While everyone on Instagram might think of themselves as food photographers, there are those who actually get paid to travel around the globe and capture decadent delicacies. One of those individuals is Bon Appetit’s Alex Lau, a professional photographer and competitive powerlifter.
One question Lau gets a lot is whether or not he gets to eat the food he photographs. As the video below shows, he does. And he doesn’t shy away from a single bite.
This two-minute video shows Lau doesn’t just eat the wonderful meals he photographs; he does so with gusto, enjoying every bite of food he puts in his mouth—all 33,880 calories worth.
We couldn’t sum it up much better than Lau, himself:
I get to eat, travel and photograph things for a living. What more could I ask for?
