Posted on 6/27/2014 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Fresh, brash and outspoken. With their uninhibited photographic style and unbridled joy of experimentation, food bloggers have conquered a huge fan community on the internet. No wonder even the traditional media are rolling out the red carpet for the new stars. Food bloggers get their own columns, produce cookbook best-sellers and operate cooking shows for an audience of millions. The most interesting among them are now at the center of a new blog where the food image agency StockFood once again lives up to its reputation as a trendsetter.

Under the motto “you are what you crEATe” ( StockFood presents the shooting stars of the blogger scene. Their trendy images can also be exclusively licensed through StockFood where media and advertising clients have access to the most amazing images from numerous food blogs.

Each day there is a new entry and each entry includes a refreshing portrait of the blogger, a link to their blog and some of their most compelling creations.

Among the first entries StockFood presents the 18-year old blogger Izy Hossack from London with her original blog “Top with Cinnamon” as well as two German photographers: Susanne Schanz writes a blog called "La Petite Cuisine,”  and Elisabeth Cölfen is known for "food: photo: love." An interview with Australian photographer Tanya Zouev introduces the international blogger scene. Her internet diary “The Cook who knew nothing” was a finalist in the Best Australian Blogs 2013. U.S. American Eva Kosmas also pays a visit with her blog “Adventures in Cooking,” similar to Izy Hossack’s blog, this was also short listed for the Saveur Food Blog Awards 2013.

In addition to newcomers to the internet, “you are what you crEATe” also includes professional food photographers who introduce their own food blogs at StockFood. One of the salient factors of all the blogs are their compelling recipes, peppered with personal reflections and spiced by lovingly reported gastro-travel experiences. This creates a fascinating cross-section of modern, high-class food photography.

All images are available at StockFood and can be used for a wide range of professional applications. In addition, "you are what you crEATe" keeps you abreast of the latest news and inspires readers with great recipe ideas.

For more than three decades StockFood has been the leading agency for culinary images, features and videos. StockFood trend scouts tirelessly search out new styles in the field of food photography. Food blogs are the most recent development in this fast moving industry. "Perfectly Imperfect," a natural, unaffected photography style, has emerged and imbues images with unprecedented freshness and spontaneity.
