Shark Loses a Tooth

I always knew I had a great collection of wildlife photos but did not have the time or the knowledge of how best to market them until Caters News agency spotted one of my photos on the internet. They made contact about syndicating the images for me and within 6 months my work appeared in many newspapers and magazines worldwide, on CNN International and ABC News in the USA. One of my images of Great White shark hunting was even on the cover of TIME magazine - you can't get much better than that! Thank you Caters!

I have worked with Caters after they contacted me about some photos I had taken. I was initially cautious, but they were open and honest about the process. Once we agreed everything, they took care of everything and made it very simple! The whole way along the line I was expecting to be let down, but every time they promised something, they followed through and gave me massive exposure to the photos I had taken. Won't hesitate using them again and suggest you shouldn't either!

I have nothing but positive things to say about working with the great folks from Caters. Everyone I have dealt with has worked tirelessly to promote and distribute my photography and keep me up-to-date on sales. When I needed to distribute my Statue of Liberty and Lightning photo Caters moved with amazing speed to get the image in newspapers, on-line news services and on network television around the world.

I was lucky enough to come into contact with Caters News Agency and I couldn't be happier with their co-operation and enthusiasm. Their network of international contacts allow my work to be published all over the world. My favorite thing about working with Caters is the way they take care of everything which allows me to fully concentrate on my own work.

Beauty and the beast images

Worked with Caters last year and was pleasantly surprised with the results. I was approached about licensing some of my severe weather/human interaction photography. Usually I just get emails from companies like the weather channel and discovery trying to get my material for free (apparently many of these major sites rely on the vanity of individuals or something anymore), but Caters offered a fair licensing deal. Figured why not. In the end, I walked away with a good impression of Caters News Agency. If you are approached by Caters for your photos or story, I can attest to their legitimacy.

I want to thank Caters for helping me get such a positive story in the media. I met my little sister this year after decades of not knowing she existed and we shared our wonderful tale in the national newspapers and human interest magazines. I had been approached by different agencies but the team at Caters were the most interested and sincere. I feel like a famous person now! Local people always ask if I’m the man from the papers who finally got to meet his sister. If you want to sell your story Caters will definitely make it happen.

We used Caters News Agency to share the story of our baby daughter, Daisy who was born at 25 weeks, 103 days premature. They got us great coverage in two major lifestyle magazines and an appearance on national breakfast television, helping us raise awareness and money for our charity. They were really helpful.

I wouldn’t have had so much success without the help of Caters publishing my story. They were really helpful and the articles they wrote were fantastic and I want to massively thank all involved at Caters.

The reporter I worked with was very attentive and answered any of my questions, she also acted as a great agent when the offers from magazines and TV programmes poured in. I would highly recommend Caters to anyone wanting to place their story with the national press.

Down Syndrome twin

We were only thinking today of writing to you to say thank you for everything you have done. We have had lots of positive feedback from the articles and TV, even now we are still getting comments. It has helped so many people and it has raised awareness of Down’s Syndrome. The articles only scratched the surface of our lives but it has been a fantastic chance, we are so proud of our family. Thank you again.
