Food Photography and Writing Workshop [ONE SPOT LEFT!]
Tas Otel
Alcati, Turkey


Sharpen your photography skills with food and travel photographer David Hagerman, whose clients include Saveur and The New York Times. Improve your ability to write compelling stories, learn what’s new in food writing, and enjoy a private consultation with me. And hear from Robyn Eckhardt, author of the award-winning Eating Asia food blog and travel writer for such publications as The New York Times and Wall Street Journal Asia, on how to find food stories when you travel. She and Dave are also the authors of a forthcoming Turkey cookbook. They’ll be your hosts as you enjoy a 120-year old stone house, feast on Turkish food, visit the market and walk to cafes, shops and restaurants on this gorgeous town on the Aegean. Bring a non-participating partner to share the room and join in meals and activities.
