Excio (lat. to excite, evoke)


We Are

Photographers passionate about sharing the world around us as we see it or who raise awareness for a cause that matters to us.


We Do It

By using our cameras as a tool to do good, we help ourselves and others to learn, grow and be inspired, all through photography.


We Do

We join our forces to spread the #PhotographyForGood movement and prove to the world that photography is not about selfies, likes or influencers.

About Us

We envision a world in which photography is appreciated for its meaning, not for the number of likes. 

How Our Community Is Different

We don't care how many likes or followers you have. You and your work is at the heart of what we do.

Your photos get the attention they deserve instead of competing with cat memes and duck faces.

Unlimited access to hundreds of articles and interviews.

Your copyrights fully protected on all our platforms and on the app.

We help you build your credibility and authority by supporting your #PhotographyForGood efforts.

Online & offline members-only events and discussions.

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, one photo at a time.
