Manfred Rave is a Cologne-based food and still life photographer. He studied photography and painting at the University of the Arts Folkwang in Essen, and loves to combine stylistic devices from both photography and painting in his work.

Manfred's clients appreciate his attention to detail along with his composition. In his spacious ground floor studio he prefers using flashlight because of its flexibility, but is equally happy to work on location. A full kitchen and a large amount of props complete the studio facilities.

Featured in this Spotlight is his project 'Eat Art' - a perfect match of his food photography and paintings.
