Friends,

If you live in or near San Francisco, or if you’ve always wanted to visit the Bay Area, this is the time. One of my very favorite friends, Andrew Scrivani- food photographer for the New York Times, is leading two photography workshops on the weekend of May 19 and 20.

Tell me you’ll be there.

I die.

Andrew and I met last year at one of his workshops, so I can assure you that both he and his photography lessons are incredible. His photography, all moody and nuanced, is simply the best I’ve ever seen in the world of food. No pictures make me salivate quite so viciously, make me hungry as immediately, as Andrew’s do. In fact, I think I’ve roped him into photographing my upcoming cookbook.

I die again.

very, very dead at this point.

Details about the 5/19 & 5/20 Workshops in San Francisco, California:
In this 6-hour workshop, Andrew will be covering the basics of food photography such as composition, lighting, propping, and food styling. Class size is limited, so you will have the opportunity to work with Andrew both in small groups and one-on-one.

Start the morning learning about Andrew and his craft (lecture and Q&A); then spend the rest of the morning and afternoon practicing your photography skills with Andrew in a “photography set” environment (plated dishes provided by Contigo, the beautiful host restaurant). Finish the day with a group review and critique session.

This is an amazing opportunity to learn from and practice with one of the best in the field! Register below.

When
Workshop 1: Saturday, May 19, 10am-4pm
Workshop 2: Sunday, May 20, 10am- 4pm

Where
Contigo Spanish and Catalan restaurant
1320 Castro Street in Noe Valley

Cost
$250 per person (per day), including lunch.
