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 how to capture a food image and its story with a natural yet strongly graphic approach. The instructor, noted photographer and director, will discuss every topic involved in the capturing of a stunning food photograph. You'll learn simple and natural food and prop styling techniques, the best camera angles, simple and effective post-production processes and a discussion about mobile food photography, amongst other topics. Aiala will also share business insight with you, and how to present your work the best way possible to potential clients. However, 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, or a novice using nothing more than your smartphone, 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 improve your food styling and photography.
