Recipe photography can be a tough and time consuming, but necessary part of running a successful food blog. People eat with their eyes and mouth watering photography is what helps you stand out in an extremely competitive market.
There comes a time in every food bloggers career, that they have too many balls in the air and they can’t keep juggling them all without dropping some or handing them off. Outsourcing and hiring a professional food photographer for your blog is a worthy investment and a time saving win.
Recipe photography is time consuming. It’s a very specific niche of food photography and it requires you to be an expert in photography, composition, lighting, cooking, plating, styling, and editing. This is a lot to take care of, especially considering it is only one component of creating a new recipe.
You can’t do it all forever, and that’s ok, it’s a good problem to have. If you are at this point, and you feel that you are moments away from blogger burnout, then it’s time to consider investing in your business and outsourcing the parts of your blog that are keeping you from creating high quality content, spending time with loved ones, and doing what you love.
If you are still unsure whether you should hire a professional food blog photographer, here are 5 major benefits of outsourcing the recipe photography for your food blog.
1. Saves Time With Faster Turn Around
Working with a professional food blog photographer will undoubtedly save you time. When I work with my clients, I take care of the shopping, food preparation, cooking, plating, styling, photography, and editing. Because it takes place in my home studio, the process is completely hands off for the client and when all is said and done you receive polished, edited photos, ready to drop straight into your content.
As the client your time is free to spend on other aspects of your business, hanging out with family, or creating new high quality content your audience will love. You’ve added hours back to your day with nothing more than a simple investment in your business.

2. Guarantees Beautiful High Quality Photos
When you outsource your food blog photography, you are working with a professional. This is what they do and their only focus is highlighting your recipe through beautiful mouthwatering photography that you will love. A dedicated photographer isn’t distracted by the other aspects of your business, a photographer wants to make clients happy by creating the most beautiful, and highest quality photos possible.
If you have done your homework, studied their portfolio, and set expectations beforehand, you can rest easy knowing that every photo you receive will be stunning, well lit, and well composed.
3. You Can Focus On Your Strengths
When your time is not consumed focusing and worrying about recipe photography, your mind is free to concentrate on core business activities. SEO, marketing, community engagement, recipe development, and keyword research no longer need to take a back seat.
By hiring a food blog photographer you finally have the time and capacity to concentrate on what you love so you can grow your passion for food into the business of your dreams.
4. Controlled Costs
Professional photography might seem expensive, but compare it to the cost of high end photography equipment, props, software, and the time it takes to learn how to use the equipment and become proficient in photography, the investment starts to make sense.
When you outsource photography you no longer need to worry about purchasing and maintaining equipment, purchasing software, photography education, and the other unexpected costs that arrive when you are trying to be your own photographer. At the end of the day, buying all that equipment doesn’t guarantee you get beautiful blog worthy photos, but working with a food blog photographer does.
When you hire a professional food blog photographer the price is determined beforehand and it’s in a contract, it’s predictable, there are no surprise costs. The lifetime value of a successful blog post is high, much higher than the amount you invest in professional photography.
