Food Photography


Shoot Professional Food Images

10 Week Online Course

What Will I Learn?

 Compose and photograph mouth-watering food shots and take your food photography skills to the next level for professional output. The course starts with learning camera basics and developing an eye for composition with storytelling and props. You will learn how to capture light with artificial and studio light, how to control hard light and how to work with purposeful shadows to create artistic food photographs. Learn how to capture steam, smoke and splash to enhance your food images, and how to elevate your pictures further in your preferred image editing software.
Requirements: An entry level DSLR camera is preferred and access to editing software. A simple tripod would be useful for efficiency and image stability and options for reflectors and studio lighting will be discussed during the course.

Irina Sitnikoff


It was such a great decision to do Le Cordon Bleu Food Photography course, I was a beginner food photographer when I started and I gained so much knowledge! The course is very easy to follow, the learning platform is great and easy to navigate. Nelly Le Comte is amazing. Nelly has many years of experience in photography which she shared during this course. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone. I give 10 out of 10! Very happy.

This Food Photography class far exceeded my expectations. With huge professionalism, Nelly helped me move out of my comfort zone and experiment with new techniques that have improved my skills. The educational material shared on the platform was very explicit and easy to understand and the live classes with Nelly also served to clarify doubts and receive advice on how to improve our techniques in a very relaxed environment.
