Tom Flathers

I am a professional press photographer for the South West News Service. SWNS is a national news agency who supply the national papers with photos. I am a staff photographer based in the midlands. I regularly work for the Times Newspaper, The Daily Mail and The Sun.

I have found news photography incredibly varied, challenging and enjoyable.

I adore photographing any kind of performance whether that be sports or theatre. In the summer 2010 I was mentored by Bob Martin at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships. I was mentored by Matthew Ashton, head of AMA Sports Photo Agency, in the Premier and Football League in the 2010-2011 season. At The University of Birmingham I was the official sports photographer for the sports department for three years

I love theatre photography and have worked for The Birmingham Hippodrome, The Swan Theatre and the Conquest Theatre.

This website shows a selection of my work.
