FOR CAPTURING FOOD PHOTOS THAT ATTRACT CUSTOMERS

and brand deals that pay *top dollar*

 
 

Here’s the deal.

You have pretty food photos... 

and you’re doing all the “right things,

but you know there’s something missing… 

You *might* be thinking…

  • No matter how amazing my food looks and tastes, my photos never seem to turn out exactly how I envisioned them.

  • With all the hours I’m spending planning, cooking, shooting and posting, shouldn’t I be seeing better results already like customers, clients and brand deals?

  • No matter what I do, I’m still only getting approached by brands with gifts or low ball offers and I’m not even sure if getting paid is possible for me anymore.

  • With all the sweat and tears I’m putting into this, shouldn’t I be making WAY more money!?

Getting paid good money for your food photos is possible, and I can show you exactly how!

You are *so ready* to…

  • Take amazing food photos that you can charge a premium for and still have brands and customers lining up to pay you.
  • Know exactly how to capture brands in a way that sells… so you can stop overthinking your shots and feel confident every time you snap a photo.
  • Finally ditch your day job and turn your passion for food and drink into your full time gig.

Whether you’re a creator that wants to get paid to take photos for your dream brands or a brand that wants to attract premium customers with pro-quality photos…

Now is the time to turn your passion for food and photography into a career!

As seen in...

Hi! I’m Carolyn

& this is Travis

We’re the husband and wife food & drink photography team behind On Brand Food Photography Mentorship.

______

With over 5 years of experience as a professional food stylist, I learned the exact steps that are taken to capture photos and videos for billion dollar food businesses.

We used our learnings from working in production to start our own blog - The Social Sipper - in 2018. We turned The Social Sipper to our full time gig (with less than 10k followers) by focusing on stunning brand photography. 

It wasn’t too long before I started getting questions like - “No offense Carolyn, but how are you getting more and higher paid brand deals with so few followers?”

I saw that so many other people were hustling nonstop and taking pretty photos but still not seeing results. And what I realized was that many of them were SO CLOSE and just needed a couple tweaks to finally make the same kind of money I was. 

I got asked about it so much, I couldn't keep up with the DMs. So I created On Brand Food Photography Mentorship to share our full system so you can take photos that get you paid too!

 

And the system works!

 
You caught that right?

>>> A $500 payment for her food photos

(and she didn’t even have to do any work because she already took them!)

And you can make money with your food photography too!

I'M SO READY

A few years ago, I was spending *hours* a day pumping out enough content to post consistently and trying to grow my following with every algorithm hack out there…

But all I saw was an inbox full of gifted offers and a couple low budget brand deals.   

That’s when I decided to focus on capturing brands in a way that sells. Here’s what happened…

In 1 year, we made 6 figures from food photography… with less than 10k followers.

All working from home (and in sweatpants most of the time!)

And now I want to help you do the same.

Student Testimonials

“Before B2OB, I struggled with communicating my value to brands as well as how to attract the brands I want to work with. This class helped me develop strategies to add more value so that I can feel confident in charging appropriately. Since joining B2OB, one of my dream brands reached out to me! The most valuable parts of the program were the demonstrations and the live sessions, in particular, the lighting setups, styling, and how to shoot for brands. Plus, I learned exactly what to do to attract and pitch paid partnerships with my favorite brands. This class is a fantastic value!”

 - Emily Miller

“After taking her course with coaching, I now have a specific niche for my brand and understand how to keep my brand cohesive to get the clients I want. Instead of feeling lost and unsure, I now feel much more prepared to reach out to brands.  The information presented is straight to the point without time-consuming fluff. Most importantly, Carolyn and Travis have given me the knowledge and confidence I needed to start working with brands, regardless of the number of followers I have.

If you’re a food/drink photographer tired of only getting free products, and you want to actually get paid to work with brands you like, I highly recommend the course!”

-Bach Tran

Before Bland to on Brand, I was struggling with taking my food photography to the next level. I knew my photos where lacking something, but I didn’t know how to change them. After just a few days in BTOB, I saw a big difference in my photos. 

I definitely had some wins throughout the program. I gained the confidence to pitch three brands, something I would not have done had I not received the encouragement that I did from Carolyn and Travis. One of the pitches helped me land an ongoing feature in our local magazine. This was a big win for me!

I think the most valuable part of the program was the community aspect. The Facebook group was a great support system and a way to connect with likeminded people. And I really got a great deal of information and feedback out of the group calls. 

It was great getting feedback. I was able to make tweaks and adjustments on the fly and it really improved the composition of my photos. 

I’m so glad I took the Bland to On Brand Photography Program! I learned much more than I expected to and feel very confident to move ahead with pitching brands.

-Christina DiFeo Petrella

 

“Before, I was so paralyzed and didn't know why everyone else's pictures seemed so much better. Now, I finally feel unstuck and confident to handle my own product and beverage photography. . 

Just watching Carolyn and Travis go through a photoshoot step by step would have been worth the money, but that's just one small bonus scene! They literally teach you from start to finish everything you need to create mouthwatering food and beverage photography as well as product photography.”

-Candace Majedi-Caswell 

“I signed up to the Bland to On Brand Photography course because I was ready to up my photography game and learn the process of working with brands.

I needed advice around styling, composition, editing and how to get the very best product shots for clients. I also wanted to know the process for approaching brands and creating a valuable offering.

I was so impressed by the amount of information and detail offered in this course. It is excellent value for money.

Carolyn was able to give me both the tools I needed to produce high quality, professional images, and the confidence to move forward knowing I have the expertise to get the best possible outcome for my clients.”

-Natalie 

“{The program} has changed my photography completely. I have learned about light, about composition, how to apply the color wheel in your photos. How to grow my Instagram and how to gain confidence and pitch to brands. 

I would recommend this course to anyone that wants to improve or learn about food photography! I made some amazing friends in the B2OB Community and we are still in contact and supporting each other. I am now confident to approach brands, I can work with light, I can style a scene and I can tell a story with my photography, something that was my dream all along.

Carolyn and Travis are very generous with their time and their knowledge and I have to say thank you, thank you, thank you! You gave me the boost and knowledge to pursue a future career as a food photographer/blogger and influencer so all the course is very valuable!”

-Cristina Fanita
