I have over 30 years experience as a professional cook in most subjects, so we'll be able to have a lesson together on your favourite. I'll give you recipe suggestions for you to choose from.
Also, freelance food styling for photography and tv has been a big part of my work and here's something else we can do. To be a food stylist you need to be able to cook anything. This requires you to watch the experts. If you live in the Byron Bay to Gold Coast areas, I can come to you with a lot of props and backgrounds to use (no cost for these). The food cost will vary according to choices. I'll show you how to cook it for home, as well as for photography, then we can set up scenes that are good enough for a magazine. Or you can come to me, if you prefer.
We can just cook a recipe together or we can spend a 5 hour day together and set up at least 3 shots. I'll pass on a lot of tricks and advise you on the ways for you to get started in the industry.
Or bring a friend and just learn to cook for home and for fun.
After 3 years at TAFE learning to cook, I’ve worked in many areas of the food industry, including food styling for magazines, cookbooks and advertising, cooking demonstrations, catering, teaching and restaurant reviewing. This has given me a wide knowledge of food.
Our first lesson would be over the phone (or email), so that we can discuss what you would like to cook. Perhaps you could email me food photos that you like and so we can do something similar. I'll give you some tricks of the trade.
If we spend a day together cooking AND styling the food, there's a minimum of 5 hours. No travel costs. I'll bring the props and equipment. Food costs will vary according to choices made.
If you prefer, we can just cook together, without worrying about food styling it for photography. *There will be a discount to $30 per hour if we just cook.
