Build a photo-worthy place setting from the ground up with the guidance of tabletop and prop stylist Robin Zachary, and photographer and food stylist Kate Lewis, against the added bonus of a West Elm backdrop. Shooting on location at the beloved houseware store’s DUMBO location, students will have the opportunity to stage small scenes and tablescapes while learning simple lighting and styling techniques.

This is a BYOC (bring-your-own-camera) workshop that will meet for an introduction and slideshow session in the Photoville Workshop Area before heading out for a live, guided shooting session at West Elm in DUMBO. The workshop also includes an optional wrap-up session and casual group critique, where students can share work and ideas, and get feedback from instructors and workshop peers.
