Food Photography Workshop with The New York Times' Andrew Scrivani

April 27, 2012

Renowned The New York Times food photographer Andrew Scrivani will be leading 2 hands-on workshops in San Francisco this May 19 and 20! In this 6-hour workshop, Andrew will be covering the basics of food photography such as composition, lighting, propping, and food styling. Class size is limited, so you will have the opportunity to work with Andrew both in small groups and one-on-one.

Start the morning learning about Andrew and his craft (lecture and Q&A); then spend the rest of the morning and afternoon practicing your photography skills with Andrew in a "photography set" environment (plated dishes provided by Contigo, the beautiful host restaurant). Finish the day with a group review and critique session.

This is an amazing opportunity to learn from and practice with one of the best in the field! Register below.
