Stocksy is home to a highly curated collection of royalty-free stock photography and video footage that is beautiful, distinctive, and highly usable. Explain Stocksy officials: “We’re also a cooperative! (Think more artist respect and support, less patchouli.) We believe in creative integrity, fair profit sharing, and co-ownership, with every voice being heard. Our artist-owned platform co-op is founded on the principles of equality, respect, and fair distribution of profits. Our contributing artists receive 50% of a Standard License Purchase and 75% of an Extended License Purchase ‒ and every single co-op member receives a share of the company. Because every artist, photo, and video is hand selected, our entire 100% exclusive collection is both stunning and relevant. We have exceptionally high curatorial standards, which means you don’t have to search through endless pages to find that perfect photo or video … And our artists take great pride in their work, meeting client needs with integrity. If a specific set of images or video is needed, our Creative Research team’s deep understanding of our collection is available to hunt for the perfect resources for any project. Stocksy’s mandate is to raise the bar … Extraordinary over average, every time.” Photo Credit: Guille Faingold (Stocksy image number 1132405)
