Learn Flash Without The Hassle

You love to capture images of food? Awesome! Artificial light enables you to do what you love and create consistent, quality images anywhere, anytime. But, getting started with artificial light, and especially flash, can feel daunting. What gear do I need? What do all the settings mean? How do I position the light so that it looks natural? I want to help you cut through the confusion and not just learn how to use your flash gear, but all of the principles in play so that no matter the situation, you can create the images you have in your head. In Flash for Food Photography, I'll walk you step-by-step through the entire process of getting started with flash-based lighting. With high-quality videos (that are concise and to-the-point) including lots of hands-on demonstrations, you'll be creating natural looking food images faster than you would have thought possible. Create the images you've imagined today.

Hi, I'm Joanie Simon

I'm a professional food photographer. Here's how I can help you.

Through my photography journey I've made every mistake in the book. I've applied that learning, grown and now share what I know with food photographers on my YouTube channel, The Bite Shot. 

But, I wanted a way to go deeper with those who really wanted to understand flash photography.

I know that incorporating flash was one of the biggest leaps in my professional development. It has been incredibly rewarding to teach hundreds of other food photographers how to make the leap to flash without the confusion that comes from trying to learn on your own.
