Capturing the Ultimate Sporting Moments

SNS Group has been at the forefront of the Scottish sports media landscape for more than three decades. Our enthusiasm for Scottish sport remains undimmed, while our extensive experience guarantees we’ll capture those extra special moments in time, every time.

Sport, and especially Scottish sport, will always be close to our hearts here at SNS Group. Back in 1988 when we started out, sport photography and sports media very quickly formed the cornerstone of our company. We’ve diversified since then, but the idea of immortalising an iconic sporting moment in a photo or video still gets our collective pulse racing.

The terrific tapestry of Scottish sporting history is made up of special moments – and the inspiring images which accompany them. SNS Group is proud of our history capturing these magnificent moments in time.

Throughout our 30 years of sport photography, we’ve snapped more than one million photographs and filmed countless hours of video footage. This image collection is a veritable who’s who of Scottish sporting heritage, while we’ve also purchased an extensive collection of stills dating back as far as the early 1960s. That makes our archive of sporting images unrivalled in Scotland – and the envy of many media agencies around the world.

Think back to any major sporting event down the years, and the chances are high that an SNS Group sport photographer was in the thick of the action. We’ve documented glorious goals at football World Cup qualifiers, terrific tries in the rugby Six Nations and pressure putts at the home of golf, Sta Andrews. Name the iconic moment, and our passionate team will have covered it.  Our portfolio of pictures from special events down the years reflects our ongoing love for Scottish sport. By staying abreast of the latest technical advances and constantly striving to improve, we will continue to record Scotland’s proud sporting history in the manner it deserves – and for many years to come.

“Scottish Water is working with SNS Group to publicise and record key parts of our investment, such as the ongoing £250m investment in our wastewater infrastructure across the Greater Glasgow area. This investment, the biggest since Victorian times, includes the Shieldhall Tunnel and major flooding projects across the area – work that is hugely important to help improve river water quality, tackle flooding and enable the area to grow and develop in the future.

The skill and expertise of SNS Group is enabling Scottish Water to capture the very essence of these projects, and the workers and communities involved, often in spectacular fashion.
SNS Group are always highly professional, imaginative and trustworthy. And, importantly, they’re also great fun to work with.”

Sport Photography

Few things stir the blood or stoke someone’s passion quite like top-level sport. A blood-and-thunder rugby match or a nip-and-tuck game of football is something that lives long in the memory of anyone who witnesses it. The moments that matter in these compelling contests are often once in a lifetime experiences, which competitors and spectators will want to remember forever.

Capturing those blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments on camera or on film is no easy task. As soon as they arrive, they’re over, which means you’ll miss out on that iconic image if you’re not ready. Only the most professional and skilled sport photographer can be sure to capture the visuals that truly define the biggest events. You need experience, vision and passion to make sure you don’t miss the key moments of any sporting event. As a sport photographer, you can’t control the action or the competitors in front of you. You need to develop an instinctive feel for what you’re watching, so you can place yourself correctly and be ready to get that perfect picture. This innate understanding and eye for a stunning photo only comes with experience.

SNS Group has been immersed in sport photography for over three decades. When we were established back in 1988, it was the sports media field that was our sole focus after a period covering news events. Some of our current sport photographers have been working with us every step of the way, covering and documenting every sport you can imagine. Today, our team are still embedded in all the major sports, from football and rugby to athletics and golf. Such dedication and love isn’t limited to these disciplines, though, with the likes of boxing, motorsports and shinty also receiving plenty of attention.

The quality of our sport photography is recognised internationally. Some of our most iconic images have featured in newspapers, websites and within advertising campaigns across the globe. If the very highest standard of Scottish sport photography is what you need, SNS Group is the place you’ll be able to obtain it.

Sport Videography

A sports photograph can be uniquely powerful, but sometimes you need a video to tell the whole story. Edited highlights, interviews with the people who matter, and even footage of press conferences all combine to tell the full story behind any major sporting event.

SNS Group has been at the forefront of sport video production in Scotland for a decade. When we expanded our agency to encompass video footage back in 2009, our primary focus was naturally on the world of sport. Our videography portfolio has now expanded to feature offerings as diverse as corporate interviews, animated instructional videos and social media clips. Top-class sport videography, however, remains an intrinsic part of our agency’s services.

Our reputation in the Scottish sporting world means we receive permission to attend (and record) events which few other people or companies would be allowed to. By capturing press conferences, training sessions and revealing behind-the-scenes moments, we give audiences a truer picture of the big sporting events – and the personalities involved.

The range of sport videography services we offer is as wide as you’ll find anywhere. Animations, broadcast packages, documentaries and feature films are all within the remit of our skilled sport videographers. Whatever footage or content you need, our industry-leading professionals will capture it on cutting-edge 4K cameras, before applying the very latest and best production techniques to make everything look perfect.
