Join award-winning photographer Celine Marchbank for a Leica Akademie workshop at the Leica Store City, for a day of food photography.

An opportunity to participate in a food photography workshop set within the world famous Borough Market, exploring the beauty of food and how to capture it creatively.

This is an opportunity to gain an insight into Celine’s way of thinking, while being challenged on the day to produce a small body of work for review in the afternoon.

Workshop participants will be set practical exercises with specific tasks in mind, experimenting with such things as depth of field, light, composition, mood and finally how images can work together in a series. This will help participants try new skills and improve on existing.
