There's truth in the age-old saying that a 'picture is worth a thousand words' – so it's crucial that the University uses top-class photography.

High-quality photography is the lifeblood of University publications.

Photographs aren't space-fillers. Good photography showcases our wonderful campus, facilities and staff. Rushed or poor photography undermines the University's position.

Whether its products or people, technical or creative, location or studio – CPS can ensure you get photographs that make your communications sing.

Our goal is to offer you the best images at the best price. We will:
• advise you on solutions to suit both your budget and use.
• try to meet your requirements even at very short notice.
• access buildings and staff with minimal hassle
• maximise any 'greater good' photography opportunities whilst on location

In addition to taking photographs, CPS maintain and develop the University Imagebank and manage the roster of contracted external photography suppliers.

Our in-house photographer is Owen Williams, who is based in L027 London Road. He can be reached by email or on the extension number 3882.
