1) A talk and presentation about phone photography and Instagram

* The power of Instagram and how to get the most from it
* Finding a style
* Suggestions for styling food for photography
* Taking good photographs with your phone
* Editing your images

2) A practical workshop to put the above ideas into practice.

*We’ll have a selection of ingredients and some of Matt’s favourite props with which to experiment and put some of the above ‘teachings’ into practice, to include styling, shooting, editing and publishing images.

*Matt will be available throughout lunch (served just after 1:30pm) to give individual feedbcak and offer tailored support and advice.

About Matt Inwood…

“I’m an art director and designer with a great passion for Instagram and phone photography. I’ve worked with some of the country’s best chefs, foodies and food photographers during my working life. I understand the power of Instagram as a marketing and communication tool, but I also love the way the app enhances how people think and create in the world of food. I’ve worked with many brands and individuals to create content exclusively for their Instagram accounts, and with nearly twenty years of working in cookbook publishing, I’ve been around the world of food and foodies for a long time.”
