TLDR: Scopio Authentic Stock Photography offers an image archive of more than 400,000 images, all captured by top-notch artists from all around the world.
Stock photography doesn’t usually make people excited. It’s a rank-and-file collection of pictures that often feature generic people in generic poses smiling generically as they do generic tasks. In a word, they’re…generic.
But honestly, that can still be a fine fit for advertisements or social media posts or website content. But there are alternatives for those looking for a photo archive that’s got a little more artistic flair to it. Scorpio Authentic Stock Photography ($29.99, over 90 percent off, from TNW Deals) is most definitely one of those alternatives.
Launched in 2016, the female-founded company’s co-owner Nour Chamoun was featured on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list, mostly for Scopio’s interesting spin on the “generic” photo stockpile.
While Scopio members get access to more than 400,000 images, those photos are all sourced from 13,000 photographers from over 150 countries, each offering a unique, diverse, and even artistic collection that stretches way beyond the standard image gallery many stock providers offer. And by supporting Scopio, you’re supporting these artists, helping to fund their mission to capture life worldwide, all to the benefit of your digital projects.
This lifetime membership includes standard rights to all of these royalty-free photos. So while they can’t be used for commercial purposes, users have a whole variety of ways they can be used, including emails, newsletters, PowerPoint presentations, web pages, social media posts, editorial content, and more.
Featuring collections in dozens of different categories, including sections on people, nature and fashion all the way to animals, places, food, lifestyle and more, there’s always a group of interesting shots to match your image needs.. Meanwhile, Scorpio’s selection never sleeps, with new photos being introduced every day.
Plus, this subscription to Scopio Authentic Stock Photography is basically free, from a certain point of view. In addition to that lifetime Scopio membership for $29.99, buyers will also receive a $30 store credit to TNW Deals, so you can use that $30 on other stellar items in the store, making your Scopio access virtually free.
