How much food do we need to bring to the shoot?’

If you’ve talked to the food stylist or we’ve agreed to you’re in charge of bringing the food for the shoot, It’s usually a good idea to bring way more than you think we might need.  This is usually a food stylist question, but from experience, 5-6 times the amount that will appear in the shot, is usually the rule of thumb.  It’s better to have too much than not enough.  You’ll be spending a bunch of money for the food photography, so you don’t want to ruin it all by not having enough food on hand.  The food cost is usually a very small part of your budget and most of the time, you can take the unused food back when you leave.
