You can call Estefano a real passionate traveler and food lover. On several blogs, Estefano talks about food through photography, combines food and art, and shares his experiences of food trips. With the photo diary “People behind Food” you can take a look behind the scenes of the chefs and where the products come from.

Also, you can be inspired by the beautiful photography of Estefano culinary journeys. His photography is based by storytelling. Every picture has its own story. And Estefano is a great storyteller. He can show you the entire process, from ingredients to the culinary picture on your plate, where the ingredients come from and how these ingredients are made.

“Capturing the country, I am visiting, to create cherished memories. For 2024 I will do something new, so called “Slow Photography”, like slow food. It means focusing on books and print, as people should take more time for a picture as just rushing through a smartphone or tablet. Print is more than just a piece of paper, it’s a story with a lot of impact”, Estefano shared his future plans.
