A little over a month ago I held a food photography & styling workshop here in Portland. It felt so good to have one in my hometown, and it was such a wonderful way to meet other local foodies and photographers like myself. The workshop was at Tillamook Station, a gorgeous and lofty event space on the east side of the river. Co-hosting along with me was Christiann, who did an incredible job of getting everything organized while I was out of town the weeks leading up to the workshop. You can peek at her recap of the event here. We started the day with tea, coffee, and donuts and ended it with a delicious seasonal sit down lunch, with lots of shooting, styling, and photography discussions in between. Woven Magazine visited us, too, and did a wonderful feature that you can check out here.
A huge thanks goes to the lovely Amanda Rohde and Sasha Swerdloff, who were the most helpful of assistants and prepared an incredible lunch for us. And a very special thank you to all of the attendees! Olaiya, Megan, Winter, Shauna, Aubrey, Tracey, Rina, Allison, and Karl, it was so wonderful getting to know all of you. I had an amazing time working with you and know I will see your faces again sometime soon. And I also want to thank all of our amazing sponsors below for helping make the workshop happen. Your thoughtful contributions made it an unforgettable event.
