Spaces at Photographer’s Conference going fast... gone!
AS WE WENT to press, there were still a few places left for the Photographers' Conference. Before you contact the Freelance Office, check for updates on the LFB website, which will tell you whether the conference has become fully booked or not.
Doors at London's Sadler's Wells Theatre open on 27 February at 9:30am, and the conference kicks off at 10am and finishes at 7pm.
Martin Evening, an authority on Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, will be among the speakers. Metropolitan Police Commander Richard Broadhurst, responsible for public order, will speak at the Your Rights session, which also covers the Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE), privacy law, human rights law and countryside legislation.
Other speakers include: Linda Royles (British Association of Photographic Libraries and Agencies), Joanna Cave (Design and Artists Copyright Society), Ryan Dunleavy and Kate Fox (Thompsons solicitors), and NUJ Freelance Organiser John Toner.
There are sessions on Get it in Writing, Copyright & Intellectual Property, and Strategy for Survival, which includes running your business, licences and NUJ organisation.
The Conference also hosts the Photographers' Exhibition, which showcases work from 100 NUJ members, celebrating 100 years of the union. Pete Jenkins of the Freelance Industrial Council, who was worked to make the Conference a reality, says: "We have had a lot of interest from the professional photography press."
