A simple girl usually covered with almond flour. 😅

I´m Laura Kuklase, a dreamer from a small country called Estonia. Usually, you can find me in the kitchen covered with almond flour. I also need to apologise for not being word-perfect in English.

No, …

… I didn’t graduate from culinary school.

Instead, I studied law for five years and got my master’s degree. However, photography & kitchen has always been my happy place. 

HOW A LAWYER BECAME A FOOD photographer? 🤔

I have no idea. These two don’t go together very well. Probably it happened because I’m in love with photography for 10 years & cooking since childhood.

While I was still studying law and working in the law office, then I also worked part-time as a food photographer. In addition, I took photography courses at university. 

Still, my heart has always been on food photography. After working together with clients & magazines all over the world, I decided that it was time to go full-time on food photography.

Since I work as a food photographer, then readers kept asking for my food photography tips. For that reason, I started to blog about this topic as well. For my surprise, I quickly managed to get to the top awarded food photography blogs. As a result, you can find my food photography thoughts all over the place. I just answer to most common questions I get.

 

Because my readers highly insisted, then I wrote an eBook about 21-day food photography challenge about food composition & styling.

 

Photography Progress by Healthy Laura Food Photography & Food Styling
HOW DID YOU GOT STARTED WITH FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY?
Special gift …… in one condition! 

My interest in photography began 10 years ago when I got my first DSLR camera. It was a Nikon D90 which I got as a gift from my lovely father. I’m a very lucky girl. 

It was a fantastic gift, but the only condition was that I had to take 200 different images every month. We are still laughing that I work as a food photographer since I have to shoot those images.
