Food Blogger Resources is a recipe creation and photography service offered by Jim and Shelley Merchant to help busy food/recipe bloggers. We cook, photograph, and sell you the rights to use the recipe and photos on your food site as your own with no attribution required.
We make your blogging life easier by providing you with content so that you can focus on promoting and growing your site, connecting with readers, and doing the things that only YOU can do.
Our recipes can be found at our store on Shopify or by following the menu item “Recipes For Sale“.
Here’s how it works:
-We make and photograph a recipe creating several different looking “sets” that are available for purchase.
-Each “set” contains several finished shots in both horizontal and vertical format. These are high-resolution photos that can be used for your website, Pinterest, and other social media promotion. They can be used as is or cropped further as you like.
-Also included in each “set” are several in-process photos (these are the photos that are taken while the dish is being prepared). These are the photos you may want to include in your recipe post.
Levels of rights you can purchase
These sets then have three levels of rights that you purchase: exclusive, semi-exclusive, and non-exclusive.
Exclusive Sets: you’re the only one who has rights to these photos. They won’t be sold to anyone else.
Semi-exclusive Sets: these sets will be sold to only 10 buyers. They’re more affordable due to the fact that they’re not exclusive.
Non-exclusive Sets: these are the most affordable sets and will be sold to an unlimited number of purchasers.
-Once you purchase a “set” it’s yours – you can use the photos without attribution and according to the level of rights you purchased. When you make your purchase at the store you’re given a link to begin the immediate download of your photos and recipe. No waiting on an invoice…and no waiting and hoping that your photos will be sent to you. It’s all automatic.
That’s all there is to it!
And if you should ever have a question about an ingredient in a recipe feel free to shoot us an email or a message on Facebook. We understand that your readers may be following a particular diet plan and understanding how the recipes are made (and with what) is critical.
We’re always happy to answer your questions so that you can make your purchases with confidence (as former teachers we really like questions!).
We’ll also have generic food photos for sale. These have been taken in our kitchen and are not limited in quantity. They’ll make it easy to add photos to your site based on what goes on in real kitchens with real cooks.
email subscribers get first peek & notice of discounts & sales!
Email subscribers are the first to know what’s new on the site. We send out a weekly email each Saturday morning with links to the latest additions. The email list is also where you’ll find sales and discounts. These are only available to current email subscribers so it’s definitely worth your time to become a subscriber!
Note to previous customers: Purchases you’ve already made are honored with the rights agreement at the time of purchase. We will NOT be changing anything on previous purchases. For that reason you’ll still see items listed as “semi-exclusive” where sets are only sold to one purchaser. We honor our commitments and will continue to sell those recipes as listed at the original time of listing.
