About Solent News and Photos

An independent press agency based in the UK, we send news around the world.


Every day, our content flows directly into the news, photographic and feature queues of the biggest newspapers and magazines across the globe.


It is an around the clock, real-time service at the coal-face of the industry.


Newsdesks love us because we are first, fast and accurate. Picture desks love us because our photographs brighten up their day. Feature desks love us because we supply a steady stream of moving human interest stories.


Solent has a million-image archive and a thriving photo syndication department. We have hand-picked a brilliant network of photographers who supply us with astonishing images from all four corners of the world.


Our own award-winning photographers also undertake specialist PR work for many of Britain's top companies. We provide a bespoke service for our corporate clients, tailored to meet their exact needs.
