From The Hearth: Creating a Food Story

presented by Jennifer Bakos and Jessica Ramos

May 20, 2017 from 130pm to 530pm
On Location in Derry, New Hampshire


Course Description:

We all know that food is a place of common ground, where people gather to share and consume, whether they are friends, family, or strangers. The way humans interact with food, prepare food, and share food, is a story in itself, and through this workshop you will learn the best ways to photograph the making of gourmet pizza.   

Food is not just something we need to live, but an integral part of our life stories. The goal of this course is to provide tips and tricks on how to create images that not only tell a meaningful story, but an appetizing one as well. Through this workshop you will learn the best ways to photograph what goes into the making of wood-fired pizza with our friend and award winning baker Cheryl Holbert of Nomad Bakery. This class will be on location and you will be immersed in the experience of photographing an artisan baker at work. There will also be an exercise on styling and photographing some of Nomad Bakery’s signature bread; giving you the opportunity to try your hand at creating a scene on your own with food as the inspiration.

The location:

This program will be held at Nomad Bakery which is in a private home in Derry, NH (the address will be sent to participants).  The bakery features a supplemented domestic kitchen and features a full size outdoor cob oven on the property, which will be used for this program.
