Celebrate restaurant photo month with us in July

Google Moderator

We know Local Guides love sharing restaurant photos on Google Maps, so we’re dedicating July to celebrating local food culture through photography. All month, we’ll be spotlighting great shots by Local Guides, as well as sharing tips and lessons from top food photographers.


eat-like-a-local-email-950-475 (2).png


We want to feature your favorite places to eat and shoot photos. Share your best shots on social using #LocalGuides #onGoogleMaps and each week, we’ll post some of our favorites here on Connect and on our social channels (make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.) Tip for week one: We’ll be looking for awesome breakfast photos! We’ll also share lists of favorite Local Guides restaurants, coffee bars, and sweets shops around the world.


You’ve told us that you want to highlight your favorite restaurants and get more views on your photos, so we’ve asked a slate of talented food photographers to share their best techniques and insights. To start, our Photo Lead, Anna Dickson, has put together a post on 5 easy ways to take great food photos.



Nothing beats a hands-on demo, so we’ll be livestreaming workshops each week from popular restaurants around the world. First up: a lesson in advanced breakfast photography from @missfoodieproblems, whose pics of golden doughnuts and flaky croissants have attracted more than 87,000 followers on Instagram. On Saturday, July 8, she’ll join a group of Local Guides (who’ve shared lots of photos on Google Maps) for a meet-up at top-rated breakfast destination Sqirl in L.A. Watch live on our social channels, and be sure to bring all your questions about how to shoot and share food photos.

There’s much more on the way! Stay tuned for details about livestream lessons on shooting lunch in Delhi (July 15), desserts and sweets in Paris (July 19), and a night out in Bangkok (July 29).

Awesome @LuisRG!!! Signed up for the Los Angeles one, looking forward to attending!


Heads up, when I registered it clearly states it's for LG's only, and you can't bring a guest. However the final pop-up window conflicts this message by saying "Invite friends!".

Good to know you'll be there @JR_Curley! The workshop is just for Local Guides, yes, but what you saw was probably the standard "share information about this meet-up" pop-up :)

Nice Idea. Hopefully I don´t forget to shoot ;)

Delicious. Breakfast food week 1, I would presume it would extend to lunch, dessert, then dinner in the following weeks? It's exciting.
