Hire a Photographer – Birmingham / Midlands
Welcome to SWNS Images. We are a national, award winning, photographic media agency. You'll see hundreds of our photographs in the national press each day. However, we also undertake work on behalf of numerous private clients across a range of projects. We will not be beaten in terms of quality, and our prices are extremely competitive (we set the industry standard).
Although we are a national business with offices spanning the UK, we very much have the feel of a local company. Our Birmingham office staff photographers cover the whole of the Midlands, and the surrounding areas. All other areas in the UK are covered by our other local offices, but wherever you are based, we can help.
If you are seeking a photographer to assist with any photographic or videography project, please contact us today. SWNS is flexible, reliable and outstanding.

Being able to rely on a SWNS photographer to take great shots and keep our clients happy is priceless.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending SWNS – friendly, approachable and very easy to work with.
From visits by Government Ministers, to charity events at any one of our 276 stations, it is important I can rely on an agency I know can get the pictures I need from any event, often at very short notice

SWNS is, by a distance, the best news agency in Britain. Its track record over the past 20 years is beyond compare. Its ability to deliver high quality stories day after day is simply remarkable.

We are an independent press agency and have been working with SWNS Images for two years now. They take care of all images and syndication for our news and magazine stories. Not only are they a great bunch to work with, the level of professionalism and expertise is second to none. I hope to work with SWNS long into the future. http://www.famousfeatures.co.uk
