Creating effective visual content across multiple social media platforms is serious currency in the foodie world. Kat Lynn – Owner of Foodie Shots states there’s so much more to great food photography than whipping out your smartphone and crossing your fingers.
Foodie Shots knows the importance of professional images. She channels her design experience and her passion for food, into creating images that make people want to lick their screens in anticipation.
“I love food, and I love photography, they are both so emotional,” Kat explained. “My focus is showcasing food in a light designed to delight the senses and reach through the lens to make a connection.”
Confirming her passion is on target, a client returned six months after their first visit as they commented that they needed her to capture their remaining products. Why? They realised the only products that were selling on their website, were those with photos taken by Foodie Shots.
Another customer credits Foodie Shots’ photography, coupled with new label designs by local business, Vigour Graphics, for helping them go from a hobby to a business and achieve international exposure.
That’s the kind of testimonial you really can’t buy and is a true testament to Kat’s skill and enthusiasm. Still, Kat sees Foodie Shots as more than just an opportunity for professional photography.
As COVID has highlighted, digital media platforms are powerful business tools, making unforgettable images a pivotal point of success. Kat understands this and knows by improving your photography skills is one of the easiest ways to not only achieve amazing images, but also to grow your business.
“As a business owner myself, I wear many hats. However, if I can help small businesses to learn some of the photography skills to tell their brand story, then they will benefit, and so will our Toowoomba community.”
With this in mind, Foodie Shots run Photography Skills Workshops in their Highfields studio and online, tailored to help small businesses expand their skill-set and grow their digital footprint.
But no foodie can avoid an opportunity to talk about food, so Kat also runs monthly cooking immersions with local food specialists. Just another chance for her to share her passion and support local business.
Kat feels strongly about her role in the community and has volunteered her time in organisations such as the offical photographer for Tony’s Community Kitchen, An Advisor in the Chamber of Commerce Food and Agri Network and assisting with the Hampton Harvest Festival.
