So much of what you find with commercial food photography is more or less the same. Studio lights glaring, over-styled ingredients to the point of ridiculousness, and exactly what you’d expect to find in the next supermarket mailer to arrive in your mailbox — stale catalog shots failing to tell a story or share an experience.

This post is not about the photographers who create those types of images. This post is about seven photographers who I’ve come across in the last few years who are extremely capable artists and who elevate the art of food photography to a new standard. Their images would be just as well suited framed in a gallery as they would be placed on the pages of a magazine.
