Are you a food blogger who has been blogging for a while and feels stuck in a creative rut? Do you feel happy with your writing but feel your photography needs work - or vice versa? Is it time to develop your blog into a more professional site but feel unsure how to go about it? Do you feel you have learnt all you can from traditional format conferences where you are one of dozens of bloggers simply listening and taking notes? From Plate 2 Page is your opportunity to take your skills and creativity a step higher and get out of that rut.

From Plate to Page is an intensive hands-on food photography and writing workshop aimed primarily at food bloggers, writers and photographers like you . It provides an exciting opportunity for those of you looking to enhance and hone your photography and writing skills, both for your blog and for professional work.
This exclusive 2.5-day residential programme will be held in Weimar, Germany, on 20 - 23 May 2011 and will cover basic and advanced food styling and photography as well as writing skills and voice. Through comprehensive practical exercises, hands-on assignments and tasks such as cooking workshops, picnic, photo walk and restaurant meals, the programme is designed to address a variety of aspects of food photography, styling and writing.
The workshop will be led by four of Europe's most popular and respected food bloggers, freelance writers and photographers, each an experienced teacher and speaker.
Each member of this team has been blogging successfully for a number of years and all have done freelance work as a result of their blogs. Together they form a powerhouse of blogging, photography and writing knowledge and will share their experience, insight and know-how with an exclusive group of 10 participants.
By keeping the group small, it will be possible to present topics in a practical and collective way, with group participation at every step. Over the course of the weekend we will work individually or in teams to complete assignments in both writing and photography. This will include plenty of one-on-one contact with each participant in a relaxed and social atmosphere where it will be possible to ask questions, share ideas and practical experience far more freely than in a large auditorium. Evenings will be dedicated to critique, discussion and analysis, helping you to understand, reflect upon and improve your work.
For details of the entire 2.5 day course please review our programme.
The cost for the entire 2.5 day course will be 400€ and includes:
* 3 nights’ accommodation (sharing) at the Kipperquelle Bed & Breakfast Inn
* Meals*: 3 breakfasts (Saturday, Sunday, Monday), Meet & Greet lunch on Friday, Picnic lunch on Saturday, Collective Cooking Dinner on Saturday, Lunch on Sunday, Afternoon Tea on Sunday
