I think I can safely say that a majority of our population would prefer to ‘live to eat’ rather than to ‘eat to live’. If you’re from the first category, this article celebrates all that brings saliva to our mouths and always leave us wanting more and more.
Here are ten Instagram accounts of food photographers, stylists and chefs that provide us with a food photography bible that we can happily follow.
1. Nora Eisermann & Laura Mutherius ( @_food stories_)
The duo based in Berlin are both food stylists, photographers and of course, cake lovers. They are always looking for inspiration around them and they make sure that all their photos tell story, no matter how simple that tale maybe. Most of their food featured on their website and Instagram account are gluten free and vegetarian. Some are even low on histamine and are vegan. Now, who can say no to something that looks this good and is also super delicious and healthy?
2. Paola ( @cravingsinamsterdam)
Paola is a recipe developer, photographer and a food stylist. She has maintained her website like a travel food blog and she makes it a point to take her followers through her journey in life and her never-ending food endeavours.

3. Colette Dike (@fooddeco)
The ‘Food Deco’ is a project run by Colette who is based in the Netherlands. A food photographer, stylist and a cookbook author, she believes that food must be easy to make and must ALWAYS be super delicious (even if it not always healthy). She used to work for home decor magazines before this, and so she knows her way through various appealing aesthetic senses. This helps her create masterpieces that are very different from the ones we rather clumsily whip up together at home. You can check out her website here.
4. Ashley Alexander (@gatherandfeast)
Obsessed with the rustic feel, Ashley (currently based in Melbourne, Australia) often puts together her food with vintage cutlery, rustic wooden boards and beautifully handcrafted dishes (which she claims are her treasure). As a food photographer, she loves playing with colour, texture and lighting, thus making the photo so captivating. She also, recently put together a recipe ebook that is sure to leave you begging for more.
