FAQs

Q. What do we learn from the workshops?
A. There are two types of workshops to choose –1. Food photography for Beginners workshop, 2. Food photography & styling workshop. You can find out more about the workshops here:
Food photography for Beginners workshop
Food photography & styling workshop

Q. When and where is the workshop?
A. The date and venue will be organised ‘AFTER’ we have reached the required number of attendees (15 or more). For now, you only have to register with a $20 non-refundable deposit to secure a spot.

Q. What if I am interested in both workshops?
A. Even better! It will be a perfect 2-day intensive workshops where you will learn from the basic of food photography to start getting hands-on with food styling. It is the best way to learn. To book both workshops, you will also save $40.00 of the total coast.

Q. Why the $20 non-refundable deposit? Why don’t just set a date and venue, we just pay the full amount and come to workshop?
A. Unfortunately it is not as simple as that, there are many logistics involved to organise a workshop, including cost for venue hire, lunch, equipments, airfare and so forth. I’ve received so many requests asking me to run workshop in your city, but not many actually following up afterwards. There were already a few occasions where I have organised a date and venue for the workshop but had to cancel in the end because those who said they are interested in the workshop actually never register in the end. Hope you can understand where I am coming from.

Q. I have registered, what’s next?
Once we have reached the class size limit (15 or more) for the workshop you have selected, I will start organising the date and venue for the workshop. You will receive an email with all the details of the workshop 4 weeks prior to the actual date. I will send you an invoice with the balance for the workshop, you will have to pay the balance to secure your spot at the workshop.

Q. I have registered but I can’t come to the workshop on the date scheduled? 
A. We will send out an email to those who have registered 4 weeks prior to the actual date of the workshop, I believe that is plenty of time for you to mark it down in your calendar and make sure you are able to attend. If you can’t make it, I will put you to the next workshop in your city once there is another one scheduled. You do not lose your deposit, we simply put your name in the next scheduled workshop.

Q. Is the lunch included in the workshop?
A. Yes, lunch is included in the cost of the workshop! There will be plenty of food at the table for you to practise with what you have learned from the workshop.
