PAST WORKSHOPS 2015
May 2015: London Food Photography and Styling Workshop
London, a pulsating and vibrant city full of creative impulses and vibrating with new inspiration. I once again teamed up with Jeanne Horak-Druiff, who co-instructed with me and we put together a pretty awesome programme for our participants.
Participants learnt all the elements needed to hone their skills in food photography and we helped them find their way through the jungle of food styling to create the perfect set-up. They learnt the fine nuances of creating an appetizing food image. Furthermore, we guided them to look for the perfect light to create the perfect image - dark and dramatic or crisp and light. A riverside picnic lunch on the Thames and an on-location photo shoot in a character-filled gastropub were both part of our major photography assignments
Date: 1st - 2nd May 2015
What participants said: "I attended a two day course run by Meeta and Jeanne in May 2015 and took so much away from it. Meeta is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the subject of food photography and styling, and it is all the more inspiring that she is completely self taught. Both Meeta and Jeanne have an extremely warm and friendly approach to teaching and made us all feel welcome and comfortable enough to ask for advice and guidance whenever we needed it. The two day course included a perfect balance of teaching time and hands on practical tasks. It is a testament to Meeta's skills as a photographer, stylist and teacher that she has attracted such wonderful sponsors on the way that provided us with incredible food and drinks to photograph (and eat) over the two days. I would highly recommend Meeta's workshops." ~ Ixta Belfrage, London, UK

April 2015: Vienna Food Photography and Styling Workshop
Vienna, Europe's cultural capital and a metropolis with a unique charm and flair, provided the backdrop for my first Food Photography and Styling Workshop in 2015.
Together with my colleague Jeanne Horak-Druiff, who co-instructed with me and the lovely Monika Kogler who was our host, I had a fantastic and very competent team for this workshop.
We focused on all aspects of food photography, including a special session on low-light photography. A sensational field trip to the famous Naschmarkt in the heart of the city, with a special visit to the vintage market was one of the basis for assignment work.Date: 17-18 April 2015
What participants said: The workshop opened my eyes to how far I can take my passion and introduced me to some incredible people who shared similar interests and otherwise seemingly embarrassing snapping habits. The quality of the teaching and planning was incredible, I didn't realise how much one could progress in such a short period of time and I owe it to you, Jeanne, Monica. It takes one thing to enjoy a hobby but another to make something out it and following the course I am now inspired to take things further. ~ Nour Khalifeh, London, UK
