Intro to Styling Workshop at The Ames Studio
Whether you're looking to get your start as a Stylist, or are hoping to fine tune some existing skills, this afternoon workshop will fuel your creativity and allow for confidence building and professional development!
Suzanne will discuss the key components of styling for advertising, which can be applied to small local businesses creating their own imagery or to stylists working on large commercial productions.
Under the umbrella of "Stylist" there are many subcategories; This workshop will focus on tabletop styling for product, and propping food images. Some topics will include developing a critical eye, best tools and tricks for styling, general composition, prop shopping and following your creative instinct. You'll have the opportunity to flex your creative muscles and create your own styled set with plenty of product, props and food available for you to work with. During this time, Suzanne will be available to give feedback and suggestions to help you hone your skills.
The afternoon is available to a small group to maximize time for asking questions and getting the attention you need throughout our time together. We'll have 4 hours of workshop time, with a brief break for lunch.
This workshop does not include a photography portion, but we encourage you to bring a camera or your phone to capture your creations throughout the day.

Save Your Spot
I'm a Photo and Video Stylist working in both the commercial and editorial sectors
of advertising throughout New England.
My experience began in 2015 by being signed at a representative agency in Boston. Soon after, in early 2016, I was hired as the in-house stylist for Stonewall Kitchen Family of Brands. I worked there exclusively until mid 2019 when I chose to become a freelance stylist.
I love meeting new people and sharing what I can to help others on their journey, the same way I was so generously mentored as I entered the world of styling for large (and small) scale productions!
A sample of the clients I've worked with:
Truly Hard Seltzer
The Boston Globe
The New England Patriots
Roche Bros Supermarkets
