Tips, Tricks & Hands On: Food Styling for Photographers

Fred Turko & Elliot Shaffner

Take your food styling skills up a notch or two in this day-long workshop led by Fred Turko and Elliot Shaffner, the principals of Fred + Elliott Photography. This talented couple from Richmond, VA boasts a long and impressive list of clients, including Coca Cola, Chips Ahoy, Hamilton Beach, and both Duke’s and Hellman’s Mayonnaise. They have also worked with publications such as Bon Appétit, Garden and Gun, Local Palate, and Virginia Living, among others.

Designed for those who are already working in advertising and photography, this workshop will
feature a morning session filled with tips, tricks, and demonstrations by Fred and Elliott.

After a break for lunch, participants will divide into teams and apply the concepts shared during the morning class. Workshop leaders will work with each team as they engage in hands-on practice, creating their own scenarios with food and props.

Participants should bring their own cameras and tri-pods.
