Yes! We want this to be a place where food photographers from all over the world can connect. Please specify your location in your ad to prevent confusion.

Please also specify in the text of your ad the cost of your item in your local currency, as we only currently have the ability to post in US Dollars. We recommend buying and selling within your own country to avoid shipping headaches, but you are welcome to do as you please. Any fees associated in the seller’s transaction are to be worked out between seller and buyer.
