“I'm often asked how I secured photography gigs with National Geographic UK and Indonesia Tourism for example. The simple answer is through exposure. There is little point in buying expensive camera gear and travelling to the world's most photogenic places if you leave all your fabulous encounters on your hard drive. One of the newest and increasingly pertinent ways is to join Excio Photo Community. Excio not only offers you the chance to showcase your photography, but you can also join Zoom chat meetings, have your photography story told through their Blog, and collaborate with them.”

They Made It... and So Can You
“I was attracted by Excio’s ‘mission statement’ that identified the importance of the stories behind images and the need to go beyond superficial social media popularity to do real good. When I made contact with Excio my questions were quickly and comprehensively answered by not just a real person, but the CEO and Co-founder of Excio, Ana.”
Peter Laurenson, Photographer
“Thanks Ana Lyubich for somehow finding my work and approaching me to do the interview and become a member. Part of me feels like a fraud (like, there are so many great NZ photographers around, how can this be me here?), and the other part feels super proud of myself.”
“Stoked to be included together with such a great group of photographers and their images.”
Jamie Richards, Goodshirt.co
“I just LOVE what is happening with your community!”
Vicky O'Connor, Photographer
"I have enjoyed my association with Excio. Thank you for this opportunity to clarify my thinking about what photography means to me and the way that I approach the photographic process. Photography is definitely for the people as is my other interest- poetry."
“I feel as though it is my duty to use my skill and my profession to do some good around me. If I have the gift of giving memories, it makes me happy to use it for people who need it most.”
Soulful Memories Photography
“Recently I became a member of this amazing community called Excio. And I was fortunate enough to have one of my images in their latest new best uploads.
The app is free for those wishing to just view images. Check it out! There are some amazing images on it. Your support and interest in my work have been quite humbling. 😍”
