Course description

Amazing food photos are gold – they can make or break your foodie blog, send your Instagram likes soaring or bring hungry customers via your Facebook page.

But it’s not as easy as you’d think to nail that laidback latte or effortless eggs shot – and that’s why some lucky folks call food styling their day job. Meet professional food stylist/photographer Alex Squadrito. A content producer in digital marketing, he’s also the guy behind the lens at the wickedly tempting Insta page @4foodssake, and food/travel/lifestyle blog ForFoodsSake.

At this 3-hour workshop, Alex will take you through the fundamentals of food styling so you can create amazing food images using the things you have at home – even your smartphone!

You’ll get the basic skills (and loads of tips, tricks and confidence) to plate, style and compose some very “likeable” and tasty food pics.

Ideal for…

This class is perfect for food bloggers, Instagrammers and café owners wanting to improve their food styling and photography. It is also suitable for home cooks and foodies who want to learn more about plating and styling.

A sweet-as Oozing Waffle Stack (pass the syrup please)
