Food Blogger

Lightroom Magic helped Kristina to find and perfect her editing style. She came into the course with a clear vision of what she wanted the feel of her images to be. By breaking down each adjustment in Lightroom, Kristina could cherry pick which ones to use to get her now signature look each time.

Visnja had a vision for her images, but she wasn’t able to produce the colours or editing style she wanted. The gap in editing knowledge was holding her back. After completing Lightroom Magic, she found an editing style that made her work stand out. She ticked off her goal of being accepted to contribute to a premium stock agency.

Suchita watched many free video tutorials in the hopes of mastering Lightroom, but the lack of direction for editing food left her disappointed and deflated. After completing Lightroom Magic, the quality of her images improved tremendously. She felt empowered and confident. She’s even been approached by brands wanting to work with her.

Himanshu realised he was hitting a ceiling with his skills and creativity. After Lightroom Magic walked took him through the entire editing process, he felt much more confident. There was a lot of adjustments he just wasn’t using to give his images that ‘wow feeling’. Now, he can get the creative vision he’s after.

Rachel Korinek


I’m Rachel, an Aussie food photographer living in Vancouver. I love capturing visual stories that emphasize the beauty of real food. When I take photographs, I focus on the honest details and intricacies that connects us emotionally to food.

More importantly, though, I know what it’s like to sit in your 9-5 gig and want something more. I've taught over 1,000 students how to create beautiful food photography that makes their community and clients hungry! Many students have gone onto land new clients and magazine features, plus get their work into stock agencies.

My work has been featured in a range of magazines and publications all over the world.

Who should join Lightroom Magic?


Who Lightroom Magic is for?

  • Cool creatives who love to shoot food.

  • Beginner food photographers, hobbyists, intermediate and semi-pro or self taught photographers, food bloggers and Instagrammers.

  • Anyone wanting to know core editing theory for food photography and harness the power of editing make food images powerful.

  • Beginner and self-taught Lightroom users who want to move beyond the basics into the serious food styling and photography zone and fast.

  • Advanced Lightroom users if you're self-taught there are a handful of tools I just know you're not using.


Who Lightroom Magic is not for?

  • People who just want to know keyboard shortcuts and how to customise Lightroom.

  • Photographers who aren’t into food photography. Other niches like landscape and portrait photography require a different set of adjustments.

  • Food photographers who won’t shoot RAW files, ever.

  • Any photographers who don’t have a camera OR who solely shoot with their iPhone. You need to shoot RAW files to get the most from this program.

  • Those who aren’t into Lightroom!

  • Anyone who just wants a crash course, (cause masterclasses produce masters!)


Got questions? Check out the FAQs.


What version of Lightroom is this course taught in?

This masterclass is recorded and taught in Lightroom Classic CC, the desktop version. It's important to have access to this full version in the learning stage. At the end of the course, I show you how to use your knowledge to edit in Lightroom CC Mobile version. You can get access to both versions in the Photography Plan by Adobe.

I’ve used Lightroom for years. Can I get anything more from it?

I felt that way too. But being able to use the program doesn’t always translate into understand the concepts behind what makes a great image or the core aspects of food photography editing. If you didn’t know that there are over six ways to add colour to your image, over eight ways to add contrast to your image, OR over six ways to add exposure to your image then you are missing out on the opportunity to truly harness a unique editing process that translates into stunning work.

How are the lessons delivered? How long do I have to take the course?

The course materials are shared as video content. We’ll cover key ideas for each lesson, common mistakes and pro tips, before diving into the Lightroom action. There are also cheat sheets for each lesson with the key ideas, so you stay on top of the new knowledge bombs you’ll be learning. There is also no time limit on the course, so you can learn at your leisure. Take in one new lesson a day or binge watch. It’s just like Netflix; fits right in your schedule.

Can I do a payment plan?

You sure can. This course can be purchased for three payments of $145 USD and is available as an option when you check out. You can get started today for less!

Is there a money-back guarantee?

You bet-ya! I genuinely want you to succeed, which is why I offer a generous 30-day money-back guarantee. If you do the work, implement the core editing techniques for food and don’t see any improvement to your work, simply let me know within 30-days if you’d like a refund.

I use Photoshop to edit. Should I make the switch?

This course is much, much more than just how to use Lightroom. It’s a powerful food photography editing system that really teaches you how to create killer work. My techniques can be applied to Photoshop’s Camera Raw. The power lies in ‘how’ to edit. You can definitely learn my system and integrate it into Photoshop. It’s how we use these programs that counts.

I don’t shoot food. Should I still take this course?

I totally believe this course will unleash your inner editing wizard and is a crucial part of the photographic process. The theory in this course transcends food photography and can be applied to editing as a whole. HOWEVER, the content was made specifically for food photography and is heavily tailored to food. ONLY food photography is edited in this course. So if you NEVER plan on shooting anything food related or still life, I recommend you take a look at the other wonderful course options you have within the niche you shoot.

I’m just starting out. Is this course going to help me?

It sure will, because I created it from a place of knowing what it is like to start from square one. I’m not going to bedazzle you with crazy hard technical terms. There is support every step of the way. Each course lesson builds upon one another to create a solid foundation. Cheat sheets, lesson recaps and tasks ensure you retain all the knowledge you need to create your unique style. I’ll show you the exact system you can follow until you find your feet.

Does this course come with Lightroom?

At this time, students will need to already have access to Lightroom or purchase the program through Adobe CC. If you don’t have Lightroom and aren’t sure if it is for you, Adobe has a FREE 7-day trial. If you want to take this course and use the 7-day trial from Adobe, I recommend you complete a bunch of lessons first then sign up for the trial when you have a list of tasks and lessons you want to go over in Lightroom. Need help working this out? Just email me.

I’m busy! How will this course save me time?

I get it. My goal is to provide you with actionable information that you can implement right away...not “fluff” that sends you in a million different directions. You’re saving time by joining Lightroom Magic and getting an actual system and workflow to accomplish show-stopping imagery, rather than watching hundreds of editing videos that aren’t tailored in ANY WAY to food photography. All videos and content are intentional and have your time interests at the forefront.
