Do you have a photo that you would like to sell to a newspaper or other press outlets?
These days most people have a camera on their mobile phone. In one sense everybody is a paparazzi in waiting.
Whether you’ve just taken a picture of a celebrity or you were at the scene of a breaking news story, you can make money from your pictures. As the UK’s largest press agency, we provide hundreds of pictures to the press every week and we’re always looking for more.
All you need to do is send your photo to our Picture Desk. We’ll let you know how much it’s worth and we won’t use it until you give us the go-ahead.
We can turn your pictures into cash for you immediately. You will keep 100% of the money generated from the picture (we make our money from providing the words and we’re paid an agency fee depending on the column inches that it takes up).
Our picture desk can be reached at: [email protected]

In most cases it needs be exclusive (i.e. not a photo that other people will have). Typically we would be looking for:
Whatever you do, don’t just hand your picture straight to a newspaper. We auction your pictures to the highest bidding publication, or we are able to wire it to every publication in the UK. SWNS is the largest press agency in country, so we are able to demand the highest fees.
If you’re worried about sending the photo to us, simply tell us about the pic (just a brief description will do) by filling out the form on the left hand side of this page. We’ll get back to you to let you know what we think it would be worth, but we’d obviously need to see it at some point!
We work with hundreds of professional and amateur photographers. Not only do you own the copyright of your photo (so you’re legally covered), we operate an automated system, so you will be kept informed at all times about all the income that the picture generates. All payments will be collected and deposited directly into your bank account.
