If you were to have told me 5 years ago when I borrowed my parents DSLR camera for the first time that I was going to teach a food photography workshop, I simply would have laughed. I only wanted to learn photography so that I could capture some decent images to add to my blog posts. It didn’t take long for me to realize that I loved every aspect of being behind the camera. I became immersed in learning the in’s & out’s and was rewarded years later by being able to extend my knowledge with a group of 22 other inspiring photographers!
Teaming up with Whole Foods Market in Oxnard, we invited anyone interested in learned how to snap insta-worthy food photos for a few hours of tips & tricks followed by socializing and snacking. I was so thrilled that 22 people wanted to come learn from ME! Holy smokes guys, I taught a food photography workshop and it was a success!
If there is anything this whole experience has taught me, believe in your dreams and keep going after them with reckless abandonment. Am I the best food photographer out there? ABSOLUTELY not. Do I have the willingness to learn and keep growing? You betcha. That’s all you ask out of yourself and with a lot of hard work and belief in the fact that you can do it, you’d be surprised what doors open.
Keep Living a Stylized Life.
