Food Styling & Photography
Food Styling & Photography
Styling and photographing food is not just about capturing an attractive image, it's also about telling a story about taste, seasons and aesthetics. Learn how to transmit that through an image and share your work with potential clients, and the whole world.
Because food has to be delicious, yet look beautiful.
In this course, you will learn the most important parts of both styling and photographing food, as separate skills. Then, we will combine these two parts and see how the interact with each other, while also discussing business matters that will help you take your skills to the next level and monetise them. Please note that this course covers numerous topics in several weeks, and that it's not a photography in-depth course.
Whether you are a photographer looking to expand your skills and understand the role of a food stylist, a creative looking for a new career or somebody who is excited about food and wants to know if you can find a profession in this, this course will provide you – through different chapters with documentation, quizzes, graphic examples, photographs, tutorials, case studies, presentations and proposed exercises – with knowledge, examples and techniques to understand food styling and photography.

What type of course is this? What’s inside?
This is an interactive self-paced course. Everything is thought so you can take the course at your own pace. Please note this is not a “watch and see” video-based course. You will find written lessons, examples, lots of photographs, analysis, graphs, etc. that fills this course with valuable and practical information.
I don't have any technical photography knowledge. Should I take this course? Who is this course aimed at?
Yes, definitely. The course is not aimed at photographers (only), it is aimed at anyone interested in the topics of food styling and photography and is looking to understand them and learn what they are about. You can be looking for a new career or to expand your skills, or even just to have fun with it.
Note that we will not be teaching technical concepts in depth (we will be teaching the basics though), so it’s advisable to know how to use your own camera (if you are interested in the photography side of the course).
I have already taken your previous Food Styling & Photography course in the past. What’s different?
Well, really, everything. While most of the topics seem familiar to you and you probably read about them in our previous edition of the course, all the contents have been updated. Our first edition was created (already!) a few years ago, and there was a lot to renew and also brand new things to add. So, to sum up, this a better, more complete, up-to-date, and more in-depth version of our previous Food Styling & Photography course.
