Effective techniques that take minutes not hours.
Retouching wasn’t difficult and didn’t take you hours, or even days! You could easily remove the ugly parts without losing texture.
You could create what you had in your mind and didn’t have to settle for something you love less.
You didn’t have to pay someone to retouch your images for you, but instead you could charge your clients more for a premium retouching service.
Your images weren’t rejected because of oil spots you couldn’t remove.
You could easily clone the whipped cream on top of your hot chocolate and make the colour of your egg yolks consistent.
Make an image look flawless.
“ My images were rejected due to distractions and oil spots I couldn’t remove.”
“No one might notice, but not being able to remove that hair is driving me crazy .”
“I tried to change it in Lightroom, but it looked worse !”

I pitched my first product photography job just knowing I was going to enrol in the course, Rachel’s courses are that good. The course allowed me to produce a professional quality shot and the final photo exceeded the clients expectations.
From zero Photoshop skills to getting paid to take this photo, the course didn’t let me down.
Retouching Food Photography helped make the daunting task of learning Photoshop both easy and enjoyable. Rachel and Matt are the perfect instructors for this course.
Thanks to them, I can process images faster and fix what previously seemed like un-fixable issues in an image in a matter of minutes.
This class helped me take my retouching game to the next level. I’ve been working in Photoshop for a long time and no stranger to the tools. But this class showed me how to use the tools in ways I was unaware. Now these methods are ones I practice every day – like using a low flow in my clone stamp, navigating the “patch” tool, and color range selection.
My methods of retouching my food photography are better and I’m faster at it. I’m thrilled I took this class!
Stylist & Photographer

Product & Food Photographer
Retouching Food Photography has helped me extend a background for a client image (in less than 5 minutes!) , change the colors on a product without affecting the rest of the image, and I always, always come back to it before I make a composite (the plate trick is amazing!). Like when you need a busy tablescape scene and you only have 2 models!!
Rachel & Matt’s instruction are clear and concise and their knowledge of Photoshop is amazing! I strongly recommend it!
Photographer & Stylist
I joined the Retouching Food Photography course to improve my Photoshop skills for client work. The quality of my photos improved exponentially from learning techniques such as removing reflections and blemishes.
It came in handy when photographing glassware for clients product shots. It saved the day!
I recently took the Retouching Food Photography course with Rachel and Matt and loved every minute! I had no idea how how many techniques I could apply to my post production work to enhance my images!
The lessons are well thought out and the examples are clearly explained with simple directions on how to apply it to your own work. I also love that I can go back to a specific lesson whenever I need a little reminder on various techniques.
I was somewhat familiar with perhaps two tools in Photoshop and didn’t even know how to use them in the most effective ways. It was a combination of guessing and brute force to retouch my images.
I learned a lot of new techniques but learning to remove reflections effectively was probably the most valuable. Learning to use content-aware fill and the clone stamp effectively has saved me so much time and stress. And I’ve already been able to to apply those new skills to some client images on a recent shoot!
Removing the reflections of the glasses from that wine bottle was probably one of my proudest moments.
I have tried so many times to learn Photoshop, but it was so overwhelming that I would always quit. After taking Retouching Food Photography, using Photoshop now makes sense and I actually really enjoy it! It has been the best investment for my photography journey.
I’ve gone from not being able to open a picture in Photoshop, to merging images together, cleaning up photos and much more.
The first thing I rushed to watch was her tutorial on Creating GIFs in Photoshop. I’ve always loved the way that GIFs literally bring an image to life and struggled to create them seamlessly. I didn
