I throughly enjoyed the new class and loved the new handouts that came with it. I’ve been a graphic designer for the past 15 years and I’ve decided to take the leap and start my own business for both lifestyle/family photography and graphic design. I’m not sure I would be doing that without the classes and encouragement from you. I look at your portfolio and blog and they are both a major inspiration to me — I know if I keep pushing my boundaries and continue to soak up as much knowledge as possible, I can absolutely make this happen! -Dawn

Tara will teach you the tools and tricks you need in both a basic and extensive styling kit and share tips on the business side of food styling. Plus she’ll share the differences in the styles and techniques you may need for advertising, publishing or recreational posting.

You’ll learn the importance of prop selection, cooking for the camera angle, ingredient choices and preparation that go into making a food pic look magical. Tara will also show you methods for hot and cold drinks, the perfect slice of cake, photo-ready ice cream and how to get that exquisite drip of syrup off a ledge of pancakes on film.

Please note: you will need to have access to a moderately stocked kitchen to fully participate in this course, as well as:
— Bag or toolbox to assemble your own styling kit
— Camera (of any kind) to photograph your assignments to upload to the student gallery for Tara’s feedback
