Creating stunning food photography with We Eat Together Images by Skyler Burt | Interview by Loupedeck An editorial and commercial food and beverage photographer based out of Los Angeles, New York and Salt Lake City, Skyler Burt is the voice behind We Eat Together, a website and YouTube channel where he aims to help inspire his more than 220,000 subscribers to deepen their passion for food photography and improve their skills along the way. A graduate of the Brooks Institute of Photography, Skyler has traveled extensively and live in Asia and the Middle East, as well as served as a lecturer in studio photography at a university, honing his skills and building his passion for food and beverage photography. Q: Why did you become a photographer and what made you interested in food photography specifically? I first wanted to be a landscape painter, hilariously enough. I hitchhiked around the USA taking snapshots of some of the beautiful scenery that I wanted to paint. I showed the photos to a gallery and they said I should study photography in college. Which I think was a nice way of saying my images sucked and that I should go learn something. So I did just that and majored in photojournalism. I was first interested in travel photography, but I didn’t know much about the industry or at least how to get paid doing it. However, after cold calling and setting up meetings with creative directors, I started getting commercial work with high end resorts and tourism boards and my travel photography slowly started morphing into food photography. Now I’m 100% food photography, yet I’d never turn down an opportunity to travel.
