" I had the pleasure of attending one of William Reavell's photography courses last year. When I received the news that he had published a book on food styling and photography, I was very excited. Once I bought and read ' Food Styling for Photography', I was not disappointed. It is ideal for anyone (from beginners like me to professionals) who wants to create mouth watering food pictures for magazines, social media and cookbooks. It is an excellent book that gives you step by step guide on how to style and photograph your food (there are excellent tricks and tips on how to deal with meat and sauces which are difficult to style and photograph), the tools you would need as a stylist (inexpensive items such as cotton buds/ paper towels to wipe away unwanted mess on your plate), how to shape your food and keep it fresh and so much more! The breathtaking photographs (food styled here by Rachel Miles) in this book showcase William's extraordinary talent as a professional food photographer. What is great about William is that he is very down to earth and makes you believe that, with patience and sheer hard work, you too can achieve fantastic pictures no matter what level. Overall, it is a great resource and well worth buying!"
This was the BEST short course I have ever done. Will and his team were amazing and the tips and tricks I picked up will benefit me for ever more. Thanks again Will!!!
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!

"The food photography training course was exactly what we were looking for. It was in a relaxed environment & allowed us to get hands on experience of setting up a shoot whilst getting feedback on where we could improve. We came away with images better than we were able to shoot before & lots of ideas of how to improve our set up & final product."

"Undertaking the Leith's Food Styling and Photography course with Will was, without doubt, the best thing I did for my food blog. A complete novice when I started, I picked up so much knowledge and hands-on experience during my course. Most of all it gave me the confidence to go outside of my 'photography comfort zone'. Since the course I have won myself some great commissions with food companies and had some of my food photography published in magazines. Anyone thinking about doing this course - do it. You won't be disappointed"

“ William is a natural-born tutor who executes his session in an articulate, practical and easy-to-understand manner, even for someone who is far from being geeky! His sessions on camera work and Photoshop given to our company
have helped in deciphering the mysteries of digital photography we can now proudly combat with newly – acquired skills.”

"You offered just the right balance of technical information about the camera to practical hands on photography. I was concerned that as I have practically no understanding of photography and quite frankly find the theory mind boggling,
I would struggle to keep up. But you explained thebasics so clearly and gave just the right amount of information so that I didn’t hit overload. "

"Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for such an enjoyable and productive day last weekend. I started off the day feeling like a nervous amateur and came out feeling like a pro, with some beautiful shots to match. Miraculous! I
It's amazing the difference learning just a few things about light and composition has made to my pictures. The day was a real confidence-builder. I've just landed my first proper commission to photograph a food calendar so I'll be putting my new-found skills to good use very soon. Am chuffed to bits!
"William Reavell is an amazing food photographer and a great teacher. He combined really well theory and practice and he was extremely approachable. He gave a great mix of general and specific one-to-one advice, disclosing tricks of the trade and how to apply them as an amateur photographer. I really enjoyed his food photography course and there has been a step change in my pictures since I attended it. I even got my first picture accepted on Foodgawker whilst being on the course!"
