Anja Burgar

Meet your instructor

Hi 🙂 I’m Anja. I live in a small but extremely picturesque country called Slovenia and my official education is in ecology. I love nature and take inspiration from it every day, but I found my calling in food photography.

In my mid-twenties I felt lost and didn’t know what my passion is. After leaving my dead-end job to take time and figure out what I wanted in life, I started my blog Use Your Noodles out of my love of food. Little did I know, that that was exactly how I’d find my passion.

A mix of love for food, cooking and photography got me to work for international clients on a daily basis and being featured in magazines worldwide. Whenever I’m not behind the camera, you’ll find me constantly talking about photography (and you’ll have a hard time stopping me!). I believe knowledge is there to be shared and so I’m sharing mine with this community through in-person and online workshops and now also courses.

I’m happy to have you here with me, so we can learn together.

The first module opens on March 6th. Each Sunday for the next 6 weeks, you’ll get access to a new module.

You will receive one module each week for six weeks. The course is completely self-paced and so are the exercises, with a live Q&A session every other week. After the initial 6 weeks, you’ll have all 6 modules and all the bonuses to go back to whenever you need to.

Yes, the course is there for you whenever you need it. If we stop selling the course you will receive all the materials for download, so you can keep access to them.

Unfortunately, this time around we still don’t have a payment plan. However, we are sure that after finishing the course and doing your homework, you’ll be able to get this money back in no time.

No, you can use any camera or a phone. The course is structured so that you can follow it even with your phone. However, a DSLR will give you the most control over the final photo. That being said, we talk about what to look for when buying a camera, so if you’re in the process of upgrading, we suggest you wait until module 1, before doing that.

I know how you feel. Time is so valuable. Enrolling into Food To Frame Course will save you so many hours of scrolling through YouTube and reading articles. The course is structured so you progress in a specific way.

Yes, for sure. This course was made with students with beginner and intermediate knowledge of light, composition, styling and editing. It is built to give you confidence and get to the next level.

The course is built with beginners and intermediates in mind, however, if you’d like to refresh on the basics you are more than welcome.

No worries. I’m available at [email protected] for any questions or concerns you might have. Shoot me an email and we’ll talk!

Of course! There’s a 30-day money-back guarantee. If after 30 days from receiving the first lessons, implementing the lessons and completing the exercises and assignments of at least two modules you see no progress let me know and I’ll give you a refund.

This refreshing Cucumber and peach salad is the perfect intro to Summer! With some prosciutto, feta cheese, and spicy basil dressing it's a winner!
