Save the date: A food styling and photography retreat in Whistler, British Columbia

It seems as though during this year I will be busy teaching several food styling and photography workshops and I could not be any more pleased. I love the opportunity to travel, teach, learn, and meet inspiring people in the process.

As you might remember from a couple of weeks ago, we will be traveling back to Beynac, France in September (that workshop is sold out) and now I am here to tell you about another retreat.

I am so excited to announce that I am teaming up with Angela Ritchie to offer a 4-night/3-day food styling and photography workshop/retreat in Whistler, British Columbia – a place where I have been eager to visit for a long time.

We will open registration next Wednesday February 15 at 9am EST and at that time, I will post a link on this blog of where you can register.

In the meantime, here are the details.

    Oh boy, I live in Vancouver- very close to Whistler. I could not believe when you said Whistler. There is some amazing food grown in the Pemberton region around Whistler and it is a stunning part of the world. So wish I could join you but not sure it is in the cards.

    I live all the way in Australia, and I’d love to come for a holiday! but since my due date (for baby) is 25th August, sadly not this year, I really hope you do something like this again! sounds wonderful.

  6. You have NO idea how much I would love to do this!!! If only I wasn’t living in New Zealand. Would you ever consider doing an online tutorial? I would definitely part take in that. x

    That sounds like so much fun. I have to take kids to college in August and September or I would be in.

  11. leaca says:

    Sounds wonderful but I already have vacation to take kids to college in August and September. I would love to go. It would be fun to learn some tricks of this trade.

  12. Joy says:

  13. Surely very interesting! One day I’d love to visit British Columbia, but it’s not for now… ;-)



  14. Amy says:

    You take such beautiful photos. I love the colours and layout. So artistic.

  15. I would loooove to do this! Question: where would we fly into? There isn’t an airport in Whistler. Would we fly into Vancouver and take our own transportation to Whistler, or would there be someone at the airport to get participants?

  16. Katrina – yes, Vancouver is the closest airport and I believe it’s 2 hours to Whistler. You will have to arrange your own transportation to Whistler, but what I have seen happen in other workshops and always works, is that participants make plans ahead of time to share a car. Hope to see you there!

  17. Fingers crossed I have better luck getting a place in this workshop :) My toes are crossed too!

    When I saw news of this event I dashed over to check the dates. I would have signed up but it is however the last few days of my family vacation to Colorado. Hopefully I can catch up with you guys another time soon! Love the Chateau Whistler!

  19. I grew up in Vancouver and absolutely adore Whistler in the summertime. What a beautiful location to hold your workshop. Would love to say I could be there, but not sure if I can swing it this year.

  20. Sounds incredible, I wish I could attend!

  21. I’ve been wanting to go to Canada. I haven’t been to BC since I was a little kid. It does sound wonderful. Now to scheme so I can come… :)

  22. I want to wish everyone that enters the workshop good luck and those that do squeeze in, Whistler is THE most beautiful place EVER!!! BEST OF LUCK!!!

  37. Jamie says:

    I’m somewhat of a beginner… could I take the course?

  38. Jamie- thank you for your interest. you should definitely know how to use your camera and manual settings but beyond that you should be fine. we will cover the basics of food photography, lighting, learn about my styling philosophy, how to tell a story through images, composition… So there is a lot more beyond the technical aspects. Hope this helps!
