WHAT
During our three intense and intensive days together, I'll bring you through three of my signature masterclasses based on foodstyling, photography and postproduction. The classes take place in my own Scandinavian light-filled home and studio in Aarhus - the second largest city in Denmark, ranked number 2 by Lonely Planet in its list of the ten best destinations in Europe to visit in 2016. 

We meet up each morning at 10 AM and start the day with a good cup of coffee or tea, a glas of freshly squeezed juice, freshbaked pastries + an introduction to each other and the program. After this I'll bring you through the first classes of the day. Half way we'll enjoy a delicious lunch and then continue with the classes. We round up at 4 PM.

Throughout my career as a cookbook creator, I have shot most of the food photos for my 12 bestselling cookbooks (+ for multiple food-and lifestyle features for magazines) in my own home with a minimum of equipment and squaremeters. It may surprise you how easily you can mimic the results of a giant studio with tens of thousands of Euros worth of high-end equipment. It is easy to get lost in the many options for equipment and set-up, but studios are really all about creative control, and managing the variables that affect the light is key. In this 3-day live course I share with you all my secret tips and tricks on how to shoot eyerollingly beautiful images in your own home or when you are “on the go”. I will teach you, how to style stellar dishes, shoot food photos, that will make your audience and clients drool, and how you bring your shots from "GOOD" to "WOW" in postproduction.

During the first month of fall in Denmark, when the days are getting shorter, the wind is chillier and leaves are beginning to turn brilliant hues, the Danes love to snuggle up inside their cozy homes surrounding themselves with twinkling candles and indulging in big cups of tea and homebaked cinnamon swirls. To me, this time of the year has always been ideal for building a deeper understanding of different topics and enhancing my skills, so that I’m ready to put them into play and step-up my business when spring comes around. The interesting thing is, that surveys actually document that colder temperatures are conducive to more focused brain activity. So regard this as the perfect invitation for getting some serious studying, and up-leveling of your skills in food-styling, photography, and editing done.
