Ever wonder what it would be like to be a food photographer for a top-end magazine? Spending a week in the life of food photographer Alex Lau might give you a taste of what’s involved. Just beware, you might gain a few pounds just watching it:
Food photography is something just about everyone with a cell phone does these days, but few people get paid to do it. To get the job, Lau started out as an intern at a major food magazine and then spent a fair amount of time going from restaurant to restaurant on his own, building up his portfolio. Once he felt his portfolio was ready he applied, and voila, he’s got a dream job.
“I get to eat, travel, and photograph things for a living. What more could I ask for?”
If you love food, this might very be your dream job. Just make sure you’ve got some way to burn off all of those calories!
