Food Photographers

Work Environment

Food photographers spend time in their own studio, which is generally well lit and ventilated, especially if the professional develops and prints his or her own pictures (if they use traditional photography). Photo chemicals used in developing and printing can be harsh to work with, but gloves and other protective clothing should prevent the chemicals from irritating the photographer's skin. The widespread adoption of digital photography, however, has almost eliminated photographers’ exposure to these chemicals. When using digital photography, photographers spend time at the computer, editing and otherwise preparing their photos for publication. When shooting, the photographer may work in the studio or may travel to off-site locations.
