The Top 7 Movies Every Food Photographer Should Watch


Looking for some inspiration for your incredible food photography blog? 

Thankfully, there are tons of resources helping us to stay creative with our hobbies and business. Where does your current inspiration come from? I like visual social media channels such as Pinterest and Instagram, books and magazines, favourite places and travel, and of course movies.


Let’s start with Movie 1.

1. Julie & Julia (IMDB 7.0)

Let me ask you a question, is there any movie with Meryl Streep in a leading role you don’t like? Honestly, I can’t think of any. She is amazing, but not only Ms. Streep’s performance alone makes this movie worth watching, but Amy Adams is also wonderful. Based on a true story, an American comedy-drama is about cooking, love, humour and the career of two amazing women. 

Paul Child: What is it you REALLY like to do?

Julia Child: Eat!

2. Chef (IMDB 7.3)

This movie is light-hearted and delicious to watch, so do not watch it on an empty stomach. 

3. The Hundred-Foot Journey (IMDB 7.3)

A good movie. The story shows how important a job is and how it can affect a relationship, much like in real life.

4. Ratatouille (IMDB 8.0)

One of the best movies I have ever seen, kind and positive, for kids and adults. The movie has a great story, characters and humour. One more reason to spend time with family by watching this show, this is definitely an all-time favourite movie.

5. Spinning Plates (IMDB 7.1)

A documentary about three extraordinary restaurants and the incredible people who make them what they are. 

6. Mostly Martha (IMDB 7.2)

This is a well-made and entertaining romantic comedy-drama that shows a lovely sense of behind-the-scenes restaurant choreography. You can definitely find inspiration here.

7. The Lunchbox (IMDB 7.8)

A gentle romantic drama that has a wonderful sense of place and real-life going on. The movie is about two people trying to make a connection in a world of tension and contradiction. “Middle-class housewife is trying once again to add some spice to her marriage, this time through her cooking.”
