Napa Food Photography Workshop!

Uhm HAY GUYS. Through it’s been less than a week since my first #foodtographyworkshop ended, I am SO excited to announce that I am hosting another photography workshop in September! And guess what? It’s in NAPA.

Join me and my co-host, Bella Karragiannidis of Ful-filed, for a 4-day, 3-night retreat held in the picturesque Napa Valley of Northern California. We will be staying on a stunning estate, spending our days immersed in food styling, photography and growing together as creatives. 


The Fundamentals of Photography
We’ll start our workshop with a brief overview of photography. We’ll then get to know our cameras and settings, as well as ISO, shutter speed, and depth of field.

How do you create a well-composed food image? We’ll discuss the rule of thirds, balance, and geometry, as well as tips and tricks for nailing the perfect food shot.

We’ll put together beautifully styled food stories, demonstrate how we choose a shooting space and example how we select props to fit the scene

Movement + the Human Element
From that drippy caramel to a perfect powdered sugar dusting, we will analyze movement and motion in our food photos. We will explore various ways to incorporate human presence in food photography and we will have opportunities for you to capture those action shots that add so much life and movement to a photo.


Styling + Props
Props are just as important as the food that we photograph. The beauty of a handmade plate, the texture of a wrinkled linen cloth – incorporating the right props into your storytelling will set your images apart. We will cover how we approach prop selection for a shoot and share tips on how we have built our prop collections without breaking the bank.

Learning to photograph is only half of the skill set needed to master food photography; editing is where you create your style and leave your personal stamp on your work. We’ll do an in-depth tutorial of Lightroom, learning techniques that will make your photography stand out.

Marketing + Client Work
Turning your passion into a business is no small feat. In just two years, both Sarah & Bella built their blogs into profitable careers. We’ll discuss branding techniques, how to reach out to clients and how to develop social media strategies that pay off.


Nestled in the hills above the Napa Valley, this award-winning architect designed home is going to be the dreamiest setting for our workshop. The home is surrounded by an immaculate landscape that includes a swimming pool & spa, wood-fired pizza oven and a covered outdoor dining pavilion where we will gather for long table dinners each night.

  1. #crushed. I was so looking forward to your next workshop announcement … but I will be in France in September (which is not that bad, right?). But I would have loved to attend, it sounds amazing (in Napa, I mean, Come on!). Hopefully the next one 🙂

  2. This is amazing! I am looking into going to Northern california that weekend! I
    If any weird situation comes up where you have a client not be able to attend the entire weekend, and you would let us split it, let me know! I would love to be able to do both 🙂

    Again, this is such a crazy exciting opportunity!
