Writer Pictures
Writer Pictures was set up in 2004 by Alex Hewitt and Graham Jepson to supply good quality images to newspapers, magazines and publishers. Graham was a busy photographer who shot many authors and Alex was working on a national newspaper picture desk and from both sides of the industry they spotted a gap in the market for good quality, colour images of writers.

In the years since its launch, Writer Pictures has built a very respectable database of tens of thousands of author images and supplies all UK national newspapers with images on a daily basis. Writer Pictures is also trusted internationally to source and shoot pictures for magazines, publishers and the authors themselves. Writer Pictures also covers prominent literary events such as the Booker, Costa and Orange Prizes plus many literary festivals.

Graham has since left the business for a new life in Australia and has been replaced by marc marnie as a new partner for Alex

We have offices in London and Edinburgh and a network of photographers throughout the UK, the USA and France. We also have many partner agents abroad to enhance our sourcing and distribution of images.
