"As a new starter into the world of food photography, I have been looking for a professional guidance and feedback on my images. And by navigating through your website, I came across what I was looking for.
I found the workshop with Emma to be extremely informative and very productive. I believe her method of delivery was very easy and very helpful.  She looked at my images, revise the way I want to present them and how to create an impact through my style. It was a really positive meeting and outcome. I feel more confident to start promoting my images. She gave me good advise on what to focus and how to start owning my creative space. I am extremely glad that through the Foodphoto Festival Website I found this support and me the ability to meet Emma."

"I had the chance to meet Miss Emma Syrett in vejle food photography festival 2015 on the portfolio reviews and I was amazed by her communication skills and knowledge. so when I got informed about her seminar I booked straight away. The workshop was really interesting Emma showed us ways to choose the right pictures for our portfolio so that they ll add an impact and also create a unique style. We also worked on How to present ourselves in a meeting by doing some test meetings. Then we worked on a real brief. We had the opportunity to have a role play situation where we presented our work to an imaginary agency. We had to present our work in a way that we persuade the client that we are able for the work needed. Im very happy that I had the chance to meet Emma and I feel that her workshop has changed in a way the way I work."

“Thank you so much for the fantastic ‘Portfolios for Advertising’ workshop you gave at the Food Photo Festival in Vejle Denmark.  The immediate authority you claim over the subject matter is obvious.

I found the interactive setting extremely beneficial for exchange of information and discussing pertinent topics.  It allowed us to brainstorm presentation ideas together resulting in effective feedback on my own experiences and thoughts.

Your international exposure and experience was of great benefit when discussing our particular challenges in South Africa.  Your grasp of different market trends and styles was invaluable with regards to the topic of reaching a wider international market.  I would welcome any future workshops with you and your team at Creative Management."
