Our history

NurPhoto Agency is one of the world's largest independent press agencies and wire services. The company and its photographers have received numerous awards including Pictures of the Year International.

NurPhoto, which is a benchmark for quality photography, works more than 1,000 photos per day in digital format on major news, politics, economics, sports and entertainment in all around the World.

It’s broad range of activities (production and distribution of images for journalism, for corporate and advertising communication, for fashion and the publishing sector, archives and online material ac-cess) is made possible by a variety of international partners.

News values

Seven factors are taken into account to assess the importance of a news story: impact, timeliness, prominence, proximity, uniqueness, conflict and currency.
To capture a moment dense with reality that is at the same time harmonised in its forms, a solution thanks to which photographs of great quality and emotional significance can be made that convey to the observer the “sensation of finding oneself in front of a transient moment”, void of any manip-ulation.
NurPhoto’s photography is a sublime, high expression of a language that offers irreplaceable chances of memory, of communication and, why not, even of poetry.

Quality Photojournalism

NurPhoto is an ambitious project which has quickly attracted many photojournalists and video-makers from all over the world.
NurPhoto uses the latest professional digital technologies to supply high quality images. The imag-es of NurPhoto are characterised by rigour and geniality: a particularly valuable quality as it is in-ternational from its very inception.
The agency’s photographers have worked to achieve a common objective: a unique photographic offering and images that take on an important role not only as sources of information, but also as powerful sources of emotion. They are at the same time interpretation and evidence, whose quali-ties will last in time.

Multi-Cultural View

Our team is a nexus of adaptivity and evolution of new and existing technologies. NurPhoto is a global, multicultural and interactive agency. Glimpses of life, to see the world, to be witnesses to important events, to observe the faces of the poor and the actions of the powerful; to see armies, or shadows in the jungle; things that are thousands of kilometres away; hidden behind walls, be-loved women and children; to see, to have the pleasure of seeing and of being surprised.

Our Mission

The photojournalistic agency's aim is to giving light to the stories, places and events capable of affecting the viewer, to raising questions rather than suggesting answers. A photo thanks to which is possible to investigate the human condition not only framing aspects libelous, dramatic and spectacularly, but that even forcibly seek beauty.
