Women in photography day
THE NUJ is holding one-day event on women in photography, bringing together industry experts, photographer organisations and networks, photographers and videographers and NUJ officers and officials to discuss the issues.
According to the 2018 report The State of News Photography almost 70 per cent of women photographers said they faced discrimination in the workplace. This NUJ Photographers' Council event will look at the barriers facing women and how the union can support women photographers and videographers and stop the disproportionate number leaving the industry.
It includes a workshop by NUJ trade union trainer Caroline Holmes to help you feel more confident when dealing with tricky situations and the session will equip you with some of the skills to get assignments and be paid what you are worth. It's on Wednesday 19 June and costs £6.98 to NUJ members or £17.64 to non-members. It is open to all photographers.
Speakers will include:
- Natasha Hirst, chair of the NUJ's Photographers' Council
- Adrian Hadland, professor of communications, media and culture University of Stirling, and co-author of The State of News Photography.
- Charlie Booth, programme co-ordinator, Redeye photography network
- Pennie Quinton, chair of London Freelance Branch
- David Ayrton from the NUJ's freelance office explaining how the union supports photographer members
- Caroline Holmes offering practical session on helping you to feel more confident when dealing with tricky situations
