Photojournalist Ron Stern is an international food and travel photojournalist. His work has been featured in publications such as Shape Magazine, The Daily Meal, and The Chicago Tribune. He will teach attendees camera basics, lighting fundamentals, composition, subject matter, and styling in a fun and comfortable environment. The workshops are designed to teach photography essentials that will help attendees promote their business, increase social media followings, develop Pinterest pages, create marketing content or simply supplement their love of sharing food photos.

The first workshop will focus on smartphone photography and is scheduled on Sunday, May 22nd from 3-5pm. Attendees will learn the essentials of capturing beautiful food and beverage photos, using the functionality and convenience of a smartphone.

The second workshop will speak to digital camera photography and is scheduled on Tuesday, May 24th from 4-6pm. Attendees will learn to use professional strategies and fundamentals to capture press-worthy food and drink photos using a digital camera.

Both classes will be held at Zeal – Food for Enthusiasts, located at 1710 Pearl Street in Boulder. Zeal has generously offered to provide food and drinks for attendees to photograph and then enjoy at no extra cost. Zeal’s food and beverage menus include bright and garden-fresh items using whole ingredients that are both delicious and nourishing, providing the perfect visual for food and drink photography. Attendees are also welcome and encouraged to stay for happy hour and creative conversation after the workshop (not included in class price).

Each class is $40 a person, or $70 to attend both. Check or cash is accepted on-site for each class. Attendees should call or email Kuvy Ax of ROOT PR at 720.329.7327 or to reserve a spot.
