In the highly competitive market of food and beverage photography, photographers must meet the needs of their clients across multiple levels, including that of providing imagery that is not only creative, but that also promote the brand and brand message.
We will demystify the complexities of building high-end beverage images that also embrace the marketing and social cues needed to effectively communicate a “brands” message. Participants will learn the foundations and industry-level understandings of how high-quality beverage images adhere to the important tenets of creativity and message.
