#LIF17 Food Styling & Photography Workshop with Food&_ (Ham & Friends)

Food Styling and Photography

This summer will see the return of Leeds Indie Food Festival, a city-wide celebration of independent food and drink culture, and we couldn’t be more excited to have our newest venture, Ham & Friends, hosting this fantastic event.

Join food photographer and stylist Victoria Harley (Simple Things, Channel 4 Food, Slow Dough) and food journal Food&_ for an intimate hands-on food styling and photography workshop. Hosted at Ham & Friends in Leeds’ vibrant Northern quarter, you will learn a range of practical tips to propel your food photography to the next level. Working with a selection of dishes and sets, Victoria will share her industry secrets, walking you through all aspects of the process including; colour selection, lighting principles for working with natural light, composition, the use of props and prop sourcing enabling you to get the most out of both your mobile and DSLR photography. Katy and Ross from Food&_ will also be on hand throughout the workshop to answer any questions you have about publishing your photography online, creating an online portfolio, or creating and making the most of your own food blog.

After finishing the workshop with an informal question and answer session, you’ll end the day sharing a meal with Victoria, prepared by the talented Ham & Friends kitchen, where you can ask any final questions or perhaps put your new found skills to the test!

The workshop costs £100 per person and is suitable for all levels of photographers, whether you’re looking for an introduction to the art of food styling and photography, or simply seeking to improve your existing skills. The ticket cost includes refreshments during the workshop, and a meal and drinks at Ham & Friends afterwards, but you will have to supply your own camera!

Tickets are available to buy here.
