Darren Britton


After leaving engineering to follow my passion I studied photography at Newport's renowned school of documentary photography. I've been at Wales News Service since 2001 and became a director in 2008.

I specialise in editorial, press, public relations and sports photography and regularly see my work published in national & local newspapers, magazine and website as well as across the globe. I believe that you are only as good as your last job and I strive to create the best possible image for each and every client. Our reputation within the industry is second to none, so please pick up the phone to discuss your photography needs, I look forward to hearing from you.

Tom Martin


Tom  has worked for Wales News since 2011 and is a passionate and conscientious member of the team.

After a brief period working as a freelance photographer Tom turned his hand to press photography and never looked back.

He is committed to providing quality images and often sees beauty in the unexpected – whether that be a F1 race track or a muddy farmer’s field.

Tom is a hard worker and follows every brief to the letter – often delivering more than expected but never less.

Overall he is a flexible, approachable talented photographer who utilises his varied skill set to take breath taking images - a real asset to our team.
