***STOP PRESS***  

We are in the process of moving to a sparkly new website!  Although we will ultimately be redirecting the www.platetopage.com address to point to our new site, there will be a few days when we are in transit and you may not be able to view the site on this address.  During this time you can still access our site by going to http://platetopage.blogspot.com but we promise that new and improved transmission at www.platetopage.com will resume shortly!

From Plate to Page is an intensive hands-on food photography and writing workshop
aimed primarily at food bloggers, writers and photographers like you. It provides an exciting opportunity for those of you looking to enhance and hone your photography and writing skills, both for your blog and for professional work.  It is your opportunity to spend a weekend learing from four of Europe's most experienced food bloggers, in a stimulating and creative atmosphere, building on your existing skills and taking your creativity to the next level. 

These exclusive 2.5-day residential programmes covers basic and advanced food styling and photography as well as writing skills and voice. Through comprehensive practical exercises, hands-on assignments and tasks such as cooking workshops, market or vineyard visits, photo walks and restaurant meals, the programme is designed to address a variety of aspects of food photography, styling and writing.
The workshops are led by four of Europe's most popular and respected food bloggers, freelance writers and photographers, each an experienced teacher and speaker:  Ilva Beretta of Lucullian Delights; Jeanne Horak-Druiff of CookSister!;  Meeta Khurana Wolff of What’s for Lunch, Honey?; and Jamie Schler of Life's a Feast. (Please click here for speaker biographies.)  Each member of this team has been blogging successfully for a number of years and all have done freelance work as a result of their blogs. Together they form a powerhouse of blogging, photography and writing knowledge and share their experience, insight and know-how with an exclusive group of 10 participants.

By keeping the group small, it is possible to present topics in a practical and collective way, with group participation at every step. Over the course of the weekend participiants work individually or in teams to complete assignments in both writing and photography. This includes plenty of one-on-one contact with each participant in a relaxed and social atmosphere where it is possible to ask questions as well as share ideas and practical experience far more freely than in a large auditorium. Time is dedicated to critique, discussion and analysis, helping you to understand, reflect upon and improve your work.
