Hi, new friend! I'm Sam!
I’m a food photographer, blogger, and educator.
I teach food bloggers & photographers how-to level up their food photography skills.
I’m a (mostly) self-taught photographer, but I have since earned my bachelors degree in multimedia production and my graduate degree in teaching & learning with emerging technologies.
Which is just a fancy way of saying, “I know how to take food photos, and I can teach you how to do it, too!”
To make all aspects of food photography feel
effortless & to help you feel confident in your work.

sometimes... you gotta pivot!
This website didn’t always aim to educate. Before the transition, this site was Sweet Remedy, a baking blog that strived to provide epic dessert recipes to the Internet.
I started teaching digital photography to college kids by accident. It was because of that real life teaching experience that I decided to pivot from food blogger to educator and create this website. I wanted to use my teaching ability to discuss my favorite topic: Food photography!
I want to share with you everything that I’ve learned since 2009 when I started to create content for the web!
And if you’re here for a recipe, that’s cool too. I still have some of those. Only the best ones!
i'm excited, what's next?
I'm excited too! There are a few paths you can follow next. Choose your own adventure below!
Some fun (& random) facts
When I’m not preheating my oven to 350° or taking food photos, you can find me watching copious amounts of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, playing video games, eating donuts, and biking or hiking all around the Hudson Valley, with my husband and rescue pup, Penny (named after Felicia Day's character in Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.)
