What is Excio?
Excio (from Latin excite, evoke) is a community of passionate photographers who use their skills to make an impact. Together we lead the #FairSharePhotography movement to make sure every photographer is fairly rewarded and to advocate for causes that we support.
We are based in Wellington, New Zealand. We are growing globally so everyone is welcome from any part of the world.
Photographers join Excio for many reasons: to be a part of a friendly photography community; gain creative inspiration; grow confidence; share expertise; connect with, meet and support other like-minded photographers; be part of a meaningful mission; support good causes through photography and sell their work. (Pretty much there is no reason why you shouldn't be joining!)
