4-Week Group Prop Styling Class
"As an artist and Etsy shop owner, I wanted to improve my skills in presenting my products in a way that told a story to engage on social media. By the end of the class, I created beautiful images to post on my site and across social platforms. I truly loved this class and would highly recommend it to all Etsy shop owners and entrepreneurs!"

Experience the prop stylist life with likeminded creatives. In a small group setting over the course of four consecutive weeks, (either Fridays or Saturdays), we'll cover everything you need to know about both the business and creative side of prop styling. We'll explore the ins and outs of mastering composition, assembling the perfect color palette, building project mood boards, sourcing props, organizing shoot logistics, putting together the essential styling kit, and creating photo-worthy vignettes. Each week will feature hands-on exercises and both group and individual instruction, and will prepare students for the last session, which will focus on a final still life project that you will produce, style, and shoot.
In addition to the stylistic and logistical elements of prop styling, we'll have inspiring discussions about tapping into your creative self, using your unique voice to deliver work that wows clients and delivers on their wants and needs, and self-promoting your work to grow your business.
This class is best suited for aspiring stylists, chefs, makers, photographers, social media strategists, Instagrammers, and creatives of all types looking to develop an eye for styling, and makers seeking to create beautiful product imagery that sells. No professional photography experience is necessary, but please come prepared with your camera or iPhone. Spending on additional props and materials outside of my personal collection is suggested but not required.
