A powerful 6 week, self-paced online course for foodies, influencers and photographers (current or aspiring!) and food-based business owners wanting to LEVEL UP their content and gain consistent income doing what they love.

This is for you if...

✓ You're an influencer, content creator or blogger wanting to start monetising your hobby or elevating your content to earn more $$$ from collabs and partnerships.

✓ You're interested in food photography but you have no idea where to start - even shopping for a camera has you frustrated, let alone complex composition techniques!

✓ You're taking pretty good photos with your phone but you want to step up your photography game to stand out from the crowd!

✓ You are ready to invest in yourself and put in the work to learn new skills.

✓ You wish you had someone to ask questions about photography, editing and business.

Foodie to Photographer is not...

  • More complex information to overwhelm and confuse you
  • A generic photography course that doesn't teach you the specifics of capturing amazing FOOD photos.

Foodie to Photographer students get exclusive, lifetime access to a private Facebook community of likeminded foodies and passionate content creators! This is a space where you can network and get personalised support from myself (Marie), and your peers, throughout the course and beyond!

I encourage students to:

Share your struggles, e.g. share and get advice on any stressful situations or sticky clients

Have conversations with and network with other foodies!

Inside the course

When I first started my food page on Instagram, I spent countless hours scrolling through complicated articles and watching Youtube videos trying to learn how to capture amazing food photos. Despite all of that – there were SO MANY of things that I had to figure out on my own! Foodie to Photographer is your express pass to incredible food photography!

about me

Hi! I'm your

teacher, Marie.

Why learn

from me?

It all started with me sharing iPhone pics of my Sydney food adventures - bowls of steaming ramen and neighbourhood latte art. The food was great and photos were...crappy, but it ignited an incredible passion for all things food and content creation!

I was rewarded with delicious meals and the opportunity to practice my skills. Living the dream, right? But then something hit me: I loved photography WAY more than my office job, and I discovered people were actually making a living from this gig?!?! Don't get me wrong, free ice cream is amazing, but (sadly) it doesn't pay the bills.

Now, let's dive into the numbers...

In my old office job, I used to make around $4,600 (AUD) per month.

In my first month in business, I earned $1,250.

By the second month, I hit $2,450.

By month six, I matched my previous monthly salary.

And by month nine, I doubled it!

Fast forward to today, and I'm earning more in a single day than I used to make in an entire month. I'm the proud owner of a premium food photography agency, working with dream clients every single day. And here's the kicker: I'm working less hours than ever before!

Trust me when I say that there's serious money to be made in food photography and content creation, and I'm here to share it all with you!
