Meeta is back – Food photography and styling workshop news
Meeta Wolff, author of What’s for Lunch Honey? blog and e-cook book, photographer, food stylist and co-hostess of Plate to Page workshops, is coming back to Dubai this October. When she touched down in Dubai this March we had never met in real life before and as I waited for her to come down from the apartment to do last-minute prop shopping I had a few unexpected, last-minute nerves; however the second she stepped out of the door with a huge smile on her face I knew everything would be more than all right.
There were other first time meetings as we welcomed our workshop participants at the stunning Nasimi Beach, Atlantis The Palm, Dubai. But after two days of intensive food photography and styling tuition, hands-on practical sessions, a fantastic field trip to Lafayette Gourmet where we had to tear ourselves away, and lots and lots of eating, we were a like a group of old friends.
We had so much great feedback and many enquiries to repeat the course so when Miele said we could use their beautiful gallery equipped with the latest, awesome equipment and bathed in lots of lovely natural light (the food photographers’ friend) Meeta booked her flight.
Since Meeta made the announcement on Thursday registrations have been hitting my in-box. It’s first come, first served and once again a very small group so Meeta can give as much one-to-one advice as possible. Read more about the course here, plus we’ve got a few more announcements to make about who is cooking for us and what we’ll be eating! The most touching thing has been the lovely messages we’ve received from attendees of the inaugural workshop. It’s been great to catch up with everyone’s news and find out how the course helped with their ambitions.
P.S. Testing the theory once again that you can get a good judge of someone’s character from their blog, I’m meeting up for the first time with another food blogger this Autumn. Jeanne from Cook Sister, another of the Plate to Page gang, has (recklessly!) offered me a bed for the night when I fly to London for Food Blogger Connect! She’s promised me a braai.
