We’ve renovated! Our signature course is back, and it’s better than ever.

We founded Foodtography School because we believe food photography is equal parts skill and business. And now we’re bringing you our updated course with double the content, totally new features, and more bonuses than ever before!

Because taking mediocre photos will only get you so far. If you want to turn food photography into your career, you’ve gotta snap sensational pics and know how to market yourself to potential clients.

The money is there, you just need to know how to create content that demands it.

WHO THIS COURSE IS FOR

Does this sound like you?

  • YOU CAN RECOGNIZE BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS...YOU JUST CAN'T GET YOURS TO LOOK THAT GOOD
    In this course, you’ll study classical art techniques like the rule of thirds, textural layering, and implied movement in order to energize your compositions and speed up your shooting process.
  • YOU'VE BEEN PLAYING THE IG GAME, BUT YOUR FOLLOWING STAYS THE SAME
    We get it, it's so frustrating! That's why we've dedicated an entire unit to social media, including how often you should be posting, how to best engage with your audience and add value to their lives, and how to utilize your analytics to inform what you should be posting!
  • YOU DREAM OF WORKING WITH BRANDS, BUT HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO REACH OUT TO THEM
    Foodtography School will teach you how to market your photos and yourself, reach out to brands, and negotiate with ease so you can turn your passion into a serious profit.

Picture this…

In just a few short weeks, you’ll be snapping balanced photos with implied movement, creating harmonious color stories, editing like a wiz, and reaching out to brands like it’s your job — because it will be!

  • @inthemidnightkitchen says...

    I signed up for Foodtography School because I wanted to take my photography more seriously, and that meant understanding light and composition better, as well as to level up on editing. I also needed more insight into the business side of everything, and this course showed the many ways that you can monetize this line work and navigate your craft through this industry.
  • @rosalynndaniels says...

    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.
  • @healthylittlevittles says...

    I came into Foodtography School with a little bit of precious knowledge in photography in general, but I loved that FS was focused solely on what I wanted to work on perfecting... food photography! Not only did it do that but perhaps the most helpful thing I learned from the program was learning how to actually make money with food photography and blogging, how to talk to brands, and turn my hobby into a career!
  • @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!!

Picture this (…get it?)

    Ari L. — @wellseasonedstudio

  • "This course was absolutely invaluable and for a beginner who didn't know how to even start, this really made sense as an investment (although at the time of purchasing I didn't know 100% that I'd make the $ back within a year!)."


    Shilpa I. — @shilpaiyereats

  • “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.”

    Monique — @peaches2peaches

  • "The first food photography course I ever took was Foodtography School, and soon after I started to see the progression. Now, after only 9 months I look back and see how my photos looked like before and I can really say I'm proud of how much my skills grew and how far I've come."

    Mihaela - @mihaela_biteitquick

  • "Since enrolling in Foodtography School I have landed food photography job with local brands, been offered a long term contract to do recipe development and photography for a blogger with over 2 million followers, worked with Sam's Club, and have been offered a long term contract as a contributing writer and eventually contributing photographer for a new website for a national corporation. Last week I was able to quit my teaching job and take on food photography full-time!"

    Ellie - @kitchen335co

  • "My first paid opportunity was 3 months after completing the course and it was with a large brand. The course not only gave me the photography skillset but the knowledge how to reach out to brands successfully and the courage to do so!"






    Candice - @eatmorecakebycandice

  • "I credit so much of my success to Foodtography School. I’m running a full time biz because of it!! It was the first investment I made in myself and in my blog and it felt like a lot at the time but I’m SO glad I did it. I remember how much my photography changed after watching the master class and I knew if I had improved that much from a free hour, I would move light years ahead with the course."


    Jordan - @jzeats

  • “I have recommended this course to COUNTLESS people over the last year (at least 4 within the last 2 weeks) and it really helped build my confidence as a photographer. This month I made DOUBLE what I make at my day job on photography contracts without pitching anyone! This course is 1000% worth the investment.”

    Emily - @lettuce.thrive

  • Foodtography school has been a great investment and has helped me transition my business from wedding photography to food/restaurant/branding photography and to get published in Nashville’s local food magazine!

    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.

    Hey food photographer!

    I remember way back when I first started my food photography journey — I kept searching and 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 whatever it might be. 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 new and improved Foodtography School.

    Love and brownies,
    Sarah
