Take your food photography skills to the next level before eating and drinking your subject matter on this fun-filled, 3-hour food and photo tour with a small group in Santa Barbara. It’s a great way to explore this Southern California city’s artsy Funk Zone neighborhood while learning some new skills and enjoying great food.

Start your trip in the late morning from central location in the Funk Zone, a neighborhood within walking distance of the Santa Barbara port. This now-gentrifying area once housed warehouses and is slowly being converted into trend eateries, top-notch wine-tasting spots and hip art galleries. Travel on foot through this happening ‘hood, learning about Santa Barbara’s growing arts scene and city scene history as you walk. When you stumble upon an eye-catching mural or beautiful photo opportunity, listen to your knowledgeable guide as they share a few helpful photo-taking tips.

As you walk and snap, take a break to enjoy a small sampling of the Funk Zone’s range of tasty food and drink. You’ll hit three restaurants, two wine bars, a distillery and a microbrewery during your trip, enjoying a mix of the best gastronomic delights Santa Barbara has to offer. Best of all, your guide’s useful food photo tips will make sure you have the perfect image to share on social media or with friends and family back home.
