I have been a member of the NUJ - The National Union of Journalists - since 2010 and hold a current UK Press Card. I am based in Wavertree, central Liverpool and work across Merseyside and the North West of England. But of course I can, and have done in the past, worked further afield. Indeed with the improved train times to London, I can cover events in the capital easily.
I hold comprehensive professional indemnity & public liability insurance. So we are both covered if a visitor trips on my camera bag, or some other accident !
And of course, I have loads of experience working with trade unions, including the RMT, Unison and Unite, as well as with the TUC on a recent visit to Liverpool.
Also I have worked with Royal visits to Merseyside and at the G7 Summit in Liverpool in December 2021
I am listed here on the NUJ Freelance Directory as a North West freelance photographer. So obviously if you something coming up, that needs a card carrying professional, get in touch.
A really interesting commission working with Livv Housing documenting a fire and rescue exercise in high-rise residential apartments in Kirkby. These are the people who will literally save your life!
Another Liverpool industrial photography commission under the belt and more hi-viz PPE added to the boot of the car. This time nice and local in the Old Swan, a couple of miles away from home. It was for the Lister Drive Greener Grid Park installation which is currently under construction.
Nice commission at the ACC Liverpool - Conference Venue on the waterfront. It is a venue I know very well, having worked at dozens of business events, conferences and exhibitions since it opened. It really does compete to be the UK's number one multipurpose arena and convention centre.
"Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank-you so much for the brilliant job you did for us in Bootle barracks the other week - we hit the Echo and also the Plymouth Daily (where we have an interest in veterans services) so we were dead chuffed."
