about us

The V Xhymshiti Pictures Agency (VX Pictures is an outlet of VX Media) was founded in April 2019 and is one of the region’s leading independent photo agencies. VX supplies media outlets, businesses and other organizations with editorial content, including text, photos, videos, and other formats.

The company has around 35 contracted photojournalists in 25 locations in Britain and abroad. Our contractors work according to the principles outlined in the VX’s professional code of conduct: independently from ideologies, businesses and governments.

The central editing desk, under Editor-in-Chief Vudi Xhymshiti, is remotely operational from London and elsewhere.

VX Pictures aims to become the most trusted source of fast, accurate, unbiased news in video and still image formats and the essential provider of technology and production assistance services vital to the news business.

We believe in the power and energy of using our collective effort to produce stunning and unique editorial images that stand out from the usual fayre. We stand proud of our innovative business mindset and are not afraid to swim against the prevailing current.

Offering an exciting blend of news, lifestyle, portrait, reportage and archive pictures from the United Kingdom, Eastern Europe, the Baltics, the Middle East, North Africa and beyond, our photographs are well suited for editorial and textbook use.

We focus on the politics of race, gender, identity, migration as well as displacement of people due to climate change and armed conflicts.

We are both the amplifying voice for the voiceless, and the professionals that can capture the image representing the complex and shifting political, environmental and social landscape, whether at the local, national or international level.
