When in Manila and very curious to learn about the art of FOOD STYLING and Food Photography, brace yourself to what me and my photo buddy Frank are about to show you! It was indeed a very interesting and memorable weekend for both of us and I’m sure you’ll find it equally amazing as well!
What is FOOD STYLING anyway? It is the art of presenting food for any kind of media whether commercial or photography!
So if you’re into culinary, a food blogger or a passionate photographer like us who aim to shoot professional quality food shots, then we highly recommend you enroll at 50 Feasts!
50 Feasts is the only photography education place in the Philippines that specializes in food photography and styling!
At last! A Food Photography school right here in Manila!
I’m so glad that the guys from PhotoKitchen finally decided to offer these classes for enthusiasts like us!
Frank and I were just sooooo captivated by their blog that we became instant fans! The PhotoKitchen team is composed of a very talented trio (Mylene Chung, Dwight Co & Katherine Jao), each pouring their hearts and talents in producing world class stunning food photos!
I believe that these brilliant young people truly deserve support! Our country needs more people like them! Seriously!
Frank and I are very much influenced by them so it was truly an honor to finally meet our “idols” in the flesh! We’re so fascinated by Mylene’s shots and Kat’s highly artistic creations! yeeeeyy!!!

On a personal note, I may say that this is one of the most interesting classes I’ve attended! Kat Jao (our teacher) was very hands on to ensure that each one of us fully understood every step.We sure had so much fun! Their studio looked very conducive for learning and creating art! It had lots and lots of natural light so it was such a delight to click and click our shutters! Mylene took photos of our masterpieces after class and I can’t wait to see them! We find the Food Styling class to be very magical! I felt like I was in a sorcery class at Hogwart’s!! ahahahaha It was such an honor to meet and get to know them! It was indeed one of the best weekends we’ve ever had!
