William Reavell Photographer and teacher at food photography training

William Reavell Photographer and teacher at food photography training

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 is essential for a successful food blog/website. She wanted to take the pictures herself but needed help and a bit of guidance. I found that I loved the ability to help and teach others something of my craft.

In 2014 I started my courses on food photography, called food photography training . Ideal for those working in the food industry, food writers, bloggers and aspiring Photographers. A practical day with minimal lecture time and maximum picture taking. Working with you and your camera, my aim is to improve your understanding of Photography and start creating beautiful food photographs.

Contact me by email or phone for bookings and enquiries.

I also teach at Leiths School of Food and Wine running courses in Food Photography, thoroughly enjoyable and full days in learning to photograph food. Please visit their website if you are interested in joining me on their next course.
