About Us

A history lesson

Stock licensing began with professionals and outtakes from feature films and 35mm newsreels.

Its child, microstock, introduced royalty-free licensing and cashed in on advances in equipment and codecs.

The next generation of image and video licensing is now upon us. It centers around social media, where anyone with a camera and an internet connection can share the world as they know it.

With Instagram alone adding over 50 million images and videos a day to a massive pool of UGC, Scopio’s mission is to cut through the clutter with a platform. We're making it easier to discover and license images that'll get you four times the click-throughs or videos that increase engagement by 28%.

Because, hey, no matter what your business is about, the world is moving towards more authentic photos and videos.


Discover Something Better

Scopio is a robust, AI-driven user-generated content discovery and licensing platform. Our personal dashboard leverages proprietary smart search and request technology, enabling users to manage projects and safely license authentic social media images and videos directly from the source.

You shouldn’t have to spend hours scouring social media for that perfect photo or video — especially when you can’t get creative with it.


Keep it real

We live in a world where anyone can take and share photos or videos in minutes, and this kind of content outperforms canned stock photos by leaps and bounds. Why?

UGC captures a slice of reality — maybe even something from five minutes ago. It’ll increase your metrics like it’s nobody’s business. And the experts agree.


Our team has your back

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

From machine-learning experts to social media geeks and content-licensing professionals, everyone at Scopio is united through one common theme: Connecting the world through visual storytelling.

Businesses talk in one language with the images and videos they use. Everyday people talk in another with the content they create. And Scopio? We’re melding those languages together.
