Press Photography

I have applied to join the NUJ - my application has been accepted and sent to the local branch (Yorkshire) to be processed and final decision made. However, does anyone know anything about or maybe is a member of the UK Press Agency? Does membership of this agency have as much benefit as the NUJ? (Other than the union bit)

Re: Press Photography

I think the main issue is whether you get a press card. The NUJ is an issuing body and can grant you a card if you earn some or all of your income through press photography

Re: Press Photography

if i can going fowords with this thread.. i have been in touch with my local council to approve a form of CRB check, to allow me to photogragh in parks etc without the hassle of being approached by any left wing do gooders wanting to take my photos from me or complain that i am a child molester or something .
The idea is to .. allow me to say to the people who have consern that i have been assured by the council to take photos and that there is no need to freat.. in simple terms relax it only a photo ...still waiting for the reply though

Can you enlighten us a bit more on this procedure?.....
Details of what part of the council, etc....
I wasnt aware you needed this kind of thing, but, like you, if it "Covers all bases", having that council permission cant be a bad thing, eh?....
