Food Styling & Photography Course

What you'll learn

Spice up your food photos with our cooking and photography courses in Sydney!

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.

This fun and informal workshop will take you through the fundamentals of food styling so you can create amazing food images using props and lighting you have at home - along with your smartphone, a few insider tricks and some very clever apps!

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.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this food styling & photography workshop, you will be able to capture:

  • Picture-perfect antipasto platters (everybody say cheese!)
  • Plating with produce (a what's in season challenge)
  • A sweet and creamy parfait glass dessert (more sprinkles, please)

This 3-hour hands-on workshop will cover the basics of food styling and smartphone photography as you plate and style up three picture-perfect dishes.

What will be covered in this course?

  • Food photography do’s and don’ts
  • Plating your dishes and using props to create a context
  • Lighting
  • Composition: how to fill the space, how to use negative space
  • Finishing and posting your images

Please note: This is not a cooking class, so you’ll be working with quality pre-prepared foods, and the focus will be on plating and photographing. Although there will be some food available for snacking (and you may eat your masterpieces when you’re done snapping), this workshop does not include a full sit-down meal. We are not able to provide substitute ingredients for people with allergies or food intolerances.

Who is this course 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.

What to bring to class

  • Bring your smartphone (or camera if you prefer)
  • Bring an apron
  • Wear closed in shoes
  • If you have long hair, please tie it back
