How long does it take to photograph each meal or food product?

How much does food photography cost?

Most food photography costs between $125-$250 when you book your service through Airtasker. But this could cost more or less, depending on the number of items you need photographed, the amount of styling you need, and how much time the job will take to complete.

What does food photography include?

Food photography is usually booked for marketing promotions, whether social media, menus, or advertising campaigns. But in some cases, photos of food may be used as content for blogs, magazines, or books. Here are some of the most common food photography services and what you can expect from each:


Cafe & restaurant photography

Restaurant and cafe photography involves working with a chef or in-house cook to prepare meals and snacks from the menu and photograph them. Your photography professional will usually bring an assortment of backdrops, plates, cutlery, and accessories to style the shot. They’ll take photos up close, focusing on the details and ingredients in the meal. They may also take some wider angle shots, capturing the table setting, restaurant or cafe surroundings, and even the behind-the-counter staff to help tell your story.


Food photography & styling

Food photography and styling is a popular service for retailers, wholesalers, cafes, magazines, recipe books, and bloggers. Your photographer will spend extra time and effort styling your food before taking any photos. They’ll use textures, contrast colours, and movement to tell a story about your food and make sure it looks as delicious and interesting as possible.


Food photography for Instagram

One type of photography that’s become increasingly popular for bloggers and businesses is Instagram content. These days, more brands are seeing the value in professional photography, over amateur smartphone photography. Your photography professional will make sure they’re familiar with your brand’s style and Instagram feed, if you have a set aesthetic. They’ll create a series of shots that work for the platform, including flatlays, angled shots, and behind-the-scenes shots of your cooking process. They’ll edit the photos after the shoot, crop them to square (or portrait if for Instagram stories), adjust the levels, and use a filter to help your photos work well together in the feed.
