Frequently Asked Questions about Creative Food Photography

How do I get started in food photography?

There are several things you can do to start off your food photography career including buying a camera, practice photographing ingredients in your kitchen, starting and publishing a blog, networking and connecting with a food stylist and most importantly showcasing your work.

What is editorial food photography?

Editorial food photography creates aesthetic images of food that is different from advertising photography. Rather than encouraging people to buy, the photos aim to simply look pretty where the food is a prop in the photo. You can learn more about this from one of our creative food photography classes mentioned above.

What equipment do I need for food photography?

The most important piece of equipment to mention is a camera, but you don’t need the very best equipment on the market to take some great photos. Get started with the basic camera, lenses and a black and white foam board to assist with lighting. You can see more in our lighting food photography class.
