The Art of Food and Prop Styling with the Artful Desperado

LFSFoodPropStylingThe Artful Desperado returns to London Fields Shoppe this September with a new workshop, The Art of Food and Prop Styling! This was one of our most popular workshops last spring and we sold out so quickly that the second date filled before we could properly announce it! We listened to your feedback from the first class and slightly tweaked the course content to focus on styling, rather than photography. We extended the length of the session and decreased the number of students, so space is * very * limited.

Two dates available:
Saturday, September 12th or Saturday, September 19th, 2015
10:00 am to 2:30 pm
London Fields Shoppe – 692 East Hastings Street, Vancouver (BC)

Cost: $250.00 plus tax | max. 8 students

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!
