My colleagues at Aspire Photography Training and I are passionate about food photography and know how important it is to get this niche subject perfect every time. It is essential that you have an understanding of composition and lighting, and a sensitivity to the value of delicious food images. Whether you’re creating promotional imagery for your clients, creating a cookbook, you are a food writer or simply want to create art for your home, the right approach will enable you to capture stunning imagery of food that would look right at home in a gallery or high-end recipe book.

This course is a chance to explore the way you use lighting and focus, and the way you compose an image. Whilst indulging your creative side on a variety of delicious still-life compositions (food fans will be in their element here!), you’ll hone your technical skills, developing techniques that will influence the way you work in other photographic areas. This course offers a total hands-on experience and you will be immersed not only in food photography but also food preparation!

As you’d expect on a food photography course from Aspire, you’ll receive expert guidance from our industry-leading training team. With a unique combination of creative liberation and productive training, this really is the perfect photography course if you want to experience the thrill of discovery whilst moving your abilities forward. You’ll leave with an amazing new set of images for your portfolio, as well as new inspiration that you can implement throughout your business.
