Our press photographers take photographs to record news, current events and lifestyle stories. Our aim is to capture the best images to document an event, tell a story or convey a message. The pictures are then syndicated to newspapers, magazines, web publications, and television channels, or sold exclusivelly to a single publisher.

Look out for the SWNS logo in all of the daily news outlets - you'll see that we provide the lens behind many stories.
