Food Photography Workshop in Ludlow
Earlier this month I attended a food photography workshop in Ludlow. This was held over the course of a long weekend at the GORGEOUS Redford Farm Barns (which is every bit as beautiful as the pictures lead you to believe). The workshop was over the same weekend as the Ludlow Food Festival, which is held in and around the castle in the centre of the town. In short, the festival was absolutely foodie heaven, and is definitely worth a visit if you love good food, a bit of people watching (or is that just me?) and exploring a lovely bit of the English landscape.
Danielle Acken and Tami Hardeman were the instructors over the weekend. These two are a couple of light bending, food conjuring super heroes. They both have so much passion about the work that they do (food photography & styling respectively), which was positivity infectious amongst the group of photographers who attended. There’s something so energising and inspiring about connecting with people who are totally on the same page as you, and are just as passionate about the creative journey. I can’t thank both of them enough (maybe this post will do it in a small way!) for a fantastic workshop and heaps of inspiration.
Here are just a few of my favourite images taken over the weekend. I already want to go back…
A massive thank you to Jude from Redford Farm barns for being such a fab host. I didn’t take many photos of the interior, so you will just have to visit yourself to see how gorgeous it is… I think I got distracted by the lambs and ducklings.
Sarah and I making tzatziki, and photographying the process…
Oh Ludlow, you are so darn lovely!
And finally, the food festival. Be prepared to feel hungry!
Thanks to Scott from Hilltop Honey for being a willing interviewee about your beautiful honey products. Hope you had a fab time at the festival!
I may have fallen in love with Harp Lane Deli…
The final part of the workshop was photographing one of the products which we brought back from the food festival. Mine was honeycomb and honey, so I set about finding a way to photograph this in all its gorgeous golden stickiness. All I have left to say is yum!
