"I gained confidence in my own creativity and vision. Ana's hands-on advice enabled me to improve my pictures and style and to experiment more. Ana guides you through the whole process of creating strong imagery (yes indeed from the first brainstorm session to the BIG shooting day) in a very lovely, encouraging and inspiring way. Above all, I absolutely loved the SPARK her course gave me to continue my practice and develop really exciting concepts. Thank you Ana!"

I’m not a professional photographer, is this course for me?
Yes, this course is designed with a beginner (or even intermediate) level in mind. You’ll only need basic knowledge and handling of your preferred camera, whether it be a DSLR, a film camera or even your phone. I encourage you to use the tool you’re most comfortable with, there’s no need to complicate things.
I have no “fancy” photography equipment or artificial lights, will I be able to take this course?
Yes! This course is flexible enough to accommodate people with different kinds of equipment. You can use a basic DSLR or even your phone to take the photos, and natural light or whatever artificial light you might have for this course. We will not go deep into the technical side of photography, rather, concentrate on concept creation and finding your own creative voice.
I’m not a professional chef or food stylist, will my basic food knowledge work for this course?
I’m not a professional chef or food stylist either. Everyone has some sort of relationship with food, though. Food communicates ideas, emotions and stories, and it doesn’t need to look “beautiful” or professionally styled to achieve that.
What will I need for this course?
You’ll need to have basic photography knowledge and handling of whatever equipment you might need to take and edit the photographs. Also, you’ll need a basic understanding of materials and tools to create props (for example, obtaining textiles, painting/cutting or manipulation of materials for prop and backdrop creation depending on your concept). You’ll also need simple kitchen utensils and cooking experience, depending as well on the concept you’ll develop.
I have a busy routine and little free time, will I be able to keep up with the course?
Yes, you definitely can accommodate this course to your own time and schedule. This course is designed to be able to integrate many people coming from different time zones. Most of the modules are pre-recorded and you can return to them and any additional class material whenever you like, even after the course has officially ended. There will be a few live sessions for questions and feedback, but we’ll try to accommodate the time that suits most people by discussing it in our virtual group chat.
What can I expect after taking this course?
After taking this course, you’ll feel more comfortable with concept creation and successfully communicating it with a series of photographs. You’ll have a list of idea-sparking strategies and resources to come up with unique creative concepts that reflect your own voice and style.
Do I get a certificate after the course?
Yes, definitely! Once you have completed the course, send us an email to request your OSFD Certificate and we are happy to send it to you :)
