Scopio is an image marketplace of more than 300,000 photos from photographers in 150 countries. We made Forbes30under30 this year for our mission, to make stock photography more diverse, authentic and affordable.

Our team has your back

We're a tight bunch of creatives from around the globe.

Our goal is to support rising photographers across the world so they can pursue capturing and sharing authentic moments and get their images used by the world's best creatives and earn money. Through their lens we can change the way we see the world. Scopio supports more than over 20k businesses, designers, artists, and producers around the world who are looking for authentic and diverse images to power their storytelling.

Our team has your back. We're a tight bunch of creatives from around the globe and based in New York. From machine-learning experts to social media geeks and content-licensing professionals led by female founders, everyone at Scopio is united through one common theme: Connecting the world through visual storytelling, and giving every creator access to fresh and real photos to tell humanized stories that perform better in videos, content, presentations, social media, and more.


Our Curated Approach

Scopio’s mission is to find the best rising content creators from every corner of the world, and get you images that inspire. We do all the heavy lifting in getting your photo packaged and ready to go, tagged, titled and ready to be found and used.  Did we mention that they're all real people, and do not have models in them. We add fresh images and unique collections daily that creatives are looking for. 

Because, hey, no matter what your business is about, the world is moving towards more authentic and diverse storytelling. People are taking such beautiful and diverse photos in different places, settings, showing us things we never had access to before! We take more images every year than in all of history combined. We can literally see the world through millions of lenses now! Everyday, we are "awe" inspired and interested from the images we see captured by regular people and shared on social media. There are over 25 million business profiles using Instagram worldwide, and you are probably one of them. Or if you are a content creator, you are among the billions worldwide that finally have a platform to share their world and creativity.
