Earlier this month, I was fortunate enough to attend the Lens & Larder workshop taught by Andrea Gentl and Martin Hyers of Gentl and Hyers photography and food stylist extraordinaire Susan Spungen. I have long admired the works Gentl & Hyers. They are truly masters of light, composition, and storytelling. To learn from this team was an absolute dream come true.
The workshop was hosted by Imen McDonnell of Modern Farmette and Cliodhna Prendergast of Breaking Eggs at the gorgeous Ballynahinch Castle in Connemara, Ireland. I can’t stay enough wonderful things about Imen and Cliodhna. They went above and beyond to ensure we all had the best experience possible.
Over the course of 2 days, we walked and foraged in the nearby forest, shot portraits of a beekeeper and a butcher, prepared a picnic on the beach, and photographed a master feast that looked good enough to be a Bon Appetit spread. Did I mention we stayed in a castle? :)
Below are some images from the workshop.
