Our reproduction fees

If you wish to publish or broadcast rights-managed images in any format, a fee will be negotiated based on how you want to use them. We offer competitive rates tailored to you. We can also offer rates-agreements to frequent users. Please contact us for further information.

New photography of Wellcome library items

If you want us to organise photography of anything from the library catalogue which is not already digitised, please complete our online request form on the Wellcome Library website.

Professional picture research service

If you don’t have time to search our site yourself or need some expert advice, our professional scientific and historical picture researchers can help.

Please be as specific as possible when making an enquiry, including information about how you want to use the images. Also let us know your deadline and we will make every effort to meet it.
