What Will Happen

Food Photography!  It is more than just getting your camera out and clicking the shutter button – it is the styling, the lighting and being able to capture the soul of the food through the art of photography.  At this Welshot Photographic Academy Evening in Chester we are privileged to welcome Jonathan Thompson  to be your Team Leader. 

Jonathan is a master of food photography – an expert in styling and editing – specialising in meaningful, visually and emotionally driven promotional pieces to share your voice and story and Tonight at this Welshot Academy Evening at the Chester Crowne Plaza, he will be passing on his knowledge and skill to you.

Not only will you be learning how to style, light and photograph the beautiful plates of food (all supplied) but bring your laptop and we will help you edit your photos too.
