A great food photographer will know all the techniques and tricks required to show off the colours, textures and ingredients in your dishes and make your food stand out from the crowd.

Not sure how to recognise a great food photographer? Have a look at their portfolio – do the images make your mouth water? Are they enticing and unique? If so, you’ve found someone who knows how to do their job well.

Here are three reasons your business needs a great food photographer:

To entice customers


If you run a restaurant, bar or cafe, you know how important your menu is when it comes to enticing customers. Your menu is a first impression of your food, and professional photographs that highlight the vibrancy and appeal of your dishes go a long way when it comes to persuading potential diners. A great menu is one of the best ways to attract guests of all kinds to your establishment. Everyone – regardless of language or culture – can understand a photograph, and most diners like to see what they will be eating before they order.

The photos on your menu also allow you some control over what your customers will order, as the dishes that are featured most prominently (in photos) are likely to be the most persuasive.

To show off your food


A great food photographer will celebrate the textures, colours, shapes, traits and overall deliciousness of your dishes. Once you’ve had your food photographs taken, you can use them to show off your food on your website, in your menu, in advertisements and on your social media channels.

Professional photographers know the ins and outs of photography. They know how to represent your food in the best way possible using masterful manipulation of depth of field, focus, lighting, composition, staging and more. They have the technical knowledge and creativity to give you images that will convey the heart, intention and quality of your meals.

To represent your commitment to quality


This one is pretty simple. High-quality photographs represent a high-quality business. Investing some time and budget into unbeatable photographs shows your customers that you are committed to the best.
