About This Class

Have you ever wanted to watch a photographer set up a shot? Join me in this food-styling meets tabletop-photography class and I'll lead you through a few different DIY setups that you can recreate in your own kitchen at home. In this class we will be photographing fruit and taking easy, actionable steps to add drama and life to your images.

This class is for photographers, instagrammers, food bloggers, and anyone looking for a fun art project to warm up your camera skills. All you'll need is your DSLR or smart phone and we can dive right in!

(Of course if you want to invest in specialized macro photography equipment there's a section for that too and I go through my favorite solutions from $10-$900)

Really good at waiting in lines

Hi! I'm Tabitha and I teach photography classes. I'm a lifestyle portrait photographer for a living and I make that living in the gorgeous state of Utah! I love plants and I knit and I had my appendix removed in 2014 and sometimes I worry that I might need it later to talk to aliens. Other than that I'm pretty normal.
