Simple concepts explained well with a good paced flow There was no discussion on actual settings which was great as this kept it conceptual rather than technical.

Really nice work with the light, thanks!
There were sound bites of useful information that I can implement today. Like VSCO, an app for photo editing and shooting images in a square field vs shooting vertically. I've already downloaded the VSCO app and look forward to using it on my project.

Marte Marie Forsberg

Food and Lifestyle Photographer

Marte Marie Forsberg is a self-taught food and lifestyle photographer from Norway. After having lived in many beautiful and exciting places around the world during her studies in fashion design and art history, she found her tool: the camera. 

She moved back to Norway and rediscovered her cultural roots and heritage, taking great delight in exploring the local food scene. This inspired her to begin her journey full time as a visual story teller with food taking the centre stage.

Today Marte Marie works for food and lifestyle magazines around the world and has a varied list of clients in the food and fashion industries. She regularly collaborates with brands on location and in her charming little cottage studio in the English countryside that she now calls home.It's been a fun and fast-paced journey since she started her company as a freelance food and lifestyle photographer not too many years ago, and she loves new assignments and work that pushes her to dig deeper, to grow and challenge herself as an artist.
