Hey you! My name’s Rachel.
Welcome to ‘The Studio’.
I’m a professional food photographer, an Aussie gal and I’m currently living in Vancouver. I’ve been shooting food for over 7 years now, but I started out not even knowing how to use a camera and my baking skills terrible.
I love capturing visual stories and adore bright, clean and uplifting imagery that emphasises the beauty of real food. Even my dark work has an element of brightness to it.
When I take photographs, I focus on the honest details and intricacies that connects us emotionally to food.
My work has been featured in a range of magazines and publications all over the world. More importantly, though, I know what it’s like to sit in your 9-5 gig and want something more.
And I LOVE teaching and empowering others to find joy and inspiration in their photography and creative life. That’s how my blog Two Loves Studio started.
Founded in 2012, and then called Two Loves, I shared my love of digital photography with food. It evolved into Two Loves Studio, where I teach creatives just like you how to capture food photography.
It’s a place where we can all equally feel connected by our two loves.
