The Almond Eater on the Gamechangers Podcast 

Gamechangers on Apple PodcastsSubscribe on AndroidIn this episode of the Gamechangers podcast, I’m talking to Erin Alvarez, author of the blog, The Almond Eater and a freelance food photographer. We talk about how to make money from a blog, how to know what to charge for freelance jobs, and how to get started with photography. In this episode, Erin takes us through her process for approaching each blog post, from initial conception to recipe creation, all the way through posting and sharing the final content. She shares the exact resources where she sources those to-die-for backdrops and props you’ve been swooning over on Instagram. I hope you enjoy!
