If you count yourself amongst the 1 billion users already using Instagram then you will know it’s full of people taking pictures of their food in the hope of being the next big thing.

Unfortunately, most of this is just filling your feed up with bad shots of avocado toast, but the good news is there are some amazing food photographers on Instagram if you know where to look.

Read on to find out who deserves those double taps this year.


We Eat Together is run by Skyler Burt, a food photographer based in Los Angeles who has shot for the likes of Forbes, Lonely Planet and Canon.

He has an instantly recognisable style of lovely dark, muted tones which look great on his Instagram feed which also features a few behind the scenes shots so you can see how he has put the shots together.

He also has a blog over on his website here where he offers some amazing food photography tips and tricks.


He counts the likes of Jamie Oliver amongst his clients and is head judge for the Food Photographer of the Year Award, so David Loftus must know a thing or two about food photography.

His Instagram is a great mix of light and airy imagery mixed with a healthy dose of behind the scenes and shots from his travels.



Dennis the Prescott is an inspiration for anybody who is looking to achieve big things with their food photography but with a limited budget.

All the food on his channel is home cooked and he has even gone as far as to release a cookbook with the recipes he has been photographing, proof that a good idea combined with a side dish of skill is a good recipe for success.

He’s also got a great Youtube channel which offers loads of tips and tricks for budding food photographers which can be found here

Aran’s work “focuses on the emotional component of food and everyday life through visual stories” and has been featured in the likes of The New York Times, Vogue and Conde Nast Traveller.
