I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop, Bianca is a wealth of knowledge and provides with the information and examples required to make it easy to understand. We then had the opportunity to apply these examples in real life by completing a photo shoot. Whilst I had studied the design principles a few years ago it was great to understand how it could be applied to food styling. I highly recommend this class to anyone who is interested in learning how to style food for photography.

What a great course. It successfully marries the theory with the practical and the results are top class. Bianca is a highly regarded food stylist working in the field so students benefit from her experience and insight. She generously shares her props and backgrounds so students can style professional images and the addition of a professional photographer takes student work to the next level. I happily recommend this course. You’ll love it!

It’s amazing what I have learnt in this 2 day food styling course at The Melbourne School of Styling. It was not only fun but a real learning curve where we got to be hands on. Bianca allowed my own sense of style flow through to the images while gently directing ideas and placement of props. I now feel ready to be styling my own shots with confidence.
