What To Shoot?

Don’t know what to shoot? Not sure what we are looking for? We are looking for stock images that represent the Black and Indigenous people of Canada. If you had to run a promotional campaign about a product where the target audience was Black and Indigenous, what would you want to see?

Of course, this does not mean we do not accept images taken outside of Canada. As long as they feature and represent the culture and traditions of Black and Indigenous people, your stock will have priority in our database. Please see our FAQs for more answers.

What's So Different?

POC Images was created to feature and spotlight Black and Indigenous people of Canada but also to help photographers gain extra income.

We split revenue 60-40 where 60% goes to the photographer. We need a few bucks to keep the lights running but beyond that, we want POC to become a reliable source of income for photographers all across Canada.

Commission will be paid on a monthly basis to each photographer based on the site sales of individual licenses and subscriptions.

All stock photography will be accepted. However, the goal of POC Images is to feature and promote Black and Indigenous people. These are the images that will always take priority on our platform. All images will be searchable in our database,  With the understanding between vendor and agency that priority will be taken upon images and content that reflect POC Images core value and mission.

Why Do Stock Photos?

Stock photography has changed drastically over the past 10 years. It’s no longer images of dull scenery,  or fake smiles. You now have a plethora of images and pictures to choose from that will fit any caption you have.

With social media on the rise, the need for images that represent your brand and culture is more important than ever.

We want to change how photographers may view stock photography. Look at it as a way to make passive income. What are you doing with all those images sitting on your memory card anyway? Put them to use and let them make money for you by joining POC Images.

Stock images for a colourful world.
