stephanie-quilao-june-2016Hello! Welcome to Healthy Stock, a niche royalty-free stock photography site focused on plant-based food and drinks.

Our mission is to help energize the plant-based movement through art.

All the photos on Healthy Stock are designed to be used for the web, social media, and mobile apps.

The inspiration for Healthy Stock stemmed from two things:

  1. I was tired of seeing a limited selection of beautiful plant-based food on stock photo sites, and what was available was too expensive for my use as a food and climate change activist, and small indie business owner. I want to offer affordable, beautiful royalty-free stock photography for fellow activists, bloggers, non-profits, and small businesses to help grow the plant-based movement.
  2. I want to make a living from my art. For the first time in my life, I am calling myself an artist as my profession after a corporate marketing career in Silicon Valley and as a Founder of a mobile app startup. As a customer of Healthy Stock, you are supporting an artist-owned stock photography site. Thank you!!

All of the photos taken on Healthy Stock are taken by me, Stephanie Quilao, a professional iPhone food photographer and storyteller. Who knew that a fun thing I used to do on Instagram turned into paying gigs.

Not only does Healthy Stock have the distinction of being one of the first royalty-free stock photo sites to focus on plant-based eating, we’re also the first stock photo site to feature photos taken on a mobile device.

Welcome to modern times. There is now a niche of food photography that brands want geared for social media campaigns and mobile apps. This mobile photography niche fits nicely between Pro DSLR photographers and amateur Instagrammers.

I literally have GBs of food photos I have taken over the years so I decided to start selling them. The timing was perfect also in discovering this platform that enables photographers, illustrators and videographers to sell their own art.

beyondmeat-fajitaquinoa-2Healthy Stock is a brand of my parent site, Vibrantly. It’s time for a revolution of consciousness in our food system

It’s time we bring into the spotlight the fact that our food system, namely animal agriculture is the 2nd leading cause of climate change.

It’s time we grow the plant-based food economy because there is a growing demand for plant-based foods led by conscious consumers who care deeply about climate change, animal welfare, sustainability, and their right-to-know what’s in their food.

Healthy Stock was launched in November of 2015. I’m adding new photos for sale regularly so keep an eye out or join our mailing list for notifications and updates.

I am also available for hire for your photography needs. Contact me at hireme@vibrantly.co. Thank you!
