Victor De Jesus, the freelance photographer, has effectively captured a moment that tells a story about the challenges and routines involved in maintaining public order and safety. It’s an editorial portrait of the officers at work, and it could well accompany an article discussing law enforcement in urban nightlife settings. The scene conveys a sense of immediacy and authenticity, hallmarks of skilled editorial photography.

Our editorial photographers have a distinct voice that echoes through their work. In editorial photography, each image is thoughtfully crafted to complement the narrative, enriching the story it’s meant to tell. UNP’s commitment to this craft extends to the poignant subtleties of editorial portrait photography, where the subject’s story is often told through a single, compelling image.

The quartet is holding a large placard that reads "100,000+ people call on UK Gov to fund research NOW," with an image of a blood bag filled with what appears to be plastic pieces, underscoring the message "PLASTIC IS IN OUR BLOOD."

Common Seas hands in a petition to 10 Downing Street. The individuals, presumably activists or representatives from Common Seas, are directly facing the camera, displaying the seriousness of their cause with earnest expressions. They stand united, conveying the urgency of their appeal to the government for research funding, and the photograph captures the essence of a significant social issue.

In storytelling photography, our photographers are akin to visual authors, each frame a sentence, every sequence a story. The freelance photographer in this domain has the unique task of finding the narrative thread in the tapestry of visuals they capture.

With this recognition from Adzooma, UNP is reminded of the company we’re in, alongside esteemed peers like Soho Management, AMP, JSR Agency, Lucid Representation, Wonderhatch, and Panos Pictures. Each agency brings its own flavor to the table, and it’s an honor to be leading such a talented ensemble.

While being number one is indeed a point of celebration, it’s the shared pursuit of excellence that resonates more deeply with us at UNP. We understand that photography is not just about the accolades but about the stories we tell and the legacies we leave behind through our lenses.

UNP’s journey is an ongoing narrative of passion, dedication, and the unwavering quest to capture life in its myriad forms. It’s a commitment to keeping the authentic essence of the world in view, one photo at a time.

Thank you to Adzooma for this recognition, and here’s to the stories yet to be captured, the moments waiting to be framed, and the continued celebration of this visual language that speaks so eloquently across borders and barriers
