Welcome to Food Photography Club

Submit your very best food photos for review.

Please read the rules before submitting photos!

Group Description

Meet the most talented food photographers and their inspirational food photos. The Food Photography Club was created by a group of artists to share their best food photos.

The CLUB should give members also the freedom to join a conversation about food photography in general, trends in food photography and food styling, composition of food photographs and lighting.

You DO NOT have to be a professional food photographer to post. But your photos DO need to show regard for composition, lighting, white balance, focus (and other photographic elements) as well as food styling and staging (either yours or another person's). Please do not post 'point-and-shoot photos from your lunch' or restaurant “snapshots” to the pool; "on location" photos (restaurant, in public places) are only accepted in this group as PLANNED shootings, where the location is part of the composition (and food is the focus).

Lastly, our members strive to be helpful and positive but also honest when giving feedback. Please be open minded about other people's opinions. They are, after all, just that: opinions.

Every photo is being reviewed before it will go to the pool. And yes, photos will be declined, if they do not meet the reviewer's (host) expectations of a high quality food photo. And no, reasons will not be given for time constraints. By the number of photos it would just take too much time. Sorry, but it is just not possible.


Read the Group Guidelines (Rules) carefully.

It is strongly suggested to read the thread on The art of critique and discussion culture in this group

Everyone has a different view on things. To bring these different views together is a central goal of this group. If you don't want others¹ opinions on your photos, don't post photos in the food photography club pool.

(4) Critique
Members should always try to give a reason for their comment. WHY is a shot good, WHY do you like something (or think it doesn¹t work). This is more helpful to the person receiving the feedback.
