  • Founder + Teacher

    Sarah Crawford

    Hey hey! My name is Sarah, and I’m the creator behind Foodtography School, where I’ve taught over 6,000 students how to improve their food photography through fun and information-packed online courses. I started my food blog, Broma Bakery, back in 2010 when I was a broke college student looking to bring creativity into her daily life. What was intended as a passion project has since grown into my career.

    Since going full-time with my blog in 2013, I made it my ultimate goal to strengthen my food photography. I lived by the adage “content is king,” believing that as my food photography improved, the content itself would open doors.

    And guess what? It worked. Actually, it more than worked. Broma Bakery grew beyond my wildest dreams into a 6-figure business within a matter of years. All because of my photographs!

    …which is why I created Foodtography School. So that I could pass along the knowledge I’ve gained in the past 8 years of learning food photography. Because we are only strong when we band together.

    Foodtography School is more than a course; it’s a community of individuals building each other up and helping each other grow. I’m so incredibly proud of the students who have already come through our course, and cannot wait for you to become one of them.

    Imagine your to do list. Now imagine someone doing it for you. That’s what I do. I’m Britt, and I’m the behind the scenes-tech-and-organizing guru for Foodtography School.

    My background is in online business and internet marketing, and honestly, I’m just here for the amazing pictures of cakes and cookies. I nerd out about weird things that no one likes: tech. This includes Facebook and Instagram advertising, email campaigns, webinars, content planning, and course design.

    Did I lose you already? Are you snoring? Overwhelmed? I get that a lot. My name is often used as noun when people talk about me…as in “I need a Brittany.” I think they mean “I need tech help” but at this point, I’m not quite sure. When I started helping entrepreneurs and business owners scale their online businesses back in 2014, I had no idea I would be helping tens of thousands of students learn through online education.

    I help my clients create organizing systems in their business to impact as many lives as possible. I love working with people who love what they do, and I love seeing students like you get results from amazing curators like Sarah.

  • Marketing Director

    Shanley Pearl

    @itsshanley

    Hi Guys! I’m Shanley, proud Foodtography Alum, turned Foodtography School Marketing Director! I’ve been in the food marketing space for over a decade, most recently in Chicago and Detroit.

    I was introduced to Sarah at an influencer event 2 years ago. From the moment I met her, she urged me to quit my day job running the email campaigns for the Detroit Red Wings and go full-time into my own thing. So guess what? I listened to her and started my own digital marketing firm. Sarah changed my life and I’ll love her forever for it!

    Over the past couple of years, I’ve built a thriving business helping entrepreneurs hone in on their visual branding, social media, and digital marketing. Let’s just say Instagram is MY JAM. And YES, I’m the chick behind the @foodtographyschoool handle. I help Sarah with everything from building out Foodtography School courses, to blog writing, website design, small product offerings… the list goes on. You name it I DO IT.

    I’m SO HAPPY you’re here because I was in your shoes not so long ago! And I want you to know no matter where you start, creating your own business and brand is 100% possible with hard work, determination, and Foodtography School.

  • Community Manager

    Ale Rodriguez

    @the.emerald.kitchen

    Hey, y’all! My name is Alejandra and I am the community manager at Foodtography School. I am a high school math teacher turned food blogger, and a proud Foodtography School alum!

    As community manager I work on our email, Instagram, and Facebook communication. On any given day I do anything from helping future students pick the right course for them to helping put our gorgeous Instagram feed together.

    I LOVE being a part of the Foodtography School team and adding value to our students’ lives. The teacher in me gets SO excited when I see a student who I helped join our community absolutely nailing their pictures or landing amazing brand deals. I absolutely love being of service to others and I can’t wait to be a part of your food photography journey!

  • Copywriter

    Grace Claman

    @grace.claman

    Ciao! I’m Grace, copywriter for Foodtography School. I’m also a swing dancer, a big fan of leather-bound notebooks, and #TeamEdward (…is that still a thing?). I live in Los Angeles, but I’m originally from Kansas. And yes, I do own a pair of overalls.

    One thing you get asked a lot when you’re a Creative Writing Major is, “what are you going to, like, do for a job?” And, when you graduate in the middle of a pandemic over a Zoom call, you might start asking yourself the same question. 

    Luckily, I’ve never been one for doing things the “normal” way, so after graduation, I decided to hire myself and become a freelance writer! WHOOPEE! And when I discovered Foodtography School, it was totally love at first sight. (Like, I’m pretty sure rose petals fell from the sky and violin music started playing.) I’m obsessed with online learning and how more and more people can get access to the skills they need to have a thriving career with courses just like this one. 

    Now, when someone asks me, “what do you do with your creative writing degree?” I can happily say: I write! And I write so that people like YOU can learn to do what you’ve always dreamed of doing, too.
