In June of 2012, I will be co-teaching a workshop in France! FRANCE!
I will be partnering with Susan Hermann Loomis, an award-winning journalist and cookbook author, for a 3-day cooking and photography class.
Susan lives in a restored 15th-century convent in the small town of Louviers in Normandy, which is where the classes will take place.
As Susan says, "During this three day class you will cook with me and photograph with Clare. You will learn the fine points of both arts, and you will leave equipped to prepare gorgeous meals, take gorgeous photographs, and put them together in your own individual way. Our three days together will include hands-on cooking classes, meals accompanied by small-production wines and artisanally made cheeses, hands-on photography sessions where you will learn techniques, and tips and secrets."
We will cover natural light food photography, including exposure, utilizing available light, composition, and prop styling. We will capture a sense and place and tell a story with photographs as we visit the local market, learn how to choose ingredients, bring them into the kitchen and turn them into gorgeous dishes. We will view and critique our photographs, discussing what we've created, learned, and expect to continue in our photography.
When: June 25-28, 2012
Cost: 1800 euros
