Styling + Photography Workshop with the Artful Desperado

StylingWorkshop-1I first met Gabriel at an impromptu breakfast back in 2013 and have been a fan of his work ever since. Have you checked out his blog, The Artful Desperado? It’s amazing and I’m super excited that he’ll be hosting a styling and photography workshop on Saturday, May 23rd in our shop space!

This hands on workshop is designed to teach you the basics of styling and photography. It will be jampacked with pro advice to take your styling game to the next level.

Lessons include: the process of styling from beginning to end, natural light and composition, basics of photo editing, affordable photography equipment and props (including practicing with some rad products from London Fields Shoppe and a few DIY tips), and tips for using images on social media.

Learn how to bring your vision to life, develop your style, and meet a bunch of creative Vancouverites. Win/win!
