Captivating Photography Library

Explore our abundant library of authentic, captivating photographs. It’s membership-based, fair to photographers, and affordable to image users.

How it works?

When you sign up on our Library website, you can purchase access to the Library for NZ$500+GST. This allows you to download up to 500 images, whether that takes you 3 days or 3 years — the access is entirely yours.

Contributing photographers earn a percentage from each Library access sale, which is determined by their contribution to the Library (the number of photographs they have uploaded).

Library FAQs

How can I start downloading images?

Simply sign up on the Library website (, make the payment, and start downloading.

Your $500+GST payment gives you one PhotoToken (PT), which is like a library card that gives you access to download the images.

What is restricted under your licence?

We have removed all unnecessary hurdles, fine print, and hidden comprehensive add-ons to make it easy for photographers and image buyers to understand how images can be used.

You can use photographs from the Excio Image Library in any project or campaign except re-selling images as your own or using them on products where the photograph becomes the main revenue-driving component (eg, on a T-shirt).

Under the Excio licence, you must not use an image in any way that is pornographic, offensive, racist, or ethically or culturally offensive. Images containing any person or logo, without a model release, must not be used for political endorsement.

How can I submit my images for sale in the Excio Image Library?

Photographs offered for sale in our library are supplied by members of the large and growing Excio Photographer Community. Find out more about membership and join! Please note that offering images for sale is currently by invitation only.

What if I need an exclusive licence or a custom image?

You can ask for an exclusive licence and we will arrange that with the photographers. You can also submit a custom request and we will ask our photographer-members if they have the photos you need or if they can arrange to take the photographs according to your brief.

Where is Excio based?

We are based in Wellington, New Zealand, and will provide you with GST receipts for all your purchases.
