshop will be led by a product photographer and a product stylist who will provide a few basic ‘place settings’ that students can use to arrange their work with guidance from the instructors on how (and why) to use certain color schemes, when and where to introduce different textures and how to use mostly natural lighting to bring out the beauty of your homemade and hand-crafted wares.
As a food and still life photographer, I work with with clients in the food world to communicate the love, passion, and flavour that go into every project. My images focus on the natural beauty of food and objects, including the striking colors and distinct textures. I work with each client to ensure the message and taste they want to share are clear and vivid.
Growing up in rural Germany, I lived a farm-to-table experience. My grandmother would wash muddy carrots, pluck feathers from freshly slaughtered chickens, and cook the game that my grandfather, an avid hunter, brought home. The rich smells from the stove are still a lovely memory for me. The gift of a camera at an early age sparked a new passion, which I explored further in high school, and which eventually brought me to New York City to earn a master’s degree in fine art photography.
Clients include Food & Wine Magazine, Rodale, HarperCollins, the Food Network and Whole Foods Markets. I am represented by Big Leo Productions. In addition to my work, I offer photography training to culinary ventures, collaborate with pastry chef Albane Sharrard on the recipe blog Whip+Click and am the food photography expert at about.com.
