Food styling and photography, that’s what’s happening at the Welshot Photographic Academy Evening at The Bulkeley Hotel  in Beaumaris, Anglesey for May. During this food photography workshop you will be using continuous natural and ambient lighting while learning how to use props, how to style with your food and how to best light the image you wish to make. From Flat-lay to creative photogenic angles, from bokeh to crisp sharp images – your main aim is to leave having not only learned a thing or three about food photography but have a selection of images worthy of any food magazine.

I am now in my second year as a member of Welshot, a unique photography academy that I sampled a few times before joining so I have experience of them dating back a few years. I joined because I wanted to broaden my photographic horizons beyond the landscapes and architecture I naturally lean to. I’ve now done studio work with models and still life setups, an overnight landscape shoot and today I photographed dancers in and around Llandudno in North Wales.
