Tired of Crummy Phone Photos?
Yeah, we’ve been there, but we figured out how to take food images from bland to “WOW” with just a few simple techniques.
Your smart phone is extremely capable of capturing amazing photographs. But it requires the right tools and skills to take your photos from forgettable to Instagram-worthy. Let Dana – who has 785,000+ Instagram followers – show you how!
It all comes down to mastering your camera, understanding light, knowing which angles are best, and editing like a pro. Dana is going to teach you exactly how she uses her smart phone when she’s capturing food photos both inside and out in the real world. See how she captures her subjects, navigates various lighting scenarios, and what she thinks of phone lenses (and which ones she recommends).
For $129, you get to jump the learning curve. With her as your personal guide, you’ll take full advantage of her best tips and tricks, and create a stunning Instagram feed.
Making food look tasty can be tricky. The Food Photography School Essentials course is here to help.
You probably know by now you need more than just a decent camera to take a captivating food photo. Equipment is helpful, but you need skills to really make your food shine.
Follow Dana (a full-time food blogger and food photographer at minimalistbaker.com) as she walks you through 130+ video lessons that will help you develop these incredibly powerful skills to take your photos from “bleh” to “WOW.”
Learn from a pro who’s been at this 7+ years and is ready to share with you everything she’s learned along the way.
Maybe you’ve mastered styling and lighting, but your photos still look less than phenomenal.
It’s editing time!
You’ve tried to figure it out on your own with random google searches. But the reality is, food photography is different from portrait or landscape photography, which means it requires a different set of tools and techniques.
If you’re serious about photo editing, you’re probably already using Photoshop or Lightroom. If not, you’re likely too overwhelmed with the options and don’t know where to start.
Don’t worry. We’ll walk you through our entire editing process, step-by-step, and show you how we use the right tools to make your food photographs look incredible.
Curious what you’ll learn? Test out the photos above. They look fine to start, but they look AMAZING after editing. Let us walk you through exactly what the editing process looks like.
BONUS: Download the photos so you can follow along as Dana edits her images in Photoshop and Lightroom!
No Natural Light? No problem.
Do you live somewhere with gloomy weather? Does your apartment have limited light? Can you only take photos in evenings or early mornings? Trust us – we’ve been there.
And we have a solution: Artificial light. Dana (of Minimalist Baker) has been taking food photos for 7+ years and has made it her craft and full-time job. In this course, she’s teamed up with professional food photographer Ian Johnson – who makes learning and using artificial light a breeze – to walk you through all the pitfalls to avoid with artificial lighting, and how to master it once and for all.
Ian says it best, “You can make the light do whatever you want – you just have to know how to manipulate it.” Trust us – by the end of this course you’ll be using artificial lights like a pro.
You need to know how to use artificial lights.
For $299, you get to jump the learning curve. With Ian and Dana as your personal guides, you’ll take full advantage of their best tips and tricks and finally begin capturing stunning food photos with artificial light.

This course is a comprehensive guide to taking amazing food photos with a DSLR camera or your phone. From photography basics to food styling and artificial lighting, Dana explains and demonstrates everything in a way that’s easy to understand and implement. My only wish is that I would have taken the course sooner!

I LOVE this course. My favorite parts were the styling in the Essentials course, where Dana shows exactly how she styles so many different (challenging) foods, and the entire artificial lighting course. I’ve loved food photography for years but artificial lighting is one area I always struggle with so I loved learning from Dana and Ian on how to make that work for me.

Food Photography School has something for everyone. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, Dana will help bring your food photography to the next level! With the expanded courses on artificial lighting and phone photography, you’ll have everything you need to create beautiful mouthwatering images from anywhere.

A workshop can cost $1,000 + expenses and still only last 1 or 2 days. Plus, you can’t reference the material once you leave.
These courses cost a fraction of that amount, and teach you skills you can easily sell and profit from. How?
Food stylists can easily make $500 per day. Professional photographers can easily charge $1,000 per day. And if you master artificial light, you can no doubt make back the cost of this course after one gig.
Not to mention, better images = better engagement with your audience, wherever they may be. Use this course to professionally promote your business, website, food blog, and even take on professional clients.
Trust us – we’ve built a successful online business with engaging, beautiful images at the core of what we do. And Dana has not only built a massive audience on Minimalist Baker, but also worked professionally as a food stylist and food photographer for corporate clients. What are you waiting for? Save money while learning from a pro!
