I It started when a food blogger/writer approached me for tutoring to help improve her photography. She recognized that good food photographs showcasing her recipes and food ideas are essential for a successful food based website. She  needed help using her camera. I found that I loved the ability to help and teach others something of my craft.

I joined William's class (Food Photography Level 1)last Saturday and I absolutely loved it! I am a beginner and knew very little on how to take great photos before joining the class. By the end of the day, my self-confidence grew significantly. William will teach you how to use your camera, styling your food and lighting and so much more! William is a fantastic teacher who is incredibly patient and gives each of his students his full attention. He is funny and puts you at ease. I highly recommend it. Excellent value for money!

Such a great course! I had a fantastic time and I really enjoyed myself. We did a bit of technical which taught me about how to use my camera to the best of its ability, food styling and of course food photography with lots of tips and tricks on lighting etc. Would definitely recommend!
