    Foodtography School introduced me to what food photography really was. Before, I was just randomly taking pictures of food. I learned composition, styling, and editing. All the fundamentals needed to begin my amazing photography journey.

    This course was an absolute turning point in my food photography career. I feel more confident pitching myself to clients. I've already realized over 5X return on my course investment.

    I'm now working full time as a food photographer. I used to have to approach brands, but now they find me! I get so many inquiries that I now I can work with brands that I truly love. I'm able to charge 2-3X more than what I initially charged and can demand more long-term contracts.
  • @mangioquindisono says...

    I’ve worked with several Italian web agencies in the last two years, and I’ve been confident enough to raise my prices TWICE in 2020. I’ve landed paid sponsorship with Crockpot Italia, Innocent Italia, two well known Italian wineries, and several other brands, even if I’ve just reached 15k followers.
  • @breakfastnbowls says…

    When I started food photography in 2017, I believed that I could progress alone until I reached the level of those food photographers I admire. Yes, I could see a little progress during the year, but nothing compares to the real leap forward after having decided to take Foodtography School⁣. I had no idea where it was going to take me, but I knew I wanted to explore it, to see how far I could go. It is thanks to Foodtography School that today I made my passion my job!
  • @alicepages says…

    Improving my photography skills with Foodtography School was one of the best decisions I ever made. As the quality of my Instagram and portfolio increased, brands started to contact me for paid content. Quickly I signed my first contract and was featured in some international magazines!
  • @wild.thistle.kitchen says

    I'm just so thankful I decided to take Foodtography. It truly opened up a whole new world for me and it has been such a blast being a real contender in this food photography arena. And I am SO EXCITED for the updated 2021 material! It was already awesome so I just can't wait to see what's new!!

FAQ
Hi, I have a Question…
  • + - Do I get lifetime access to Foodtography School?
    Yes! This course is designed with a 7-week format in mind, but we understand each student learns at their own pace. You can always come back to the material weeks or months later.
  • + - What if I can't take this course immediately?
    That’s OK! We understand each student learns at their own pace. You can always come back to the material weeks or months later, since you do receive lifetime access to the material.
  • + - Can I take this course with my smartphone?
    Yes! We highly recommend a DSLR camera to take this course. With that said, we have had students who were very interested and serious about developing their food photography skills purchase the course and have success applying the principles of food photography with their smartphone.
  • + - Do I get access to the entire course at once?
    You will get access to all 10 units of this course at one time however, we suggest taking one unit per week.
  • + - How is the new Foodtography School different from the older version?
    We originally published Foodtography School in 2018, and since then have had the joy of teaching over 3,700 students in this course alone! But we felt like it was time for an upgrade, so we completely re-vamped the course, deconstructing the original lectures, re-conceptualizing them, and re-recording them to fit into this fast-changing arena! In addition, we've expanded the course from 4 units to 7 units, have double the content, 3 brand new styling sessions, a fully editable PDF workbook to help you learn as you go, and closed captions on every video. We've been working on it for a long time, and we're SO EXCITED ABOUT IT!!! If you are a former Foodtography School course student (June 2018 onward), you automatically get upgraded to this new course as part of our lifetime update promise.
  • + - How is the Foodtography School different from Foodtography Bootcamp?
    In 2017, members of the Foodtography School bootcamp received access to, essentially, what was “Foodtography School in the making.” The material inside Foodtography School is different than what was in bootcamp. As a bootcamp student, you do qualify for an existing discount! Please email us [email protected] with questions.
  • + - How is Foodtography School different from Restaurant School?
    Foodtography School and Restaurant Foodtography School are the perfect compliment! We offer a bundle discount when purchased together, so if you’re considering doing both, do it! You’ll never receive a bigger discount on our courses. The material covered and the curriculum design is very different for each course. Foodtography School is going to teach you the basics of good food photography composition, editing, lighting, and how to find your personal style. Restaurant Foodtography School is much more niche; it’s all about applying all those things specifically to the restaurant space. Get the bundle deal here!
  • + - How is Foodtography School different from The Style/Edit?
    The content is COMPLETELY 100% different in each course. The Style/Edit is exactly that - it focuses on styling sessions and editing sessions. Foodtography School goes way more in-depth into the concepts of composition, light, social media, and branding. It really just depends on which one you want to dive into FIRST ;) We highly recommend both.

BEFORE YOU GO…

Hey, Food Photographer!

I remember way back when I first started my food photography journey — I kept searching for someone to help me improve both my photography AND my business, but unfortunately, that just wasn’t a *thing* yet. I had to figure it all out on my own, and it was really exhausting…I would have given SO MUCH just to have a one-stop shop that would teach me what I really needed to know.

That’s why I created this course: so you don’t have to waste time figuring your sh*t out, and instead, you can spend your time actually doing the work you love and getting paid for it.

I know it can be hard to take the plunge — whether it’s a fear of failure, fear of wasting money, or something else. But I know that you can do this.

I am rooting for you BIG TIME, and I’m so excited to welcome you to the Foodtography School community.

Love and brownies,
Sarah
