All You Need

And just like you, I started from ground zero — but with perseverance and a whole lot of trial and error, I managed to turn my love for photographing food into a full-blown career.

I've been in the food photography game for over a decade, working with my dream clients and having my photos featured in some pretty well-known foodie spots.

I help food photographers build the businesses they've always dreamed of (without sacrificing their magic) and make *real profit* doing what they love.

I had submitted a photo of blueberry pie which Lauren graciously critiqued for me, but I also emailed the photo to the company that makes the pie along with a pitch for me to refresh their social media photography. They responded, we had a call, and they hired me on the spot! So grateful to Food Photography Academy 🤗

I started my journey in the photography academy a few months ago and I am absolutely thrilled. All the courses are very comprehensive and interesting. The Composition Course helped me a lot to understand how to compose a photograph, where to place my Hero, how to create leading lines, shapes textures, etc. The Business Roadmap gave me all the elements to start my journey as a photographer thanks to the many suggestions starting from how to build the portfolio, how to calculate costs, prices and make proposals.
