ONLINE FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY AND FOOD STYLING COURSE 2019

ONLINE FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY AND FOOD STYLING COURSE 2019

After having so much fun teaching my first on-line interactive live food photography, food styling and visual story telling e-course I've decided to do it all again and welcome you to join me for my second LIVE interactive online food styling, food photography and visual story telling course!

To be honest I hadn't planned to launch the online food styling course again until the new year, but following the lovely feedback I received from the students who signed up for the course over the summer (see below) and my desire to make the course even better this time around, I can't wait to start teaching you all I know about food styling and food photography sooner rather than later. Want more info? Then please read on.

As you know from this blog posts here I’m a person who’s in the kitchen cooking pretty much daily and someone who works with food all the time as well. Hence a great kitchen work surface to me is essential; I’m really looking for something that’s durable, scratch resistant and pleasant on the eye too.

VEGAN TOMATO CURRY RECIPE + A COOKBOOK GIVEAWAY!

VEGAN TOMATO CURRY RECIPE + A COOKBOOK GIVEAWAY!

Hey you! Yes YOU!!! Did you know that before I started my blog, I’d read other people’s food blogs and drool over their photos and kinda wished they were my best friends so they could tell me where they learned to create such stunning images and delicious looking food. Do you do that too sometimes, you know, wish that the person whose content you love would know you’re there?

Kankana’s blog - Playful Cooking - was one of the blogs I read religiously before starting my own and Kankana was one of the people I wished were my blogging friend, meaning that it felt super special when she started following me back on social media and then, over the years actually really saw me and noticed me (blush). Now imagine my delight when Kankana asked me to review her debut cookbook THE TASTE OF EASTERN INDIA (FYI I nearly fell off my chair and of course said yes); I’m sharing the results of delving deeper into her cookbook here with you today :).

Now before I share the full recipe for this vegan tomato curry with you, want to know a little bit more about Kankana’s cookbook?

INTRODUCING THE EAT, CAPTURE, SHARE PODCAST FOR FOOD BLOGGERS

INTRODUCING THE EAT, CAPTURE, SHARE PODCAST FOR FOOD BLOGGERS

I have been teasing you for weeks (and loving it), but I finally wanted to share what’s been going on behind the scenes: I’ve starting my own PODCAST! It’s something I have been thinking about for so, so long and - with the support of my creative community, who also kept this secret safe and sound - as well as YOUR continued support and interest in me and my little plant-based food photography blog I finally felt brave enough to go for it.

VEGAN GREEN GODDESS SAUCE RECIPE IN COLLABORATION WITH GEM® AVOCADO

For me the best recipes are easy, vegan, quick and SO good, you can’t help but make them again and again and again! Today’s vegan green goddess sauce recipe, which I’ve developed in collaboration with GEM® Avocado, fits this criteria perfectly. It’s the kinda, throw-it-together-last-minute-sauce that ALWAYS comes out tasting delicious, even if you get a few of the measurements wrong, swap one herb for another, or add some extra pepper for good measure. It’s not precious or precise, though I’ve written it down in the best version that I know so that you can make the green goddess sauce, tinker with it and then make it even better ;).

VEGAN APPLE MUESLI MUFFINS IN COLLABORATION WITH DEEMUESLI

When there is so much of everything already on the food market, how do you stand out? By making something so delicious and nourishing that everyone takes note! That’s exactly what the Belgium-based wife and husband team behind new muesli brand DEEMUESLI did when they came up with their two scrumptious muesli flavours. Tired of never finding organic, sugar-free, wheat-free muesli that was as delicious as it was filling, the couple took matters into their own hands and developed THE ultimate muesli worth waking up for.

WHAT HAPPENS AT A FOOD STYLING AND FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP?

WHAT HAPPENS AT A FOOD STYLING AND FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP?

After months of talking about it and planning like crazy behind the scenes the 2-day food styling and food photography workshop I ran with Aimee from Twigg Studios PLUS the 1-day small business mastermind I facilitated with Sorrel Roberts came and went in a flash. It was the most international group of eager food photography students and small business owners yet - with attendees coming to my cosy London studio from Slovakia, Dubai, Morocco, Denmark, Canada and the USA as well as good old London ;). How cool is that?!? :) To be honest, I could not have asked for a better group of fellow creatives and food lovers to hang out with over those three days. Want to see what happened over the course of the workshop?

HOW MUCH SHOULD AN INSTAGRAM CONTENT CREATOR EARN? + SAVEUR COUNT DOWN PART 3

NOTE: This blog post is part 22 of my INSTAGRAM SERIES - content all about helping YOU manage your way around instagram. In the INSTAGRAM SERIES I've touched on subjects such as how to get paid for posting content on instagramhow the algorithms really work and is your instagram account worth following. Just click here to find all the other parts in the series. Now on with today's controversial (?) post...

How much should an instagram influencer slash content creator earn? How much should we charge for our work as photographers, food writers, stylists? It's a question I get asked quite a lot and one that recently came up inside my creative community. I've written about the topic before, more broadly, but that blog post feels like ages ago and hence a few years older and wiser, I thought I'd tackle the question again on instagram and here on my blog AKA my home turf.
