1:1 Photographic Styling Masterclass for Florists & Growers

I release a handful of days each season as one-to-one masterclasses based in my garden studio in South Oxfordshire. 

Growing, styling and photographing flowers is one of my great passions and I love sharing what I know. As a florist or flower grower it's vital to document your work for prospective clients, but there's more need than ever now to create stunning imagery for your website as well as engaging content for your social media channels. These visuals have become a key branding, marketing and sales tool and to stay ahead of the competition you may feel you need to raise your game.

 

That's where I can help. As a flower grower and ex-florist, with twenty years of styling and art directing shoots for lifestyle magazines and commercial clients and the experience of styling and photographing my flower book 'In Bloom', I'm in a unique position to help you tell the story of your business in an organic, authentic way through beautifully styled images. 

Whether you are just starting out or are an established business in need of a rethink and refresh, I will equip you with the skills you need to create content you will be proud of. Don't feel like you need to be an expert photographer - you really don't. And there's no need for specialist expensive photographic equipment. You can achieve great results on a smartphone if you'd rather not use a camera. I'll show you how. 

The process?

 

Firstly get in touch with me here, after an initial email to discuss your requirements, I'll tailor-make a day just for you. 

On the day, we'll examine your brand's current visual offering and brainstorm where you'd like to take it. I'll guide you through the process of identifying your signature style and help you develop the key styling elements to make it easy for you to achieve stunning photos yourself every time.  

 

I'll go through all aspects of styling; from choosing and making your own backdrops to selecting props. I'll also touch on the basics of photography if you need me to. We'll work side by side to build photographic sets and I'll help you breakdown why things do and don't work as we style and art direct shots together. Depending on what you require, we'll be working with everything from simple flat-lays, to more involved tablescapes and garden-based harvesting shots. 

It's truly amazing what can be achieved in a day

A styling masterclass 1:1 has the potential to be a real game-changer for your business. It is amazing what can be achieved in a day and how quickly the changes can be implemented into your business. You'll go home with a set of professional images that you've styled, as well as the confidence and skills to produce beautiful content independently again and again. 

Through experience, I've found the best way to get the most from our time together (and your investment) is for you to come prepared. It's best to bring finished floral arrangements with you so we can really focus on styling the shots rather than building displays from scratch. During the growing season we can raid my cutting garden for top ups if we need to. Once I know what you need, we'll be able to work out all the details. A couple of weeks after our time together, we'll schedule a follow-up call/Skype call to see how things are going for you. 

Classes run from 10am to 3.30pm, on a day that is mutually convenient. 

 

Investment, £795 for the day and a 30-minute follow up call/Skype call.

Includes all styling materials required for the day (but excludes flowers)
