NUJ Photographer in Liverpool, Merseyside, working across the North West

NUJ Member in Merseyside - experienced pro photographer

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.

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.

"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."
