Stocksy is bound by our genuine respect for the craft and for our artists/co-owners. We have intentionally set high quality and curatorial standards for Stocksy to ensure that the images you find on our site are authentic, intelligent, beautiful, realistic and inherently useful. We will revolutionize licensed photography not only with our co-op structure, but by making great images accessible for a reasonable price while simultaneously raising the industry standard.
We are an artist owned cooperative that is founded upon the principles of equality, respect and the fair distribution of profits. We built this co-op to pay out all its profits each year in dividends. By design, we built a company to eliminate any threats to our ideals. Created by veterans of iStockphoto and its founder Bruce Livingstone, we provide sustainable careers through profit sharing and co-ownership with our artists. We also pay the highest royalty rates in the industry.
Our head office is located in historic Market Square, in the heart of downtown, Victoria, BC, Canada.
