This 2-day workshop will cover natural light food photography techniques, image styling and post-production, run by prominent food photographer Fran Flynn. On day 2, you will experience an on location shoot in a restaurant.
I attended the Adelaide Le Cordon Bleu Food Photography & Styling workshop 18. The amount of information received and actually taken in was incredible. There were people of all skill levels and I believe each one of us progressed in our own skills over the two days. Highly recommended and I can't wait to further my knowledge with Le Cordon Bleu again soon. Alexandra Kate - The Botanical Table
