Sea Salt and Smoke:

an adventurous photography workshop on Guemes Island hosted by Drifters Fish & Kimberley Hasselbrink. 

Experience the change of seasons in the Pacific Northwest and the abundance of fall flavors. We’ll be enjoying ingredients from local farmers, fishermen, and foragers as we gather and feast together over the weekend.


Storytelling Through Food

We’ll spend the weekend digging into visual storytelling through the lens of food. You’ll have an opportunity to learn about the abundant fall harvest of the Pacific Northwest while capturing all of the details that bring food to life: the colors, composition, styling, the raw ingredients and the chefs and makers who bring the ingredients to our table
