Your coach

My name is Luay Ghafari and I am a published author and photographer, food blogger, content creator, and entrepreneur.

I have been photographing food for over a decade and have worked with amazing brands including Vitamix, Kubota, Daily Harvest, Metro Ontario, and others.

And guess what? Most of the photos I share on social media and on my blog are captured on my iPhone!

Find me on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest, or reach out to me by email if you have any questions!

Learn how to use your smartphone camera, the right way!

No complicated equipment or expensive cameras and lenses are necessary. This program is built around the camera you already own and probably use every day! The one in your pocket!

  • I didn't hestiate the moment Luay launched this course. I took his gardening masterclass and have been a long time follower. The ebook has so much information, and photos and has really inspired me on my own journey.

    - Jessie

  • I am trying to improve my skills so that I can be a better food blogger. I don't have the time (or money really) to invest in a big slr camera now so I want to learn how to use my iphone and this course has been so helpful. I highly recommend it.
