Food photography is one of the leading disciplines in professional photography and has more specialised publications, more sales and a larger audience than either fashion or news photography.
Food photography is synonymous with cutting-edge technology. It is a pioneer in using the most innovative potential of cameras, lighting and post-production to create new images boasting amazing technical and creative quality. In this respect it resembles its forerunners, the mediaeval painters, who in their day were geniuses of colouring, composition and spatial representation.
So that everyone can discover the artistic diversity and creative energy that this discipline brings to cooking. There is no other realm of human culture that is as influenced by photography as food.

So who are we?

FOODPHOTO FESTIVAL is an initiative of the German Food Photographer Günter Beer. Together with Event Producer Manon Straver and a team of enthusiastic collaborators the festival was created in 2010. The first 2 editions took place in Tarragona Spain, where the tone was set for a beautiful event that brings together professionals from all over the world to celebrate and learn about the art of Food Photography.
