Even when a group of people come from 27 different countries, they still have a common language: the language of imagery! Image Professionals recently held a major summit at its offices for its international partners.
For StockFood the gardening season starts at the beginning of the year. Since 1 January 2017, Burda’s wholly-owned subsidiary has been responsible for the exclusive distribution of images by Friedrich Strauss Gartenbildagentur, a leading German agency for garden pictures. It has also launched a new website.
“No one is more familiar with marketing niche collections than StockFood. I am convinced that my pictures will be in the best of hands and look forward to the years ahead”,
says Friedrich Strauss, founder of the agency, welcoming the cooperation.
“We are pleased to be able to include Friedrich Strauss Gartenbildagentur, an outstanding top collection, in our portfolio and market it across the globe. “Friedrich Strauss stands for unique garden photography. Our aim will be to inspire many quality-conscious image users by providing them with Friedrich Strauss’ new productions, and to further consolidate the market position”,
stresses Martin Skultety, director of StockFood.
In demand all over the world
The database consisting of more than 100 000 images mainly includes photographs by renowned garden and plant photographer Friedrich Strauss, as well as works by other professional garden photographers. The collection focuses on the topics garden, balcony & terrace, home plants & floristry and practical gardening. It also includes step-by-step guides. The top-class images are not only published in German gardening publications, such as magazines by the leader of the garden magazine market BurdaHome. They are also used across the world and can be found both on Japanese magazine covers and in Brazilian school books.
New online appearance
The new website developed by StockFood offers image users intelligent search filters packed with special features for looking successfully for the perfect subject. It is now possible to buy the images online. Soon the garden image agency will also be launched individually as part of Picturemaxx media network. The customer advisors of Friedrich Strauss Gartenbildagentur will become part of StockFood’s team in Munich, continuing to use their wide range of specialist botanical knowledge to provide customers with creative diversity, outstanding picture quality and professional indexing.
