Format, the leading website-building platform for photographers, today announced the launch of Workflow (Starting tomorrow, February 26, 2021), a new suite of easy-to-use tools designed to help members run a professional photography business. Workflow operates as a productivity and communication tool for photographers to better manage their time, expand their client base, and provide a heightened level of client experience.
Workflow’s user-friendly tools enable photographers to impress clientele with visually appealing, password-protected galleries that simplify collaboration on proofing. It also allows for branded file transfers of up to 10GB, provides sharable galleries housing unlimited images, and assists photographers in staying organized with contact management, labels, and project notes. Workflow integrates directly with Format’s existing platform, making it easy for users to seamlessly navigate between their Portfolio and Workflow.
In order to mitigate some of the financial impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Format is offering one year of its Workflow Pro membership free to those who register between Feb 26 and March 31. “Workflow is the meeting point of creativity, business, and client relations that the industry has been waiting for,” said Lukas Dryja, co-founder and CEO of Format. “Our mission is built around the idea that photographers should be focused on their craft, not worrying about the backend components that drive business operations. By simplifying and streamlining their business hub and providing beautifully designed client-facing interfaces, photographers can provide better service, manage their rolodex, and elevate their careers to new heights.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the lives of hardworking creative professionals across the globe, and the photography industry is no exception,” said Dryja. “Format is committed to supporting the photography community as it works to get back to business in the coming months.”

“Format provides the simplest and most straight-forward way to manage a website that I’ve found, leaving me more time to focus on personal projects and client’s requests,” said Mark Tipple, photographer and Format member.”
