Note: Due to the small size, we are offering two sessions. Please only register for ONE session. Both sessions will be the same content.

This workshop is specifically geared towards small businesses who are wanting to improve their product or food photography for marketing purposes. Whether you are a maker who sells their wares or a person who is handling photography for their employer, this class is for you.

Over the course of the day, we'll talk about natural lighting, composition, styling, creating effective flat-lays and MORE. There will be PDFs and demos by Clare (your instructor) but most of your time will be spent on photo assignments.  The day will end with a photo critique.

This workshop is suitable for all skill levels and students should bring the products they would like to shoot.
