The Food Photography Coach

Here to help you create beautiful food, drink & hospitality images

Lots of people struggle to get the imagery they need to help them succeed.  It’s my mission as The Food Photography Coach to take the mystery out of food photography and editing to help you achieve your dreams of being able to create beautiful, eye-catching imagery for your business.

Whether you shoot with a DSLR or just a phone, and whatever your learning preferences are, I can help you gain confidence, move off auto-settings and gain the knowledge to produce beautiful photographs that bring customers back time after time.

Getting Off Auto Workshop


  • A full day with me in the studio,
  • No jargon or tech speak

Or have you had a camera sitting on a shelf for ages and it’s time to get to use it properly?

Either way come and join me and go away confident in using your camera on manual.

We all learn differently, and yes there’s a wealth of information out there for free, if, you’ve time to do the research, know what you are looking for and can trust what you find.

A lot of learning though is very generic, it may not lend itself to your particular situation and that’s where the Food Photography Coach can really help.

From a membership club with new training each month, to set courses and workshops through to bespoke training and corporate workshops.  It’s all here and a lot more besides.  It’s all directed specifically to the food, drink & hospitality industry industry, where ever you are in it.

Food & Drink Photography Workshops


My workshops are small friendly sessions where there’s no more 6 delegates in total, ensuring everyone gets the help they need.

I’ll be adding workshops regularly now, do get in touch to find out what is coming up.  Don’t forget they will make great Christmas presents too…. Ask for more information.

There’ll be a mix of online and in person workshops coming up as I’m well aware not everyone is ready for in person sessions as yet or can travel.

Whether you are starting from scratch or have some experience, there’s sure to be something for you here.

If there’s something specific you are looking for and don’t see it, drop us a message and we’ll take a look.

1-2-1 Food & Drink Photography Tuition.


With 1-2-1 tuition, you can learn what you need, when you need too with 100% undivided attention.

The sessions can be customised to your specific needs and can be either here in the studio, on location with you or even online.

I did some teaching online during lockdown and it worked really well, so if distance is an issue this could be ideal for you.

It can reflect your food, your venue, your particular circumstances – after all those are what matter.

Get off auto settings, learn to edit and raise your images up to compete on an even playing field.

Learn how to set branding guidelines for your business so that even when you aren’t there, you can rely on the right imagery being produced.

Custom  Food & Drink Photography Courses


For a business there’s often more than one person who needs to be involved in creating images for a company and their busy social media channels, so a custom course to ensure you are all on the same page is often ideal.

The course can be tailor made to suit your specific company requirements, and could incorporate the formulation of photography branding guidelines to ensure a uniform approach as well as detailed knowledge on how to compose a shot, get the most from a camera and/or how to edit to bring images inline with the story you want to put out.

If this is something that interests you do drop us a message and we can have a chat through your requirements.
