The Style Tales




Sunday 10th November, 2019, 10:30am - 4:30pm
Location: Squirrel Cafe (Small Acorns Design Store), 4 Blair Street, Wellington CBD.

You’re invited to spend a day immersed in the art of food and product styling and photography, learning the fundamentals as well as a peek into some advanced techniques. Whether you're a seasoned foodie, a home cook, photographer, blogger, Instagrammer, content creator, you want to write a cook book, or you simply want to be able to take amazing photos of food or products, we have a wonderful workshop planned in the beautiful, light filled space that is Squirrel Cafe. You will not only learn about my own styling process and photography techniques, you will also have the chance to set up and photograph your own scenes and create your own magical shots….



Let me elevate your brand, and tell your unique story through beautiful imagery.

We live in a world SATURATED with visuals. One that demands we stand out from the crowd. But standing out doesn’t necessarily mean louder or brighter or bolder. It also doesn’t mean stock standard product photography….

You want captivating images that tell a story.

I’ll embrace your brand aesthetic and serve you up a visual feast that will leave you and your customers wanting.

Creating delicious brand stories


So much more than just a photo of food…

“We commissioned Christall for an ice cream shoot recently, and I was completely blown away with how amazing the results were! The images Christall delivered were more that we could have hoped for – absolutely stunning and could be from the pages of a world class cuisine magazine. She totally nailed the brief, and went over and above to tell the story of our brand. 

Not only was her work incredibly outstanding, but Christall was an absolute pleasure to work with. Nothing was a problem, and I really felt like we were in capable hands. She made the entire process from brief to delivery so easy!”

Master the art of visual storytelling, using the perfect blend of narrative, composition and light. 

“A few months ago my daughter and I made the drive to Feilding to attend a food styling workshop hosted by Christall. Honestly, I can say hands down that it was one of the best Sunday afternoons I’ve had in the longest time. I learnt SO much, from composition, how to use props to your best advantage, and the ALL important use of light which can make or break an image. I couldn’t recommend these workshops enough!”
