Welcome to Composition Essentials
Everything You Need To Know To Style, Compose + Photograph Your Unique Food Story.
What if you didn’t need to take a million lemon meringue shots to get it right?
Nailing food composition became second nature and you wondered how you ever struggled in the first place?
You were more organised and went into the photo shoot with a clear vision for what you want (rather than winging it every time). You could achieve the right ‘feel’ for your images and tell a story with your photos.
You were able to define your personal style to make your food photography truly recognisable and memorable (and land you that dream gig!). Your portfolio was cohesive and represented your unique style and flair.
When shooting cup cakes, you could get into that creative ‘zone’ (which is when the best shots happen!).
Let’s… Train your eyes to see things that would make an amazing image.
I hear your frustrations!
“You love taking photos of waffles but you struggle to find fresh ideas to style and compose the shot.”
“You keep reverting back to the same old, familiar setups (plate in the foreground, glass in the background) because when you try something new it just doesn’t work out”.
Or you take no less than 60 shots and you still don’t LOVE any of them!
Your food photos all just look dull and same-samey. Or the food looks, well, a little brown. (Aka…boring)
Composition is an art form
You’re looking for a creative structure as you feel overwhelmed when trying to build a food scene from nothing.
(No more feeling lost during a food shoot and relying on the same composition, background and props as usual. Which results in boring and uninspiring apple pie shots)
That’s why I created Composition Essentials
To help you style, plan and compose your food shots like the professionals and magazines do.

I’m Rachel, an Aussie food photographer living in Vancouver. I love capturing visual stories that emphasize the beauty of real food. When I take photographs, I focus on the honest details and intricacies that connects us emotionally to food.
More importantly, though, I know what it’s like to sit in your 9-5 gig and want something more. I’ve taught over 1,000 students how to create beautiful food photography that makes their community and clients hungry! Many students have gone onto land new clients and magazine features, plus get their work into stock agencies.
