The Picture Pantry – Food Stock Library

A beautiful collection of food images from some of the world’s finest food photographers. The royalty free images are renowned for their high production standards and perfect styling for modern picture needs.

We have a very contemporary ’boutique’ feel to the collection of images, and every single photograph has been hand picked for its suitability. Similarly, every photographer who works with us has been invited to join the library – it isn’t open to everyone. This means that you see a wonderfully curated collection of images – you won’t have to search through hundreds of pages of average images to find one that is suitable for your project.

We work with a very accommodating group of photographers who understand our clients needs, and supply us with images that are modern, artistic and delicious. Our photographers have won numerous awards for their work, and have enabled us to supply both editorial clients (such as GQ, Sainsbury’s Magazine, many recipe books, The Times, The Telegraph…we could go on…), as well as commercial customers in a wide variety of industries from retail to design.

More important than any of this, as a library, we will listen to your needs and do our absolute best to ensure you receive the images you require at an affordable rate.
