At the beginning of this year, we asked some of our favorite women in sports photography to shout out who they admire in the industry.
The outpouring of support for women working behind the lens was incredible. And now, we want to shine a light on more inspiring women photographers.
This time, we’re dedicating our shout-outs to women in the world of food photography.
We’ve collected heartfelt shout-outs from food photographers who inspire us. Get ready for nonstop mouth-watering photos of culinary delicacies, home-cooked meals and baked goods in your Instagram feed.
Who are the women in food photography who inspire you? Share your shout-outs in the comments, or tag @getlibris on Twitter and Instagram.
Katie Cornett @katie_cornett is a Los Angeles-based food and destination photographer with a knack for capturing the close-up details in every bite. She’s shouting out…
I have admired Renee since I first met her at a workshop and recognized her as being as much a caring and involved member of the LA food photography community as she is a gifted visual storyteller. She seems to be connected to everyone I meet, whether at a professional event, mixer, or job. Every time I run into her, I learn something from her.
I first met Ali when I assisted her years ago after a colleague couldn’t take the job. I immediately knew I’d learn a ton from this hard-working, creative woman. She takes care in everything that she does, hustles like crazy, and is the most detail-oriented human on the planet. I am continually inspired by Ali, and honored to work with, for, and alongside her in this industry.
I don’t know Erica personally, but rather came across her profile on Instagram some time ago, and have loved watching her grow and expand as a photographer. Her work is bright, colorful, fun and so appetizing! She captures a story and uses light in such a beautiful way. I get excited for her when I see a new campaign she has landed or test shoot she’s done. Her images are beautiful, and I hope to keep seeing her work (and her name) cross my path!
Darina Kopcok @darinakopcokphoto is freelance food and still life photographer based in Vancouver, Canada. She draws heavily on her fine art training to create evocative images with a distinct sense of mood and place. Darina’s shouting out…

There are so many female food photographers I admire – and female photographers in general. These women stand out for me because of their ability to create powerful stories with even the most minimalist compositions. I don’t know them personally, but I’ve been following their work for years and have been so inspired by it. I know that it takes a lot of creativity, hard work and dedication to excellence to achieve what these women have in their photography.
I have been shooting professionally for a few years now, but I feel there is always so much to learn, especially in this digital age. Yet the one constant a photographer needs is a keen understanding of light. There are so many elements that make up a successful photograph, but lighting is the way I believe one photographer really distinguishes her work from another. The incredible use of light that these women display in their imagery is such a huge inspiration to me, and has really helped me focus on what’s important and to refine my goals in terms of my own photography.
Food photography used to be this weird little niche in photography that didn’t hold much appeal. The images looked overly perfect and obviously lit.
The advent of blogging and Instagram has really revolutionized the way food photography is seen.
These women, as well as so many other women behind the camera have had a huge influence on the modern aesthetics of food photography, which has a more natural and candid feel.
I have such respect for these women, and all these women behind the lens that contribute their craft and vision to the world of food and have inspired a whole generation of women to follow their dreams and make a living in photography.
Corina Daniela Obertas @corinadanielaobertas is a creative food photographer based in Rome, Italy. She loves experimenting, learning, creating new things and working with others who have the same passions. Corina’s shouting out…

- Anna Pustynnikova @anna.pustynnikova_photo
- Joanie Simon @thebiteshot
- Christina Peters @thefoodshooter
I love Christina Greve‘s capacity to see and capture the beauty, and the locations she chooses are absolutely amazing. She creates the right atmosphere. She has a very creative mind.
I find Anna‘s compositions fascinating. I love the way she builds the set and takes care of every detail. I think she has a lot of patience and flexibility.
I think all know Joanie and yes, I follow her too and I am conquered by her vivacity and continuous desire to do and to explain. She is really a woman who never stops. She creates great pictures.
I love the light in the images created by Christina Peters. She has excellent skills and she’s a great teacher, too.

She is also pragmatic about life and how destiny has delivered her challenges and how she has managed them. Very similar to the food allergy journey.
So, Joanie is my choice.
