Foam Talent x MPB

Through a series of activations orbiting the Foam Talent programme, Foam joined forces in 2024 with MPB: the largest global platform to buy, sell and trade used photo and video gear. MPB is passionate about sustainability and proudly recirculates more than 500,000 products a year, all carefully inspected by their product specialists.

Like Foam, MPB is also committed to accessibility and inclusion by opening up the world of visual storytelling to people of all backgrounds — beginners, enthusiasts, and professionals alike. Spotlighting the technical possibilities of photography, our collaboration with MPB offers valuable support to the Foam Talent programme, as well as to the new cohort of featured image-makers themselves.

Over the coming months, Foam and MPB present exclusive content with the Foam Talents through short interviews, video and photo recipes in which they reflect on the technical side of their work. Keep an eye on our channels for more!
