Food photography can get expensive. Not only do you need the right camera equipment, but you also need a variety of props to make your images stand out. From different backgrounds to plates and dishes, things can quickly get out of hand. And that’s before you factor in the cost of the food you’re shooting.
Of course, professional commercial food shoots generally have big budgets to spend. They will often be able to hire prop stylists, food stylists and more to help run the shoot. However, if you’re just starting out or working with smaller clients, how can you make sure that you don’t waste food? In this video, food photographer Joanie Simon shares her favourite reusable foods for photo shoots to help your budget stretch that little bit further.
