Here are some of the causes we support through our members:

PUTTING NATURE

FIRST

We partnered with

Nature First Alliance -

an international community of photographers engaged in nature conservation. We strongly believe in following responsible practices when taking photos and encourage

our members to do the same.

PHOTOGRAPHY AS THERAPY

Photography helps with mental health issues and is a welcome distraction when there is too much stress in our lives.  We are proud to support Mental Health Foundation with regular donations thanks to our "Photography With Impact" gallery.

SUPPORTING ENVIRONMENT

When so many people are on the hunt for selfies and that perfect shot 'for the gram', our environment often suffers ("That Wanaka Tree"). We think it is only fair if we make a contribution to plant more trees on behalf of our members.

"In a world where social media like Instagram is oversaturated; where a staggering 95 million photos and videos are being uploaded into Instagram every day, it is more difficult than ever for a photograph to have an impact. There is a community that changes everything... Excio"

Maria Ligaya Photography

HOW WE STARTED

Started in New Zealand, Excio has grown into a global community of passionate photographers who are committed to making a positive change in the world.
