I’m basically just going to throw this out there, just see what sort of interest it gets, but would any of the Irish food bloggers and foodies be interested in attending a Food Styling Demonstration from someone in the industry?

Erica Ryan is a professional food stylist and works with food across all forms of the media.  If you’ve shopped in a supermarket here, you have probably seen her work, as it appears on many of the Irish produced packages!  Apart from working closely with some of the industry’s finest food photographers, bronzing chickens and beefing up beef burgers are just some of the fascinating things she does on a daily basis.

I have spoken to Erica about the amount of Irish food bloggers out there, and the fact that we all take our own pictures and style the food ourselves.  She would love to give an insight into the world of food styling, if not just to reveal some of the special techniques she uses, but to maybe give us food bloggers, a chance to spruce up our own pictures!  Potentially the demonstration would include a talk about food photography, composition, and then a demonstration of some of the interesting methods used.

Although I have no dates set, I would imagine sometime in August would work and it will rely totally on numbers, so if you would be in anyway interested please leave a comment below or email me.  You don’t even have to have a blog, if you have any sort of interest in food, this is really exciting stuff!

    I’d be interested as well – with the caveat that I’m based in North Cork so my access to Dublin is limited. Let me know what date you’re planning on doing it and I’ll see if I can make it.
