Extra Shot: a Coffee Photography Class with Dolcezza

Extra Shot: a Coffee Photography Class with Dolcezza

Dolcezza Gelato Factory & Coffee Lab (map)

Dim Sum has been lucky enough to work with Dolcezza for several years (read: we're always caffeinated). This means we've got the knowledge of some incredible baristas behind us. When we photograph coffee, when we look for photographers to collaborate with, or even when we're scrolling for photos to re-gram, we're always looking for strong representations of our spaces, and our baristas' hard work and talent. Now it's time to impart some of that knowledge to you! 

This workshop is for food, lifestyle, and fashion photographers who regularly shoot in cafes. You'll get a barista's perspective and a brand manager's guidance to strengthen your photos and increase your chances of brand collaboration. Plus, this class takes place in the Dolcezza Gelato Factory and Coffee Lab, which is full of natural light and stunning textures.

Candidly is a panel discussion series brought to you by Dim Sum Media and Locale Workspace. With Candidly, we aim to unite DC's small business owners and entrepreneurs through shared experiences and issues. Each event will cover a different topic. When we can speak candidly together, we work and live better.

For the second event in this series, we're taking on knowing your worth and getting paid. In this creative gig economy, we're all competing for contracts and projects as freelancers, writers, photographers, designers, developers, performers, and artists. It's especially easy to get undercut by newbies who will work for free or cheap for exposure. This panel will cover how to set a value for your work, negotiate a rate, and get paid.
