Welcome to the fast-track to getting started in photography! This course is designed to take you through all of the important foundations of food photography in an easy-to-follow format.  

We start from the very beginning, making sure you know how to navigate your camera, important terms, how to find the best place to shoot for optimal lighting, how to set a stellar foundation in editing with Adobe Lightroom, and plenty of real-life demonstrations of different styles and techniques.  

Plus, the course comes with a community of food photographers (in our own private space, not on Facebook). It's a place to share your work, make friends and get plenty of support from your instructor. 

Capture awesome images on purpose

Many of us spent far too long guessing at camera settings, hoping for good lighting, and not feeling totally in control of the images coming out of our cameras.  Here's your opportunity to skip the trial and error and start feeling proud of your photos.
