Stocksy, An Artist-Owned Stock Photo Cooperative

Stocksy worker-owned stock photo cooperative

Stocksy is a stock photo agency that is owned and operated by its artists. Founded in March 2012 by veterans of iStockphoto, the Vancouver, BC company is a worker-owned cooperative in which member photographers own equity in the company and split company profits at the end of each year. The agency is invite-only: photographers can submit portfolios here. Photographer Thomas Hawk talks about his experiences as a stock photographer and why he joined Stocksy in this blog post.
