Our 1st Food Photography course,
The PHOOD Method :
Master Food Photography in 6 weeks
We’ve worked with the best chefs, brands, publications, and food critics in the world to condense our learnings into one simple and effective course. Over 6 modules, you’ll learn the fundamentals of serving up quality content.
Tap into your creative potential. Master the basics. Hone your craft. Create magazine worth content worth sharing. We help you find and own your own style.
We won’t teach you how to photograph like us, we’ll unlock how to photograph like you. This course provides everything you need to go out and start taking photos.
Anyone can take beautiful photographs of food - you aren't born with a natural talent. You need to learn the theory and skills.
We believe that just like food, knowledge is worth sharing. We’re here to teach you, guide you, and empower you to go out on your own.
PHOOD is not about shortcuts but we are about tricks of the trade. We won’t teach you how to photograph like us, we’ll unlock how to photograph like you. We help you find and own your own style, not ours.
ALWAYS in the studio. ALWAYS finding inspiration in our surroundings. ALWAYS online. ALWAYS in a restaurant, café or market.
Sukaina Rajabali’s photographs have captured the imagination of brands and audiences around the world for the last 10 years. Her style has graced best selling books and international magazines as well as working with some of the top restaurants and advertising campaigns in Dubai.
In her first photography course, she is bringing her secrets to the world, across equipment, styling, technology, but most importantly, storytelling: discovering and developing ideas, working with objects, shooting with natural light in manual mode, and post production industry secrets. See the food world through her lens.
Like asking which is your favorite child - Rosemary & Salted Dark Chocolate is one we can’t stop craving – both from a taste and photograph aesthetic.

Never overlook the power and potential of a good chopping board, one that your mother and her mother have been using for years in their kitchen. Signs of wear and tear are the best part; revealing love, character, and a thousand meals shared together. Can’t find a family heirloom? Get to your nearest thrift store.
Not so much a café but the ocean view buffet breakfast of Cape Weligama Resort, Sri Lanka filled our hearts and stomach to the brim.
Wimbledon Farmer’s Market, London. Hands down the best. It’s here we found our favorite, grey patina background - it makes any food photo look good.
Always a poke bowl, ALWAYS. Bursts of freshness and acidity. READY for seconds.
Honestly, we’d take village or city café hopping over a beach any day. Take San Sebastian, for example. Countless, timeless photo opportunities of locals and their rustic food offerings at every corner.
