    Food Truck Photography
  • Checklist & tips for your profile photos

    • Food truck: Get close. Get far. Get high and low. Get inside. With people. Without people. Serve food. Stand in front.
    • The food: Use a good mix of close-ups, cooking, serving. People eating your food. Smiling and holding your food.
    • Atmosphere: Use decorations to set the scene. Chalkboards, string lights, flags, your menu, your logo, your name. Think colors. Smoke. Fire. Cute tables. Old chairs. Things that capture your atmosphere.
    • Natural light: Use bright daylight. Sun behind you beaming on your food and truck. All cameras work better in daylight. Filters can fix lighting and colors. Dark photos are hard to fix.
    • Good camera: Use your smart phones to capture lots of moments. Phone cameras are easy and in your hand most of the time. Trade food with a photographer or pay toget some fabulous shots to use all year, all the time.
    • Setting: Park your truck a beautiful spot. In a field, on the water, at sunset, on the beach. For lively photos, use parties, weddings, festivals. Ask your guest for permission or for their best pics.
