The story behind the name

United Northern Photographers was founded in 1997 by picture editor and managing director Hamlet Mejloumian. Established to provide an independent and cost effective alternative to large multi-national agencies, UNP tapped into the desire for a more “boutique” photography service; hands on, available, responsive. Within three years the name was updated to United National Photographers as coverage had expanded right across the UK. We are now the UK’s largest independent provider of press and PR photography with 53 photographers based throughout the UK.
