Photography course snapshot

This innovative new photography course combines Aspire’s two passions - photography and food. It’s your opportunity to learn the true art of breadmaking from award winning baker Aidan Monks, widely acknowledged as one of the UK’s best bakers, who will share his skill and love for his work, and reveal the secrets behind making beautiful bread. Then, you’ll capture wonderful images of your creations in evocative shoots styled the way that only Aspire know how.

After an introductory coffee, you’ll learn the essentials of bread making and enjoy a mouthwatering bakery demonstration. Then, it’s time to get hands-on, using Gilchesters organic flour from the North East of England to make something of your own. Aidan will guide you through every aspect of making a starter, measuring ingredients and moulding bread to perfection. A delicious lunch is included, packed - as you’d expect - with artisan breads and treats.

Throughout this intimate, fun course, you’ll be encouraged to take pictures with whatever camera you have with you. It could be a full DSLR, a compact, or your smartphone - if it can take pictures, it’ll be perfect (Aspire is a photography training school, after all).

This is a day to indulge, to enjoy the pleasure of making bread, to have fun taking pictures, and to gather new inspiration for your own work. Whatever level of photography or breadmaking skill you may or may not have, you’re sure to be inspired!
