All you need to know about how to sell a celebrity photo or video clip to the national media. Simply send your pictures to our picture dest: [email protected] and we’ll tell you how much they are worth. We can’t use them without your concent.
Make the most from your pictures, videos and stories by selling them to the UK’s largest press agency.
Exclusivity is king; nobody wants a story, picture or video that everybody else has so don’t sent it to every paper in the country. Send it the largest and most trusted press agency in the UK, SWNS, and we’ll auction it to the highest bidder on your behalf.
Please don’t send in photographs of Stars doing nothing. However, celebrities on holiday, shopping, clubbing, kissing, misbehaving, etc, etc will earn you good money.
Speed is of the essence in the media, if you get something good don’t hesitate. Send it over to us ASAP. You’d be surprised how quickly the celebrity market moves. Today your pics could be worth £1,000, tomorrow it is worthless.
Sets of pictures can sometimes sell better than just one image so try to get a sequence of snaps if possible. Also, make sure you get the highest quality possible image.
Grainy, out of focus snaps are usually less profitable, but we’ll consider every image. The same applies for video footage.
Video media content is becoming increasingly profitable. We can take stills from your footage, or sell it to online publications, as well as helping you maximize revenue from video content sites such as Youtube.com.
Please respect people’s privacy. Always make sure you use your common sense when snapping away – we won’t syndicate pictures or videos that invade, obstruct or abuse anyone’s privacy. Offensive, unlawful, or hateful images and videos will NOT get printed or used.
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.
