Why I made bivio

My name is Andrea, and I am a Software Engineer/Amateur Street Photographer.

I made bivio because we, the pro and amateur photographers, don’t have good platforms to exhibit and sell our work.
Currently, we have three undesirable options:

  1. We are the product, and therefore, we have to endure ads, influencers, questionable algorithms, and changes in directions that devalue photography.
  2. We have to pay recurring subscriptions fees that get higher depending on how much functionality we want to unlock.
  3. We cannot decide the price of our work; we upload our photos and hope for the best.

On bivio, you sell and buy images from your phone. There are no subscriptions fees. You keep 100% of the price you decided for your photos.

Grow a following, follow other photographers, and be inspired while exploring the latest posts in chronological order algorithm-free.

Enjoy photography without unwelcome distractions; on bivio, there are no ads, influencers, reels, stories, IGTV, or sneaky tracking algorithms.

Tag your photos and create your feed by following tags and photographers that most impress you.

Improve your craft, help other photographers grow, and show appreciation by leaving comments and likes on your favorite images.

Exhibit your photos with their original ratio without lame crops. Discover details in landscape view and by pinching to zoom.

Receive payments and monitor earnings and payouts connecting your bivio account with Stripe.

To purchase photos and download original resolution images, buy credits from Apple’s In-App Purchase and use your credits to purchase pictures and support photographers.

bivio is on its first iteration, and you, the photographer, can steer future development. So what would you like to see next on bivio? Would you mind commenting on the “Steer bivio development” page?
I would love to hear from you.

You can find bivio on the App Store for the iPhone.

The Android version is under development.
