These Black Vegan Food Photographers create the most stunning food photography of their vegan dishes!
If - like me - you're vegan and enjoy looking at beautiful food photography and also want to diversify your Instagram feed, then you've come to the right place to find some talented black vegan food photographers to follow!
Over the last couple of weeks & in light of the Black Lives Matter movement I've seen plenty of posts going around social media about 'Black Vegans to follow'. It's so great to see these resources popping up - and I've personally already spotted a few accounts that I've loved and now follow.
As someone that uses Instagram mainly gets inspired by other food photographers and food bloggers that share styled food imagery, I've been missing these kinds of accounts in these roundups so far and have, therefore. decided to start this resource myself!
Below you can find some of the black vegan food photographers (& also non-black POC) I've come across so far. All their recipes and photography are stunning, so please go ahead and check out their own on their Instagram and own websites.
This list is by no means exhaustive and I will be updating the list as we go along. Enjoy and be warned: Massive food envy coming in! 😉
