Food Photography & Styling Online Classes

Learn how to take beautiful images

Are you stuck on "auto" with your camera?

I know where you are coming from because I was in the exact same place several years ago. Creating mouthwatering food images for your blog, Instagram, Pinterest or your website or portfolio have become such a vital aspect of your online work.

As a blogger and food photographer for over 15 years I learnt so much each step. Knowing many of the difficulties you face I want to help you find confidence in yourself and your camera to create inspiring and creative food images.

My mentoring courses are a great way to "unstick" yourself and advance your skills further. A very popular mentoring course is The Art of Food Photography an online coaching tailored to meet the needs of my individual students, not the masses. 7 modules 1x week for 2 to 3 hours, including homework assignments. We meet every week online and I guide you 1-to-1 or in a small group of 4 on everything you need to know about making a masterpiece out of your food photos. As your coach, I will mentor you personally, give assignments, live demos and valuable feedback. The best part is if you have questions - you can just ask me! I am here each step of the way.

Are you questioning if photography is still a sustainable business? Let me boost your motivation here ... YES! Taking good food images will always ensure you and your photography business a podium place with your clients! Photos have not lost their relevance! Good photos are the cornerstone of visual communication and provide the foundation for your business.

Remember that our business is not only made up of what happens on social media. Those wise words "do not put all your eggs in one basket" are relevant for any successful business. As photographers, we need to be able to take powerful images for other outlets. Magazines, cookbooks, websites, stock images, and exclusive collaborations are examples of where I have been able to build my photography business.
