Mylene has been in the food photography industry for the past 9 years. She was one of the first photographers in the Philippines who specialised in the food genre. She has worked with some of the biggest food companies in the country such as Coca-cola, Nestle, Maggi, Unilever, Shangri La Hotel, Marco Polo, Lady’s Choice, Quaker Oats, Magnolia, and Rustan’s Super Market among others. Today she has expanded Photokitchen to a full team of 8 people.
Mylene’s style of teaching is very hands-on as she believes that practice is key to learning— which was the same way she learned the craft back when she was only starting out in the industry. You can expect a lot of practical exercises and case studies in her class.
I loved how well-thought-out everything was – from the way Mye broke down complicated concepts to make them easier to understand, to the fun and unique hands-on exercises we had, and the general pace of the whole workshop. The whole team was also extremely generous in sharing their knowledge with us and answering our many questions even when they weren't related to the lessons. Though I initially had reservations on the cost of the 2-day workshop, I can now definitely say it was worth every cent. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in food photography!

The Photokitchen Food Photography and Prop Styling Workshop is one of the best food photography workshops I have attended. It may seem expensive compared to other food photography workshops being offered, but it was definitely worth it. They offer a different approach to food photography which is more practical and hands-on. The best part for me was how open they were to answering our questions and sharing their experiences in the field. Definitely a must take class for those interested or have just gotten into food photography; maybe even those who see themselves as experienced food photographers.

The workshop was very informative! I liked how the lessons were put together, since there was a good mix of theoretical information and practical exercises provided. So you really got to put what you just learned into practice. It was amazing getting to work with the sheer amount of props available in the studio. A+, will definitely sign up again for any future sessions.

Mylene and the Photokitchen team were generous with their time, knowledge and experience. I loved that the class was mostly a hands-on experience. I'd definitely recommend it for photographers who want to get into food photography."
Thanks for the great weekend! It was such a great experience as you can probably tell from the testimonial. If Photokitchen is ever looking for people, please consider me willing.

I had a blast this past weekend! Never knew workshops could be that fun! Honestly, it was the first photography related workshop I ever attended! As for the class, a great step forward for beginners, and a more in depth understanding for us with little experience in basic food photography and styling. I wished this class happened when I was still starting out! Nevertheless, still a ton of things I learned through the course of one weekend and more to learn along the way.
— Jan Galang
The lectures and the exercises comprehensively tackled the fundamentals of food photography. All this, plus Photokitchen's well-equipped studio made the whole workshop sulit and so much more. Super grateful to the whole Photokitchen team!

Photokitchen managed to teach and impart invaluable tips for both beginners and more experienced food photographers. I really appreciated the challenging exercises that followed classroom discussions, which allowed us to apply the lessons immediately – making comprehension easier and much more fun. Overall, I started the class quite intimidated by photography technicalities, and I left the class more able, confident and excited about food photography and styling.
— Shen Mascarinas
The class was fun and the exercises were challenging. It made me realize that taking photos and prop styling really go hand in hand and it is something that you need to master if you really want a career in food photography. I also liked the fact that Mylene was always ready to answer questions and the whole team was always ready to help and guide us in every challenge.
— Bridgette Jose
The Photokitchen team did a fantastic job in curating a very thorough crash course on food photography. The workshop touched on the basics and gradually moved on to technical tips and tricks with lots of exercises along the way. Would recommend it to anyone who’s interested in food/photography/food photography. More please!
— Noni Devora
I had a wonderful time with you guys last weekend. You have shared a lot of input on how to make food look so delectable in pictures. Your teaching method is more effective compared to just watching a photographer show how he does things. I have learned so much especially during the hands on activities and case studies, where I was able to style my assigned pastry. There is a sense of fulfillment when we do it on our own. Hope you come up with more workshops on food photography. Thank you and more power.
