Will Street Photography still be around in five years time?

Tuesday 26th October, 6pm at Headland House.

At this month’s branch meeting we will have an expert panel talking about whether the ConDem government will defend photographer rights over the next five years. Speakers will talk about the subject from their area of expertise before the discussion is opened to the floor.

Any motions to the branch should be sent to the branch secretary prior to the meeting.

Police officers cannot be above the law

When the police act outside the law and attack human rights and media freedoms by physically attacking media workers then the police should be held to account for such actions. It seems that Sir Paul Stephenson has other ideas.

Outrage at Police plan to issue their own press card

Leicestershire Police revealed they will be issuing their own press card/badges for the English Defence League (EDL) on Saturday 9 October.

Photographers unite to defend Press Freedom

Congratulations to the photographers who stood their ground against Tate Britain’s new contract, which effectively banned ‘bad’ coverage of the gallery. Photographers are fed up of being pushed around, all we ask for is the ability to do our jobs without negative interference from press officers, police officers or security guards.

Reporting from the Deepwater Disaster

At last the branch meeting video journalist and branch committee member Jason Parkinson spoke about his trip to the Gulf of Mexico to document the environmental disaster following the leak from the Deepwater Horizon oil well.

Who’s afraid of Photographers?

That will be the question under discussion at a seminar organised by the NUJ at the House of Commons on Thursday, 28 October. Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, and anyone interested should contact John Toner.

  8. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m
    planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
