Working across a range of industries, often with tight deadlines, the flexibility and responsiveness of SWNS is paramount to keeping our projects moving.

    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
