Hi Everyone

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi Everybody,

 

I'm excited to join this community and I look forward to learning about industry trends and tools.

 

By way of introduction, I'm a professional food photographer and I help catering companies, chefs, and restaurants increase their bottom line with mouth-watering food photography. It's an exciting and challenging job!

 

My love for cooking started a few years ago as I started to photograph food. I'm a serious foodie and I love cooking just as much as I love to photograph food. There are so many talented culinary professionals and I feel it's a duty of mine to bring their food to amazing light and to show the world their work through images. Images are a very powerful medium!

 

I'm currently half-way into the culinary program at Saddleback Community College and I have learned so much about cooking, food costing, recipe development, and much more. 

 

My goals after school is to split my time in half---working in the kitchen part-time, and the other half photographing delicious food for hospitality professionals. 

 

 

Thanks for reading,

:) Rob

Thanks Nicko and I'd be happy to submit a review for others.

 

So, Saddleback College offers 4 different Culinary Arts certificates:

 

Catering

Advanced Culinary Arts

Foods Program

Nutrition

 

These certificate programs can take as long as 1-2 years to complete.  If you'd like to transfer to a 4 year University to get your B.S. degree in Culinary Arts, you can do that as well.

 

If you're looking for an extremely affordable and hands-on culinary experience, I highly recommend any of the culinary arts programs through Saddleback College. Lisa Inlow who is a full-time culinary instructor and department co-chair at Saddleback College recently informed our class that the Saddleback College Culinary Arts program placed 100% of its students last year with full-time jobs.

 

So, the success rate is high and there is a HUGE demand for culinary professionals.
