'HEALTHY COOKING, FOOD STYLING & PHOTOGRAPHY'
JUNE 3RD-5TH 2018
Join me (Sif Orellana) and my dear friend and über-talented Paris-based colleague, Sandra Mahut, for three days of healthy cooking, styling, creativity and photography, great plant-based food and exploring of the French capital.
'Healthy Cooking, Food Styling & Photography in Paris' will be both a gluten free cooking class, market and cobbled street strolling, shooting, styling and editing sessions in a professional Parisian photography studio, table setting tips, prop hunting, lunches and dinners in our favorite healthy eateries in Paris, as well as afternoon tea and talks about work-life balance, social media and how to turn your hobby into a heart-driven successful business.
This inspiration-packed intimate and intense full three-day workshop in the heart of Paris is personally led by yours truly, accompagnied by my amazing Paris-based friend, photographer, recipe-developer, stylist, and award-winning cookbook writer Sandra Mahut. I, myself, have brought 12 cookbooks to the world, six of which have earned International awards. For the last 15 years, I've worked as a photographer, recipe-developer, television hostess, and fod and travel writer. I founded my own publishing house, Tinkerbell Books, in 2009, and launched my first healthy boutique-café in Denmark, 'Greenilicious', in 2017. You can read more about me and my work here.

CLASSES & FOCUS
We can't wait to teach you fundamentals about food styling and photography with scrumptious hands-on food assignments in Sandra's wonderfully catered Parisian studio packed with the most wonderful props, foodstyling backgrounds and accessories.
PROP TOUR, VISIT TO LOCAL MARKET AND HEALTHY EATERIES
During the workshop, we will take you to some of our most cherished nooks, healthy eateries and prop stores of this captivating city. We will also visit a traditional Parisian marché (market).
You will need to bring your camera - whatever you normally shoot food with is best. Some guests come with nothing but iPhones, others come with film cameras, yet others with point & shoots, and the majority with DSLRs. Bring also your laptop and tripod. It's important that you have a beginning knowledge of how to use your camera.

SIGNED UP FOR SIF'S WORKSHOP HOPING TO HONE MY VISUAL STORYTELLING TECHNIQUES...BUT I LEFT WITH SO MUCH MORE."
For me, the main benefits came when Sif shared the inside secrets of her incredible personal success story and from receiving invaluable individual feedback which she happily provided beyond workshop hours and even upon my return home! Importantly, she makes you feel comfortable instantly, no matter your photographic experience. Her down-to-earth approach helped participants to immediately gel well together which made the workshop fun.
Sif's style of communicating her visual storytelling knowledge is unique and made me feel truly connected and inspired. I returned home equipped with more tools and fully motivated to take action on my dreams.
I can’t speak highly enough of Sif's workshops.

"AFTER SPENDING JUST A FEW DAYS TOGETHER AT A SCANDINAVIAN CHRISTMAS TALE RETREAT, A VERY SPECIAL BOND WAS CREATED BETWEEN EVERYONE IN OUR LOVELY GROUP."
It was such an honor to be a part of this creative bunch, made extra special by our lovely leader and teacher Sif. Her passion and ability to inspire, her big heart and kind words, her empathy and unlimited generosity are so precious and inspiring that we were all in awe. I came back home with a full heart and lots of new friends. It was unforgettable! Thank you Sif for bringing us all together and sharing your hearts and wisdom!”
