We’re about everywhere money. So our photography can come from, well, everywhere. The more colourful, inclusive, and inspired by the world around us, the better.

Make use of intricate details and textures to create visual richness.

Paraphernalia and unusual accessories tell stories of travels and money used around the world.


People are proud to use Wise. Show that confidence through strong character, bold expression and boundless energy.

Bold, expressive styling and positive energy. Never hiding from the camera.

Try not to direct people too much, just let them be them. The more natural they act, the more confident they’ll be.

Master strong, direct poses. If someone is holding a card or a phone, they should hold it like they mean it.


Keep it real. Images should feel natural and human, representative of the real moments we all live through. And the real moments we capture on film.

Three people sat together smiling. The woman in the centres gently pulls the two towards her, with her arms cradling each of their heads.

Capture genuine interactions between people. Unless they’re arguing. Nobody wants to see that.

Make use of real-world environments and real-world stories. If it isn’t staged, it won’t feel staged.

The sun makes everything better, including photography. Treat lighting like normal life — when it’s dark, turn on the flash, when it's sunny don't point the camera at the sun.

Using money around the world

Shoot people working, living and spending money just like they do every day. We don’t need to show the product — as long as there’s some sense money’s involved, it’ll work.
