Food Styling & Photography Workshops

I’m delighted to be launching my own food styling & photography workshops created to help anyone interested in improving their food or product photography.

I have 35 years’ experience in food styling from advertising to designing and creating props for blockbuster movies (think Lord of the Rings, Avatar, King Kong), product shots and recipes for local producers.

In 2021 I won the Marks & Spencer Food Portraiture category in the Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year competition – a prestigious worldwide food photography competition that attracts thousands of entries every year.

Whether you’re a producer creating your own social media content, a blogger, café or restaurant owner, winemaker, or an aspiring food stylist and/or photographer, the principles of good styling and photography remain the same.

Let me help you get to the next level!



  • A fun and fast-paced half-day workshop designed for anyone creating food photos for social media and looking to lift the quality of their images to the next level. (This can also be applied to drinks & products).
  • We will cover the essentials of styling such as composition, use of colour & props, and how to work out your go-to set-up to give you the confidence to create better images in your own space.
  • The workshop includes hands-on exercises putting into practice the principles of good styling using top quality ingredients.
  • Refreshments, course notes, all raw materials, and props and surfaces for the practical sessions are provided.

  • A full-day intensive workshop designed for anyone looking to upskill in the world of food styling & photography. (This can also be applied to drinks & products).
  • A good food photo has two crucial elements: skill in the preparation & styling of the food, and photography know-how specific to this genre.
  • This workshop covers the essentials of styling including composition, use of colour & props, and how to prepare food for photography. Alongside these styling principles is the understanding of how food is best photographed including lighting, angles, composition.
  • The two are interconnected so whether you have a stronger interest in styling or photography, you will benefit greatly from understanding both aspects.
  • On hand will be a generous helping of top-quality ingredients & a large selection of props & surfaces from Harriet’s extensive props library for hands-on sessions where you will plan, style & shoot your own images.
  • Hot & cold drinks, morning tea, a light lunch, course notes and all materials & props for the practical session are included. (If you’d like to incorporate your own products into the session, let us know and we will plan for that too).
