Photography and illustration for trade unions and NGO’s
I have had the pleasure of working with many trade unions since I started as a photographer and illustrator in 1994. I have covered campaigns, mergers, strikes, conferences, festivals and almost every other area in which unions are active. Some of my photography has won the TUC annual awards.
Trade union photography at conferences and AGMs
I have worked on conferences and AGMs for PCS, ACCORD, RMT and ASLEF. The types of shots I have taken include, portraits, delegates and the lecture, guest speakers, reactions from the audience, group shots and informal shots of delegates enjoying the event.
Images for magazines, journals and publications.
I often take images to go on the cover of the union journal or for editorial images to go inside. These might be documentary, illustrative or staged images.
Campaign illustrations and photomontages
Sometimes a still image cannot illustrate a complex story effectively but an illustration or photomontage made from a number of separate images can create a powerful campaigning image.
