Using just a camera and a few supplies...

Thousands of bloggers, online publishers and content creators need help developing, creating, styling and photographing recipes and crafts. They hire photographers to help them re-do old recipe photos that look out of date. They also hire people to shoot new recipes when they are pressed for time.

There’s a real market need for quality content. This creates an opportunity for you to use your DSLR camera and just a few supplies to create a career and life you love.

My setup is super simple:

  • DSLR camera
  • Lenses
  • ExpoDisc
  • Reflector
  • Poster Board
  • Vinyl styling boards
  • Table
  • Step stool
  • Window
I don't have expensive lighting or a crazy amount of equipment. And I don't have to leave the house to work. With portrait photography I was at weddings on weekends or shooting on location. Now, I work from my kitchen.

I don’t want you to make the same mistakes I did. When I first started, I wasn’t confident styling photos. I didn’t have the right lighting. And I significantly undervalued my own work.

I’ve taken everything I have learned photographing hundreds of recipes and crafts for bloggers and developed Pretty Focused, a course that will help you create a career and life you love by the time you finish it.
