"SPL is the first place we go looking for science images." Roger Tooth, Head of Photography, The Guardian "We think that SPL's collection is really strong and the captions are always very thorough, which is brilliant." Jane Hance, Deputy Media Manager, Harcourt "I have been surprised by SPL's diversity of images - from species to colourful thermograms - the variety complements the range of work we cover at WWF." Caroline Lea, Senior Designer, WWF "SPL has always been really good - researchers get back to me quickly and they are really helpful." Prue Fenwick, Senior Account Manager, Lloyd Northover. "I have found Science Photo Library very easy to deal with, staff have always been very very helpful and the prices are great!" Lorraine Collins, Team Co-ordinator, Doggett Jones Design Consultancy "Science Photo Library is a fabulous resource for thousands of high resolution images of nature, health, and science news. All arranged in a pleasing, easy to use interface. It's the first place I turn to when trying to illustrate that difficult article. A tremendous agency." Michael Kelly, Picture Editor, Toronto Star, Canada "SPL has a fantastic variety of medical images, I especially like the coloured MRI and CT Scan images. They give us an insight into a world we wouldn't normally see." Jason Lancy, GP Magazine "With the aquisation of the fantastic A-Z botanical collection and ever expanding selection of beautiful women's health images SPL has really come into the broader market." Matthew Brown, Prima Magazine "Science photo library is totally unique... expect the unexpected. The library is very comprehensive and the detailed descriptions are helpful for selling into the client. Oh, and their pricing is really competitive." Antony Smith, Senior Designer, McCann Erickson "...SPL images are exciting, dramatic, and edgy but still relevant to the healthcare profession - stunning images that not only capture the art in science and nature, but also those that tell a story." Ellen Walton, Senior Art Director/DDB Health "Science Photo Library has a wonderful mix of inspiring and stunning imagery." Jody Juba, Head of Visuals AMVi, Abbottmeadvickers "The SPL website is one of the best I've ever used; very manageable with good, well categorised images. The service provided by SPL researchers is fast and accurate." Mike Kiy, Director, Latitude 51 Ltd "Science Photo's images are cutting-edge and illuminating, not to mention well-priced."
