You guys this is HUGE!
Andrew Scrivani is a food photographer based in New York and he just taught a food photography class on CreativeLIVE (one of the BEST learning platforms for photographers. They also have great business classes that I think anyone could take so check them out! What I love about CreativeLIVE is that the courses are free while they are live and then you can purchase them if you want. I have quite a few courses from them… cough cough “Sue Bryce Glamour Collection” 😉 ). This weekend they FINALLY had another food photography class and this one I wasn’t going to miss! The last one they had was from Penny De Los Santos and that was before this blog was born.
Andrew Scrivani’s CreativeLIVE class was awesome and since I had bought it, I didn’t catch a whole lot of it live because I wanted to sit down at a later time and watch it ALL. However, I happened to be watching at the right times: 1. when he announced the “Photograph your lunch contest” and 2. When he announced the winners. I had actually just finished photographing my lunch (Pesto Pasta: coming soon) and thanks to Adam’s encouragement decided to enter in the contest. In order to stand out between so many amazing photographs, I had to showcase my creativity and cleverness. Well, it worked because I was selected as 1 of the 5 honorable mentions! A total of 10 people (5 honorable mentions and 5 winners) were shown out of 136 entries!
I am so honored and so very grateful to Andrew Scrivani and CreativeLIVE for hosting this contest. Thank you Andrew for talking about my image live! I am so very grateful to you and to CreativeLIVE for giving me such a wonderful “Continuing Education”. Love you guys!
