    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

    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.
