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.
StockFood and Science Photo Library (SPL), two outstanding providers of special images, have set up a new strategic partnership on the German picture agency market. StockFood – one of the leading German picture agencies, the world’s number one food specialist, and 100% owned by Burda – will be in charge of picture marketing for Science Photo Library in Germany. To do so, it has set up www.science-photo.de, a German-language web presence for the agency’s entire collection of special medical and scientific images. German-speaking experts will be on hand at the StockFood site in Munich to help professional customers from the media, marketing, medicine and science.

“Our new presence on the German market will allow all relevant target groups to access spectacular scientific content that is often hard to find. We believe this will cement and expand our existing position in Germany.”
Giancarlo Zuccotto, managing director SPL
High-quality visual content
Science Photo Library has been working with specialists for over 35 years and has collected more than 400,000 outstanding photos, illustrations and videos relating to medicine, science, health and the environment. Maintained by experts, the collection is constantly expanding. The new German web database developed by StockFood for the SPL collection features a comprehensive topic index with state-of-the-art search technology and various filter options and will be an indispensable source for picture editors. The Latin terms are also included for many images.
A symbiosis with a future
“We are experts in marketing highly specialised niche collections, so this long-term partnership between Science Photo Library and StockFood makes complete sense. Medicine and health will become increasingly relevant to society, so we are delighted to be the German face of this world-class collection.”
Martin Skultety, managing director StockFood
