My name is Thorsten. I always try to use it as my screen name too. As you can see, someone else was faster and so I added my initials TK. Something, which never changed is my avatar. If you see the ostrich on blue, you can be sure it's me. As I think it is always nice to have the face behind the name, here a photo of me:
In 2005 I get interested in "Food Photography" and it became my favorite field. And on flickr I am presenting some of them. I would like to describe me as a keen amateur in food photography. And I always try to improve my skills.
I'm always interested in a discussion about photography. Comments and critique on my photos are always welcomed and encouraged. It is always fun to talk about photography and I love it. I like to get into a real discussion about photography, especially food photography. In October 2007 I started a flickr group called Food Photography Club, where the members of this group hang out to talk about food photography and discuss photos. I'm pleased to say, that some of the most inspiring food photographers became members and some of them are hosting it with me.
The pics I uploaded here and will upload are usually between 500-600 pixels (longest side) and compressed to less 100K. If you would like to see the larger image, contact me or visit my web page. And please remember: all images © Thorsten Kraska and cannot be used without permission.

""Thorsten is probably the best food photographer on flickr" His photos never fail to amazed me. Simply love his way of simple prop setting, creatively used of colors combination, presentation... etc. How i come to know him was his kind and inspiring advice on my very 1st food shot. Till now, his photos will always my inspiration and ideas whenever i'm doing food photography. Keep up the "best" work!"

"Thorsten creates the most incredible food photos which are an absolute delight and which should NEVER be viewed on an empty stomach. He is also very generous with his expertise and is willing to help others improve their own photos in what is a difficult field.
Guaranteed to make you hungry and I would say more...but I'm off to raid the fridge! ;)"

"I've known Thorsten even before Flickr and his photos never fail to amaze me! His shots are clean, simple and natural. I love the styling of his photos as well. A great photographer and a great chef who is always bursting with tips and ideas on how to improve photos! Cheers!"

"Your photos are full of inspiration for me, they show me how a food interested photographer should work and think. I like the experimentation and imagination in these shots, which lately result in great color combinations and great lighting.
Keep it up!"
