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 🤗

FPA has been an essential resource in the development of my work creatively, and my business. The monthly feedback sessions in particular are not to be missed. I can now pursue high-end restaurants and commercial food product clients with confidence and success. FPA helped me develop techniques, understand what equipment I need and how to use it, and made me tackle my marketing needs head-on. 

“I can now pursue high-end clients with confidence!”

Lorenzo Tonti

I am a detail oriented learner who needs all the steps to piece together a big picture; and her classes go from setup to export, which was perfect for me! She is a wonderful teacher and really made it easy for me to understand the “why” of it all. The FPA helped me move from parroting "how to" steps to coming up with and creatively executing my own ideas and workflows. I stand by the academy 100% and encourage anyone who is feeling a little lost to choose a membership here over any of the other courses out there!”

“choose a membership here over any of the other courses out there!”

Joining Food Photography Academy was one of the best investments I have made in my food photography journey. The Composition and Styling lessons were outstanding. I think that the most unique aspect of the Academy are the monthly live feedback calls. It is the only online course I know of that offers feedback on your work. She is a skilled teacher, and [as I] progressed, the advice became more detailed and really helped me to develop my skills and confidence level.

Heck yes! I'm ready To transform my food photography business!

So, are you ready to kickstart this exciting food journey with Food Photography Academy? Because I can't wait to welcome you in!

I totally believe that everyone with a camera and a love for food can create stunning food photos. And through this course, I want to help you find your unique style and elevate your photos from good to blimmin’ great.

And that's exactly why I created Food Photography Academy. It's not just a course; it's a community, a space where photographers like you and me can learn and grow together.

My debut book "The Complete Guide to Food Photography," hit the shelves in 2022, and I’ve helped thousands of food photographers improve their skills and start their dream business.

Hi, I'm Lauren, 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. And just like you, I started from ground zero — unsure and questioning if my photos were any good. 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.

Hey, I’m Lauren, Your New Photography Coach

Rahmat landed a new client

I landed a client shortly after I re-drafted my old template

An extremely helpful section for me was drafting client proposals. I used this section to draft a template proposal and this helped me land a client shortly after I re-drafted my old template.

Alessandra has been contacted by agencies

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, agencies have contacted me and I hope to close a contract shortly.

Emma had her first paid shoot

I have a greater eye for a good food photo

Lauren has taught me how Capture One can make my food photography more professional and I have a greater eye for a good food photo! I love that you can share your work in the groups for feedback, which gave me some really useful insights to work with. I have also had my first paid food photography photoshoot, so thank you Lauren!

And you don’t need to just take my word for the transformation this can create… here’s what students have to say: 



money back 

Try My Program for 30 60 days. Get your money back if it didn’t serve you.

And just in case you're feeling a tad nervous - remember, joining the Food Photography Academy is risk-free! You've got a 30-day "No Worries Guarantee" to back you up.

If you're wondering whether this is the right fit for you, I want you to dive into the Academy with total confidence and zero stress.

Why? Because I'm convinced that you'll fall in love with the detailed tutorials, hands-on experiences, and our tight-knit community. That's why I give you a full 30 days to explore every nook and cranny of the Academy. And if it doesn't feel right for whatever reason, I'll refund your money.

So, there's absolutely no risk. All you stand to gain is a wealth of knowledge, a boost in your creative confidence, and a friendly community of fellow food photographers.


If you’ve scrolled this far you might be wondering 'Can an online course genuinely help me level up my food photography game as much as an in-person workshop would?' - let’s dive into this!

I truly believe that when it comes to learning, it's not always about where you are physically, it's about the quality of instruction and the level of feedback.

It's completely normal to feel a bit iffy about online learning, especially for something as hands-on as photography. But consider this:

Online courses allow you the freedom to learn at your pace, on your schedule. You can pause, rewind, and replay lessons as often as you want. Plus, with Food Photography Academy, you're not missing out on personal feedback — we have regular live feedback sessions to ensure you're on the right track!

Remember, it's not so much about where you learn, but what you learn, how you apply it, and the feedback you receive.

Here's the real deal — plenty of my students have dramatically improved their food photography skills after engaging with this course and the valuable feedback that comes with it.

So, imagine the version of you who's a confident and skilled food photographer. What choice would you make right now?


The Academy is your perfect fit if:

You know it's time to move away from imitating others and truly uncover your unique style, the secret sauce that will set you apart in the exciting world of food photography

You Aren't looking to run a food photography business

You don't want to learn the technical side of photography

It's probably *not* for you if...

You're not willing to do the work

You'd love a solution that offers clear and in-depth tutorials, live feedback to keep you accountable, and a supportive community, all without breaking the bank

You've grown tired of impersonal online courses that overpromise and underdeliver. You're yearning for an approach that skillfully blends clear, comprehensive tutorials with real-time feedback and an encouraging community of like-minded individuals.
