ASMP Food styling workshop for photographers in Salt Lake City.

This past weekend I attended a wonderful food styling workshop taught by Suzy Eaton. It was set up though ASMP Mountain West and hosted by  Pictureline. There was a wealth of information provided. Suzy showed us the tools of her trade. It’s amazing how much a stylist can bring to your team. It’s kind of ironic that most photographers I know complain about amateurs in the market….but at the same time they try to do their own graphic design, web site, wardrobe, set and food styling. I feel like we need to remember how important it is to hire other professionals! 

 When I have a team working on a project each member brings so much to the table as far as talent and creativity. I love having a stylist on my shoots. It frees me to do my job and truly focus on the creative aspects of my photography. I haven’t worked with Suzy yet but I hope to in the  near future. I have been an admirer of her work for quite awhile.

Salt Lake trip continued

After I was done  with the Vincent Laforet – Directing Motion Workshop,  we spent the evening walking around in the downtown area including Temple Square.  It was nice to have a mini-vacation with my girls.

The next day, on our way home, we went to the gardens at Thanksgiving Point.  It was pretty.  I imagine they will actually be nicer in a month or so after they get filled in a little more. They were doing a lot of planting when we were there.  If you go to that area don’t forget to hit the outlet mall by Cabela’s 🙂  (There were some great deals.)

Vincent Laforet workshop

I went to the Directing Motion workshop by Vincent Laforet in Salt Lake City last week. It was a long, fun, educational day. If you have a chance to attend, I highly recommend it. Watching movies will never be the same!!! Seriously! Don’t say I didn’t warn you. 😀
