Captivating Photography

We are 500+ passionate photographers.
We use our creative skills to do good things for good causes.

Sharing stories

There is an interesting story behind every photo. Through photography, we can all learn about the world we live in and make a positive impact. When our contributing members share their photographs, we regularly showcase their work in a form of a story, interview, via newsletter and social media.

Stock photography revolution

We have completely changed the commission-based model of how images are currently being sold and purchased. We developed our Excio PhotoTokens® that photographers earn at the time they submit a photo. This helps us make images affordable to buy for those who need them while fairly rewarding photographers. With every PhotoToken sale we  donate 1% to a charity.

What our members are saying

Raewyn Smith

“The Excio Image Library looks stunning and is easy to use, this being the main reason I jumped on board.”

Judi Lapsley Miller

“I loved that Excio was audaciously trying to fix the broken stock photography model, and I wanted to be part of that change. Will it work? We won’t know until we try, and it’s not like I have a shortage of photos to upload!”

Robert Sanson

“I like what Excio has set out to achieve. It’s not just an image library that will pay photographers fairly, but a community of photographers who can encourage each other through the various platforms such as the Facebook group, the blogs and the Excio journal.”

Shelly Linehan

“In my mind, the term ‘professional photographer’ should not only mean that you earn an income from photography, but you should have a very sound knowledge of your craft, you should be able to pick up your camera and know how it works without even thinking about it, you should behave in a professional manner, have plenty of experience behind you, and produce quality work.”

We champion responsible photography practices.
