The wait is over and I am delighted to finally be able to invite you to register for my online food photography, food styling and visual story telling course! Unlike most other online food photography and food styling workshops, this e-course is LIVE so that I can be there with you and support you with your learning every step along the way!
The Spring and Autumn online food styling courses completely sold out; this meant I had the chance to work with some wonderful students - complete beginners as well as those with some solid experience under their belt. Now I’m excited to work super closely with another small, but mighty student group this winter and I’d love that to include YOU.
My aim is to give you the knowledge and confidence to really start 2019 with a good understanding of how to take the food shots you want and create a visually recognisable style! Following the lovely feedback from previous students, I’d love to share this season’s lesson outline below, so if you’re curious to find out more, if you wish to arrange a discovery call or want to book your spot, then please do read on :).

WHAT MAKES THIS FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY AND FOOD STYLING COURSE DIFFERENT?
I will be there LIVE online with you and your fellow students to answer your questions, guide your learning, show you how to style and shoot so that you can learn in real time with me there for you virtually. This way I get to respond to your needs in the moment allowing you to develop your skills and build your confidence as if you were with me in my little London studio. You also get a written lesson guide for each class so you can digest the information after the lesson ends.
There are lots of pre-recorded food styling courses but none where you get to learn alongside your teacher and fellow students in a small group setting, so don't miss out.
WHY SHOULD I STUDY WITH YOU?
I have been a teacher in one capacity or another for 25 years!
I have taught food photography to well over 100 students ranging from complete beginners and intermediate students in person and virtually, 1-2-1, in small groups and in large group settings. You can read my testimonials here.
I teach from the heart with so much passion because I'm keen for you to learn and reach your full creative potential
I know exactly how it feels not to get the food photography images you want. It's because I've gone through this creative struggle myself that I've gained a natural ability to explain food photography and styling in a way that I KNOW you'll understand no matter where you are at in your learning process
I work professionally as a food photographer, food stylist and prop stylist.
Still not sure? Then I advise you tune into my podcast to get a really good sense of who I am and whether you like my style.
WHAT IF I MISS A SESSION?
The best thing to do is to block the teaching dates out in your diary. However, I will record each lesson; you will have 1 year unlimited access to the classes. In addition you get a written lesson plan with each class to further help your learning before, during and after our online class.
DO I NEED A DSLR TO PARTICIPATE?
No, you can use a point and shoot, mirrorless camera, an iphone camera or anything else you've got to hand. However you'll get the most out of this course if you have a DSLR.
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO COMPLETE THIS COURSE?
You need an excellent internet connection and a computer! Apart from that for the lesson on editing, it's helpful that you have Photoshop and/or Lightroom.
IS THIS COURSE A LOT OF WORK?
The course is what you make of it. If you are really committed to hone your craft and up your game, the more time you invest in the learning process and complete your homework, the more you will get out of it. That's not to say there's anything wrong with doing the LIVE lessons and leaving the homework completion for a later time/date. It's up to you.
WHEN DOES REGISTRATION CLOSE?
Monday, February 4th at midnight GMT.
UPDATE: Only 2 spots remain!
