A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be able to host a food styling & photography workshop with the talented Carey Nershi in rural New York. We stayed in this renovated barn in a small town called Denver, nestled at the top of a hill surrounded by 300 acres of vibrant and lush autumn foliage. There we got to know our attendees, Ashley, Bonnie, Linda, Sylvia, Summer, Willow, and Sam. We spent the weekend shooting, styling, and having long discussions about props, lenses, and general food and photography geekery. Carey and I cooked delicious breakfasts, lunches, and dinners with ingredients from the local farmers’ markets. We went to a historic barn and bought even more food. We walked around the grounds. We (well, mostly Ashley) built fires in the fireplace and huddled around them with hot cider and cocoa. It was the best weekend I’ve had in a long, long time. I have some of my favorite photos from the workshop below, and I want to give a special thanks to everyone who came. I had so much fun getting to know all of you, eat with you, and laugh with you. I hope our paths cross again soon. And I’d also like to thank our generous sponsors who helped made the workshop possible.
