Technology with attitude

Learn to take fabulous foodie photos with FoodSnap!


Seattle is filled with foodies (not to mention opportunities for alliteration) who eat, shop, blog and cook their way around the city.

FoodSnap! is a new workshop for those who want to document their passion with photographs, and is being offered by Foodista and Keren Brown Media. It will be led by Lou Manna, “the Olympus Visionary and New York Times photojournalist, commercial photographer, educator and author of Digital Food Photography. Lou is an associate professor at the School of Visual Arts in New York and a consultant in the Food Studies Program at New York University. He also teaches digital food photography workshops in his studio, and accepts students for private, hands-on classes.”

On September 18, from 10 am to 5 pm, you can learn to take professional food photographs at the Georgetown Studios with Lou “and blogger Lara Ferroni as well as Seattle’s top food photographers and stylists, Rina Jordan, Charity Burggraaf and others.”

“FoodSnap! is open to anyone interested in food photography. The target audience of FoodSnap! is food bloggers, food-related social media, food companies and food photographers… The sponsors, whose products will be used in the displays to be photographed, include Emily’s Chocolates, Frost Doughnuts, Fooducopia, Wink Cupcakes and Red Ticking. Kathy Casey will be serving a Foodsnap Gelee signature cocktail that will be used as photo inspiration as well.”
