7. Laine Torres
Laine Torres is a Minneapolis-based photographer with a key differentiating feature from the others on this list.

While her work varies heavily, Torres primarily specializes in commercial photoshoots and business branding. This can mean many things, from headshots and event photography to product highlights – and yes, food photography. You can find samples of her food photography work on her blog, though it’s worth noting that food photography isn’t her specialty but rather just one of her many services.
