It’s a worrying time for many of us right now with lots of uncertainty and social media overflowing with negative news, but there's one thing we know for sure – we must try and stay positive, distract ourselves and remember that there is still so much beauty around us.
At this unprecedented time it is our responsibility not just to take care of our own personal wellbeing but also to take care of the mind-set of the people around us. Many people need some inspiration and positivity right now!
With that in mind, here at the Excio Photo Community, we decided to try our best to bring more #PhotographyForGood into the lives of everyone who loves and appreciates photography. We are excited to announce the launch of our free WhatsApp channel where we will post a “Photo of the Day” selected from the collections of our Excio members (all copyrights protected, of course). We feel that this is a great way for us to spread the good and the positive more widely and encourage you to share the WhatsApp channel with your loved ones wherever they are in the world.
If you and those around you want to see more photos from our members then you can also download the free Excio app on your Android or iPhone too. It is ideal if you love photography as you not only get to browse through the interesting and quite often exclusive works, but also learn something new along the way as our photographers always try to include either the story behind the shot or some interesting facts.
The Whatsapp channel will provide only one way communication which means all participants of the Excio WhatsApp group will be able to receive new images on a daily basis, but won’t be able to make any comments via messaging as is normally the case with Whatsapp. This has been done intentionally so as not to overwhelm the group with constant notifications whilst also protecting our members and their copyrights. You can still contact us via the contact admin feature at the bottom of the group.
If you aren't already uploading your images on Excio and would like to get your work published and potentially featured you can join for free here.
