Colorstock is the first curated stock photo marketplace featuring people of color. All people of color.
Launched in August 2015, our catalog offers images of Black, Asian, Latinx, and other ethnically-diverse people at work and at play, reflecting their nuanced lives in realistic ways. We help marketers change the hue of their stock photos with simply priced, royalty-free images.
For many, current stock photo options lack the needed cultural elements to tell an authentic visual story. We are content creators who have trouble finding images of people who look like us. We are multicultural marketers who can't find authentic photos of our audiences. When we do find them, the images don’t reflect an authentic voice or viewpoint.
This is a problem.
We decided to create a solution: a place where multicultural marketers and content creators could find images that reflect accurate stories of our cultured lives; visualized by a collective of diverse emerging photographers.
Our founder & managing director is a Black woman. Our photographers -- the Collective -- are diverse men and women from all walks of life. Our pipeline isn't broken because we are building it ourselves. We're building the best resource in diverse stock photos.
No huge catalogs touting millions of images. No "folded hands" and corny stock poses. We're creating a curated catalog with relevance. And we're paying our photographers above market commissions to do so. #Respect.
