Welcome to the Bite Shot!

I’m Joanie. Food photographer and photography teacher. I’m here to help you feel confident behind your camera.

My secret ninja skill is turning complex photography concepts into easy to understand lessons that you can apply to your work right away.

I also firmly believe that the skills you bring to your work are far more important than your gear. Phone cameras, DSLRs, point and shoot, mirrorless, all welcome. If it takes a picture and you’re ready to learn, you’re in the right place.

❤️ Joanie
