Founded in Munich, Germany by photographer Pete A. Eising, StockFood specialized in the art of food from the very beginning. In addition to a renowned food photography studio, Studio Eising, the company initially offered exclusively Rights-managed images. In 2002 the offering was expanded to include Royalty-free images, and in 2008 videos were added, together with an in-house production studio. In 2011, features – complete articles including images and text – became available too. Today, an in-house editorial team can supply appropriate text for all images, videos, feature articles and recipes.
Whether modern, classical, conceptual, artistic or extravagant – content and productions by StockFood can be found today in high-quality print publications, mobile apps, advertisements, books and calendars worldwide.
In addition to the Munich headquarters, sales offices were founded in Kennebunk, Maine (USA) in 1996 and in London, England (UK) in 2007. Worldwide StockFood has approximately 60 employees, 45 of whom are based at headquarters. In addition to these three main offices, our collections are visible in over 50 additional countries thanks to a wide international distribution network.
