One of the few positives we can take from the current situation and the disruption to our normal working lives has been the extra time it has gifted us…so much time!
What could be better than a day photographing mouthwatering food prepared by two top chefs….Oh yes eating it too! That’s what 20 keen photographers got to do on the recent Olympus Food Photography event at Kent Cookery School, where an eclectic array of fresh dishes were cooked up using delicious seasonal ingredients.

Picture the scene: 10 keen photographers grouped in a stylish restaurant in St. Margarets, hungry to learn all about the ins-and-outs of Food & Drink Photography. Enter Olympus Ambassador Marcus Clackson, ready to teach exactly that!
Lifestyle bloggers Julia Rebaudo (@stylonylon) and Milly Kenny-Ryder (@millykr) teamed up with Soho House to host a Food Photography workshop of 15 attendees using the Olympus PEN cameras and 17mm & 12mm lenses.
Love was most certainly in the air for the latest Olympus event at Soho’s vibrant Graphic Bar, with a group of lucky photographers assembling for a ‘Speed Dating’ workshop like no other! The group was split into smaller groups, each starting off by taking part in one of three sessions hosted by the Olympus Ambassadors and experts.
No travel photography portfolio is complete without a few snaps of food. Apart from being delicious, foreign food is a world away from standard British fare: whether it’s a mezze breakfast in Jordan, a sushi lunch in Tokyo or a steak dinner in New York. But good photos of food – as every travel photographer has discovered – are hard. So thank goodness for us: we’ve polled some of our top ambassadors and compiled their top tips for food photography into this delicious list.
