StockFood, the food picture agency of the Munich Image Professionals Group, welcomes another prominent addition. Effective immediately, Europe’s leading agency for food photos will market the multiple award-winning images from Tre Torri, one of the most renowned German publishers of high-quality culinary publications.
Exclusive to StockFood: Food productions from the Tre Torri Publishing House
What is the flavor of water? How can the flavors of meat be visualized? How can five-star cuisine be brought home and heated? These are just three of the exciting culinary questions that Tre Torri Verlag (Italian for three towers – for food, drink, and pleasure) has dedicated itself to with great passion, exceptional expertise, and decades of experience.
In 1994, publisher Ralf Frenzel and his agency CPA! were partly responsible for the huge success of Alfred Biolek’s “alfredissimo!” He produced the successful cooking show and was the godfather for numerous other culinary art classics. Founding Tre Torri Verlag in Wiesbaden in 2004 was not only a seamless continuation of this work, it was also a logical decision concerning his uncompromising quality and standards.
Integrative Images of Culinary Art and Wine
The focus is always on new, innovative projects and a multifaceted program consisting of a strong backlist and colorful novelties. Here, the books of highly awarded star chefs are seamlessly lined up with companion books to Germany’s biggest cooking and baking shows or standard works of culinary art as well as around the topic of wine, which is particularly close to the heart of the trained sommelier. More than 50 issues of FINE Das Weinmagazin alone, of which Ralf Frenzel is the editor, provide an equally high-quality and comprehensive stock of images from the world of wine – sites, regions, wineries, and personalities – that is unparalleled.
The Expertise and quality of the Tre Torri collection
Behind the publisher is a team of professional chefs, ecotrophologists, photographers, authors, and editors. In addition to the content claim, visual appearance and quality are literally emphasized: A large number of large-format editions are finished with foil embossing, colored book cuts, or silkscreen relief varnish.
Another characteristic of the culinary program at the Tre Torri publishing house is very upscale, refined, and unusual recipes, most of which are artfully staged in one of the company’s photo locations – completely natural, without any varnishes or color additives. In the future, these images will be exclusively available to StockFood’s customers worldwide for use subject to licensing.
About Our Partnership
Ralf Frenzel, the publisher of Tre Torri, sees the partnership with StockFood as a perfect liaison: “Our food and wine images go through elaborate production and range from refined recipes to informative stills, and authentic reports from the world of wine. So it’s only natural that we license these diverse productions via the market leader, StockFood. Over the course of the year, thousands of our images will be available.”
Martin Skultety, Managing Director of the agency group Image Professionals, is delighted about the prominent new addition to StockFood: “There are few people in Germany who understand as much about culinary and wine culture as publisher Ralf Frenzel and his team. As a leading agency for food photography, we speak the same language. Therefore, we are very pleased that we can now make the high-quality photo productions from Tre Torri available to a wider professional user group.”
