Food Styling and Photography Workshop in Baja California, Mexico


I am very pleased to announce that I will be teaming again with Ace Camps this coming November (4th to 10th, 2014) for a fantastic workshop in Baja California, Mexico.

This workshop offers 3 1/2 days of instruction and 6 nights in the beautiful peninsula of Baja, with adventures that will take us in Cabo San Lucas, Todos Santos and El Pescadero. The emphasis will be on styling shots that include entertaining, outdoor beach picnics, farms + gardens of Mexico. You will learn about what to look for when taking travel and lifestyle shots of a local food community.




We will spend 4 nights in the southern cape town of Cabo San Lucas and head to Todos Santos for 2 nights and visit the beautiful surf beach called Los Cerritos in Pescadero.


There will be free time to shop around Todos Santos, Cabo San Lucas and see the festivities around Dia de Los Muertos. We will visit galleries, a local Farm to Table restaurant and on Sunday we’ll head to Baja Beans Roasting Company for their brunch where you will have a chance to buy from the Mexican locals.

Baja California Sur is characterized by deserts, mountains and coastal flatlands. Expect to see the biggest cactus trees ever!

If you are interested in learning about food styling and photography while spending time learning about the cuisine of Mexico this is your chance. SLR is required with understanding of basic elements of photography such as aperture, exposure, shutter speed. Tripod and a computer with photo imaging software are a plus.


The 3 1/2 day workshop includes:

• 6 nights* (based on shared occupancy) = 4 nights in Cabo San Lucas + 2 nights in Todos Santos

• 6 breakfasts

• 4 lunches

• 4 dinners

Beverages + snacks throughout the workshop.

Airport transportation to and from San Jose del Cabo International Airport – and throughout the workshop. We are road trippin’ – visiting beaches + small farms.

Space is limited to 10 people.

  3. I have your latest book, I love the recipes and cannot wait for the new one. One little suggestion, put the entire recipe on one page, and have a picture for each recipe on the page previous the recipe.

  4. If I might suggest, you should consider visiting Rancho la Puerta, in Tecate, Mexico before or after your trip. They have a lovely organic farm and cooking school!

  5. Sur le site de ACE c’est inscrit que c’est Leslie Shewring qui donnera l’atelier au mexique du 4 au 10 novembre 2014. Est-ce que c’est le même atelier? Et le lien dans votre article vers ACE ne fonctionne pas.

    Je suis un peu confuse. Merci de m’éclairer!

  6. Alexandra, malheureusement, j’ai du annuler ma participation a l’atelier ACE pour des raisons medicales. Je ne suis pas sure que ce soit le meme contenu car c’est Angela qui gere ACE, et qui le poursuit avec Leslie Shewring (que je ne connais pas). Je pense qu’il faut directement envoyer un message a Angela. Ce ne sera que partie remise pour moi l’annee prochaine. Bonne continuation.
