Why a FOODPHOTO FESTIVAL?
“If you can shoot food, you can shoot anything.” (shutterbug.com). Professionals consider food photography one of the most difficult specialties to master. The field generates more publications, greater sales and a larger audience then any other photographic discipline. In spite of this, names of the photographers remain mostly unknown.
Who will participate in the FOODPHOTO FESTIVAL?
For three days, food photography professionals from all over the world will join together. Professional photographers and food stylists will be in attendance, as well as agents, editors, publishers, advertising agencies, art directors and professionals from the vast gastronomic sector.
“We are providing a rare opportunity for people to meet others in their field, interchange experiences, discuss trends, discover new products and find partners for the realization of new projects” explains Günter Beer.
Conferences and Workshops
From 22nd to 25th of October, the days will be filled with a program of conferences and workshops. Speakers include Michelin Star Kiin Kiin owner Henrik Yde and photojournalist Steven Achiam who will talk about their collaboration during the creation of the award winning cookbook noir “Dead and Fermented”.
