Food is inherently a visual subject – we all know we eat with our eyes first! This workshop is designed to share with you a formula for impactful storytelling. Join presenter Lori McCarthy and photographer Marsha Tulk in this 2-hour workshop and learn what it takes to share your passion through food. This workshop will focus on storytelling through photography for the Instagram platform.

Lori McCarthy is dedicated to the cultural foods of Newfoundland and Labrador through her company Cod Sounds and the Livyers Cultural Alliance. Lori has been featured on CNN Travel – Explore Parts Unknown – Ultimate Traveler, National Geographic, National Post and Canadian Geographic Travel. She grew up watching her mother make bread, pick berries, and preparing and preserving wild foods, and her father’s skills as a hunter and fisherman. She is proud to keep those traditions alive.

Marsha Tulk grew up on the west coast of the island where being active in the outdoors was “normal”. A family boil up on a beach or out in the woods while camping was a common thing. Food was homemade and creative. Her love of photography started at a young age when she found her grandfather’s darkroom in the attic of the family’s 100 year old home. Marsha completed a Fine Arts Degree in Visual Art majoring in Photography and an Education Degree and began teaching junior high and high school visual art. After the birth of her first son she stayed home full time. And since that time she has never given up creating. Traditional crafts and food has always been of interest to her. At present she is curating and digitizing the hundreds of negatives her grandfather took living in Newfoundland during the 1940s to 1960s. She also continues crafting time-honoured items like the Newfoundland vamp and making a consistent supply of Cod Sounds own Jigger slippers. It only seemed natural that creating and photographing traditional food would be the next step.
