After you’ve asked me for months, I’m excited to share that my popular Lightroom presets are now finally available for Lightroom CC mobile, and the best part is that you won’t need to paid for an Adobe Creative Cloud or Lightroom subscription to access them! The only thing you need is the FREE Lightroom CC mobile app, which is available to both ios and android users. So now you can edit your food photos on your phone on the go. Plus, if you know me, you're probably aware that I like to go over and beyond for my tribe ;) and hence the bundle includes a few tiny little extras including a special introductory discount code (valid until 27/02/19 only!). Read on to find out more….

Honestly, they are sooo much fun, full of creativity and make me feel THAT much closer to YOU, my fellow food photography fanatics.

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.

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.
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.
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?
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 instagram, how 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.
