Food Photography & Styling

Join top Russian food photographer Anya Pustynnikova & Karl Taylor for a range of in-depth & beautiful food photography lessons. With Anya’s top tips on everything from styling to food preparation this is not to be missed.

Anya Pustynnikova is a terrific food photographer and food stylist based in Moscow, Russia. We caught up with her ahead of her appearance to ask her a few questions about how she got started, some of her favorite pieces of kit, and her take on the current trends in food photography. Read the Q&A with Anya Pustynnikova in our blog.

Take a look at Anya’s work on her website:


    1. Thanks John, I’m very excited about the other shoots we filmed, some real gems of information in lighting and styling. We start editing next week and the first episodes will be appearing this month.

  1. this was very informative. i feel inspired to shoot some food, and then eat it after lol. anna is great!

  2. Fantastic. I am about to start on my HND Photography at college and have found I am really leaning towards shooting food. Your tutorials etc are going to be such a help, its not a subject that you find such in depth info on. Thank you Karl and Anya.

  3. Any more news of when the other August food courses are due? Caught the live course was great, eager to see the others 🙂

  4. Hi Karl,

    In the photograph that appears on the live show page, there seems to be a shadow cast which mimics light shining through a tree/leaves – how would this effect be recreated?

    All the best,


    1. Hi Sarah, if you watch the live show you will see how it’s done, it’s also in one of the other food shoots. Cheers Karl.
