On Saturday afternoon at Urban Garden, one of my favourite local coffee spots, armed with clipboards and pens and fully charged phones, we put on a Styling and Photography Workshop. We got down with the theory behind visual identity, then we got practical learning how to take better styled photos with our phones, perfect for Insta stories and on the go social media photos.
Ty from UG made every effort to look after me and accommodated all my requests. Like: “Ty, erm, can we please move the stag, art, plants, rug and swap the entire shop around?” [Seriously, you can imagine the pressure I put myself under to have the workshop look good was pretty full on when you style interior shoots!] Each time though Ty would say, ‘No worries Hayley’, and off we’d go working out a new solution.
Thanks to sponsors Inside Out, White Magazine, Officeworks Sunshine Coast, The Great State, White Pepper and Saya Skincare, we were able to have some stellar prizes and gift bags for all the attendees. Magazines were gifted so that everyone could make their own mood boards when they got home and be inspired to dream up new imagery ideas. And a big thanks to Complete Audio for their projector. It is a state of the art one and it was white and black like my website branding… so I was totally in love the second I laid eyes on it! A big thankyou to all the people who helped make the day happen and go so smoothly, I really appreciate it!
What running this workshop has made me realise, is that many of you want more help with your styling and photography. And I am on a mission to bring that to you!
