Discover how they weave their creative process & give you exclusive access to how they shoot an editorial quality food image.
With an extensive client list that covers the who’s who of the foodie media world, Hugues and Wachsmuth have worked on innumerable magazine shoots, editorial projects and advertising campaigns. Fiona was named New Zealand’s Best Editorial Food Stylist and was shortlisted this year's International Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year Awards in the stylist category. Manja has numerous international accolades under her belt, including winning two second place wins in this year's International Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the year awards. She has photographed more than ten cookbooks, including the multi awarded Hiakai by Monique Fiso.
Watch as the duo perform an exclusive live editorial shoot talking through each step they make and allowing for opportunities for questions from the audience.
The shoot will be followed by a bespoke Pink Lady® apple inspired lunch put together by the talented Francky Godinho at St Georges Restaurant.

After lunch, you will have an exclusive, hands-on workshop with multi award-winning food styling duo Fiona Hugues and Manja Wachsmuth thanks to Pink Lady® apples.
Covering everything from set up, backgrounds and propping advise, to navigating natural light, composition, how to practically plate or place ingredients and finally taking the shot, you will leave this workshop with the ability to take your food shots to the next level.
