Salt + Smoke:

a food photography workshop celebrating Pacific Northwest harvest 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 alongside the chefs and makers who bring the ingredients to our table. With award-winning photographer Kimberley Hasselbrink, you’ll learn how to create a narrative around food and place by spending time with the people who make the food, and then learn how to capture that food, from raw ingredients to finished dishes. Throughout the weekend, there’ll be conversations about color, composition, and lighting, as well as portraiture, bringing images to life with people, and capturing motion.
