Alex is a photographer based in the Leeds office. After graduating from UWE Bristol with a degree in journalism, he joined SWNS as a staff photographer. Alex particularly enjoys covering breaking news and unpredictable assignments. His stills are often accompanied by video, utilising skills he developed at university, and for which he was awarded the NUJ Prize for best content locally. In his spare time he can often be found in a kayak, on a motorbike or playing frisbee. See a small selection of Alex Cousins’ photos here.
