Helping food photographers learn to create captivating videos

You’re about to turbocharge your ability to tell visual stories and bring a whole new energy to your portfolio.

Increasing your income streams just got a LOT more fun.

Are you a food photographer who wants to:

  • Tell clients, “Yes, I offer video services!”
  • Use your camera for more than just taking still photos
  • Get people to stop and watch when they see one of your videos in their feed

It’s all 100% possible.


Video is HOT

If you’re a food photographer, you know that video is in high demand in all its formats.

GIFs, stop motion, live streams, recipe videos, we’re pushing the boundaries of what’s next!

And maybe you’re like a lot of folks
I know and you have:

  • Convinced yourself that it’s too hard to learn video
  • Tried watching YouTube tutorials that are either 10 steps ahead and you can’t keep up, or so basic you feel like you’re wasting your time
  • Felt sidetracked by all the directions you could go with learning video (SQUIRRELL!!) but still haven’t created a video you’re proud to share
  • Shut down mentally just thinking about learning one more darn software
  • Been worried that your video skills (and gear) won’t reach your level of expectations

How do I know?

Because these are the things I hear from people in our community every day.

They’ve told me they want:

A quick (but thorough) educational path to learning video

An ability to create videos for their portfolio as you’re learning new skills

Lessons that break things down into small, actionable steps with accountability and motivation built-in

A curriculum for people working from home who have limited space and budget for gear

And I feel ya!

In 2016, the VP of Marketing for a big West Coast food brand asked me, “Can you make us a video for our social media?”

Not knowing what I didn’t know, I said, “Yes!” That was both a blessing and a curse.

It was a curse because I delivered a video with weird transitions, inconsistent color, and a complete lack of story, among other issues. I cringe thinking about it. That video did not perform well when they shared it online and they didn’t hire me to make any more videos.

But that moment was also a blessing because it kickstarted my journey into learning and falling in love with video production and editing. It’s also helped me earn hundreds of thousands of dollars from creating videos for clients.

I knew I was capable of figuring out video just like I’d figured out photography. And YOU are, too!

That’s why I created
Food in Motion

Video is here to stay, and it’s an invaluable
tool in today’s world of online media.

What It Is

Food in Motion is a self-paced online course that is built to get you creating your own videos right away. Just like you don’t learn to ride a bike sitting in a lecture, I know that the best way for you to learn is through hands-on experience.

We’re here to fast-track your video education so you can confidently share your work and start making an impact with your videos within a few weeks.

Your Course Curriculum

The bite-sized lessons start with the most essential element of successful videos:

storytelling.

Once you have your story developed, I’ll layer on the technical elements and then take you through my full process of video creation, from initial concept to final delivery.

Food photographers who feel comfortable shooting stills on a DSLR or mirrorless camera and are ready to learn video. Food bloggers, commercial photographers, will all gain valuable skills from this course.

People who want to learn to shoot videos with their phone. Though some concepts will be transferrable, particularly the storytelling unit of the course, the technical aspects of the course are aimed at DSLR and mirrorless photographers.

Yep! You will need to understand how to operate a camera in manual mode in order to get the most out of the course. If you need to learn manual, check out this video playlist on YouTube.

There is also a free Food Video 101 mini course for learning the fundamentals of video work that serves as an introduction to this course.

The total course includes 89 on-demand instructional videos, all ranging from 4 – 12 minutes in length. Each unit of the course takes approximately 90 to 120 minutes to complete and it’s learn at your own pace.

The content is created specifically with food photographers in mind though is also transferrable to product photographers.

You’ll see use of the gimbal in the restaurant demo and I touch on it briefly, but like a lot of tabletop video folks would agree, a gimbal is not the best tool for the job.

They’re helpful if you’re filming people, spaces, moving shots at events, but for food and product at close proximity, they’re a challenge and there are easier solutions.  

A better tool and what I demonstrate and recommend for moving shots is a pan and tilt head and a slider. I also show how handheld can also be much easier and more effective and techniques for both filming handheld as well as editing handheld footage.

You have lifetime access to all course materials, videos and the online community. Plus, you also will receive any future updates and additions to the course for your one-time purchase.

We’re here to help! In addition to being able to post questions in the community Activity Feed inside the course (not a Facebook group) where The Bite Shot pro team personally answers questions, you’re invited to attend Open Office Hours with the team, an opportunity to chat in real time over Zoom.
