Today I’m excited and terrified and happy and sweating to introduce you to the project I’ve been talking about for the last few months. The project that contains my heart and soul and many, many hours of dreaming and work to make it a reality. It’s Forkified!
Forkified is a one-of-a-kind website that aims to connect food photographers and stylists with the people who make or sell props, backgrounds, and more. It’s like a classifieds website that weeds out all the noise and makes it easier to find exactly what you’re looking for. Buyers and sellers deal directly, negotiating price and shipping, which allows sellers to keep costs low while keeping any profits for themselves.
On Forkified, you can sell anything that might have to do with food photography, like plates, forks, wood boards, cameras, lights, and even post jobs. There is a page of resources to help those new to food photography improve their craft, and there are forums where people can connect and ask questions of the community.
I have big dreams of this being a useful resource and vibrant community of professionals and hobbyists alike. It is currently FREE to use. However, we may transition to a small posting fee in the future, so if you have anything to sell I recommend getting on it right now! There currently isn’t much for sale, but don’t let that deter you from posting. We’re already active on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest and are ready to help promote your ads along those channels to help you sell. It would also be great if you wanted to follow us on any of our social channels to stay up to date on what’s happening.
You can check out Forkified here. If you have any questions or feedback, I’d love to hear it! Feel free to leave a comment on this post or email lindsay [at] forkified [dot] co.
