These food photography workshops are hands-on learning experiences that allow you time to learn, observe, and practice food photography and food styling.
All of our food photography workshops include three distinct teaching formats:
- Direct Instruction where we talk you through concepts with picture examples and Q&A;
- Live Demonstrations of each concept with a tethered camera set up (meaning you’ll be able to see our camera and photos live on the screen as we do demo photo shoots);
- Practice Photo Shoots that give you a chance to practice and get individualized coaching and feedback as needed.
Our food photography workshops are hosted in the North Loop area of Minneapolis, Minnesota, in our rustic-industrial 3,000 square foot studio.
Also, be excited: we have enough windows, space, and props to provide each attendee with their own table and window to use for practice. Wheee!
Not from Minneapolis? No worries. Over two-thirds of our workshop attendees come from out of state. Most fly in the night before and leave on the last day of the workshop. There are several hotels within 1-2 miles of our studio and we can give you recommendations for getting around once you register.
In general, our workshop attendees are:
- food lovers
- food bloggers
- people who want to start a food blog
- new-camera-owners who want to step up their food photography game
- social media managers
- food photographers for food brands
- content creators for food brands
- creative directors for food brands
- independent freelancers
- ALL AROUND AWESOME PEOPLE.
Lindsay taught us a ton editing, storing, and uploading tricks I didn’t even know were possible. A billion lightbulbs were going off in my head followed by even more “aha” moments.

To be completely honest I was hesitant about how much I would get out of the workshop, given my photography background. But I walked away feeling inspired to really take my photography to the next level. After just a few shoots I am already so happy with the improvements I am seeing.
It was rejuvenating and just what I needed. It was the highlight of my year!

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a beginner or advanced photographer; her workshop is incredibly beneficial for all levels. It was worth every penny!
