Join professional food stylist Tami Hardeman and professional food&lifestyle photographer Helene Dujardin for a creative 3 day workshop in Charleston, SC, March 28th-April 1st 2017.

Tami and Helene always try to carve out some time in the year to get together and shoot. Tami food styles, they compose, Helene shoots. It’s a time for them to challenge ourselves but also create together. We nourish both our souls and our bodies.

Finding a week in their schedule to share with others what they know and love is important to us. “Choose a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life” Confucius said. And they believe that.

During the three days of workshop (first and last day being your travel days), we will do lots of hands on demos showing you our process and guiding you through your own mini photoshoots.

While they like to shoot “pretty foods”, they also know the challenges faced by many of you trying to shoot “brown foods” or “flat foods” and will guide you through those challenges. She will share her best tips and techniques about food styling and Helene will share mine about choosing the right lens for the food, how to work the light to your advantage, working camera angles and settings. Together they will talk you through picking the best props and composition to showcase your food.

They aim to create a collaborative environment where you are free to expand upon your usual repertoire or dig deeper into the vibe you like. They aim to foster the style and mood you like or help you get happy venturing out to new territory. They will provide you with the tools and knowledge to do over three fun and energizing days.

Because they believe in the beauty of imperfections, they will show you how to create real life images not perfect ones, images that let the food shine and help you tell a story.

If you have taken workshops with Helene before, this one is the perfect extension to those. A workshop v2 if you like. If this is the first time you are considering a workshop, fear not, they will take every hands on demo from a to z as far as process goes and make “rounds” when you are shooting to offer help and guidance.
