In an increasingly competitive market, more and more companies are turning to professional food photographers. Here’s what to expect.
Food photography is a great way;

1. To entice consumers to buy your brand
2. Draw customers to come into your restaurant
3. Encourage people to try your food
4. Give customers something to aspire to

Good food photography will give you an edge against your competitors, which is why it’s essential to use a professional food photographer. It is not just a case of having a camera, we use a lot of tricks and techniques to achieve stunning results.
We don’t use a camera-mounted flash
For any decent food photographer, camera-mounted flashes are practically off-limits. By using light front on to your food, we would flatten the look of the dish and eliminate any delicate shadows. Using backlighting or natural lighting offers a more dramatic look that make your results stunning.
We will always have a tripod
As professionals, there’s nothing worse than achieving the perfect composition for a shot and having it ruined by a camera shake. All professional food photographers will use a tripod. This way, we can ensure our shots are accurate, clear, crisp and beautiful.
Props can make or break a photograph
By choosing the right props, we can influence the mood and success of the shot. Food photography should also sell an aspirational lifestyle of some kind, so you need your food, brand and props to all convey the same brand message, leading to greater sales and success.
We’ll be moving around the shot
Composition is another way you can really be sold a menu or brand of food. We will be making sure that all cutlery and crockery is in the right place and thinking of various possible compositions. Some dishes will look stunning when photographed from above due to a strong graphic look. We get the composition perfect for each shot so the food is always shown at its best.
