Harriet Harcourt

Better Food Photography

A full-day intensive workshop designed for anyone looking to upskill in the world of food photography.


A good food photo has two crucial elements: skill in the preparation & styling of the food, and photography know-how specific to this genre.

This workshop covers the essentials of styling including composition, use of colour & props, and how to prepare food for photography.

Alongside these styling principles is the understanding of how food is best photographed including lighting, angles, composition.

The two are interconnected so whether you have a stronger interest in styling or photography, you will benefit greatly from understanding both aspects.

On hand will be plenty of top quality ingredients and a large selection of props & surfaces from my extensive collection for hands-on sessions where you will plan, style & shoot your own images.

A working knowledge of your camera equipment is a prerequisite.

What else is included?

  • Hot & cold drinks, morning tea, lunch
  • Printed course notes for you to take home
  • All materials & props for the practical sessions are included
  • Registration fees

Note: workshops are currently created on demand – please contact me for more information or to register your interest



What I most enjoyed about my experience with Harriet is that I learned rather than just watched. She was not afraid to show me the why in each of her decisions, so I felt that the final result was a true team effort that supported my vision and goals for my brand.
I would, without question, highly recommend Harriet regardless of the size of the project. Harriet is your go-to foodie ‘finesser’.
