I took the opportunity to join a visual story telling sand styling food workshop why? In the process of doing more personal branding photoshoot I discovered that I really enjoyed helping my client with their brand story and was looking to offer a full story feature rather than only portraits. I have been therefore looking for workshop teaching about styling and story telling when I came across the Sisterhood retreat in Paris. A workshop organised by Sif Orellana, photographer, writer, author and publisher of 12 cookbooks and Sandra Manhut food stylist turned very successful lifestyle & food photographer.
It was 4 days full one styling, walking the streets of Paris sourcing props topped with a cooking & dinning experience with Eleonora Galasso.
Eleonora is Italian, living between Rome and Paris (this is was I would call the dream life). She is an author, cooks as published “As Roman Do” as delightful book about Rome and food and is about to publish a second one.
Sandra and Sif had arranged for us to cook dinner at Eleonora’s flat in the heart of the Latin Quarter in St Germain des Prés. We met Eleonora in a typical French cafe for the aperitif, she walked us around to tell us about local history while we walked to her flat in one of the oldest streets of Paris.
