Food photography student request Information

One of the “down sides” to being really good at “Search Engine Optimization” is that I get tons of requests from students asking if I can answer a few questions for school projects.  In the past, I’ve done my best to take the time to answer the questions, but it seems that more and more people are asking and to tell you the truth, it’s getting kinda old.  I’d like to help and I think I still can, but I’m going to let you do the majority of the work.  

Here are a few places that you can look to get information for your school assignment for anything related to food photography or food photographers.

How to photograph food  -  all you probably want to know about food photography


Food Photography Blog – This is a place where you can go to learn more about food photography.  I’ve written a bunch of articles about the techniques and the business side of food photography. 


I’ve also written a couple of articles where I’ve gone into detail about how I did specific shots. I’ve had many requests for this.  In the article, I tell you, step by step, the techniques I used to do the shot.
