Last week I got the chance to partake in something a little different, I was recently approached by a company called ‘TRUST’ who work with Raising awareness about the need for strong health and safety laws within workers rights. This event was to raise awareness for International Workers’ Memorial Day.
I was asked to photograph the event at the ATU shopping centre Derby, the trust had a large scale 3d print that the public could interact with and post images on social media to help raise awareness. It attracted a lot of attention from the public which was great! I was asked to do a few hours photography to document the day so the images can be used on their facebook page, magazine and their newsletter.
I had a great day and loved doing something different, it was also nice to meet so many lovely people that work for the trust. I have been asked to work on future events for the trust, and have been booked in for the next one in July. I look forward to working for them again.
Here are some of the images from the day:
I am in alot of social media groups where alot of photographers who freelance to the type of photography I do chat and post images in these groups for advice and feedback. A few months ago alot of professionals started posting that they had won different awards from ‘the Photographers Guild’ so I explored what this was as so many seemed to be successful, I thought it would be great for me to enter some of my work.
The Guild has so many different categories of photography that you can enter your work in. Alot of them aimed at the type of images I make, there is
NEWBORN & BABY CATEGORY
‘CLASSICAL PORTRAITURE’ CATEGORY
‘CONTEMPORARY PORTRAITURE’ CATEGORY
‘CREATIVE AND DIGITAL ART’ CATEGORY
‘EVENTS, SPORT AND ACTION’ CATEGORY
‘FLORA AND INSECTS’ CATEGORY
‘NATURE AND WILDLIFE’ CATEGORY
‘RURAL AND LANDSCAPE’ CATEGORY
There really is something for everyone with this organisation. The competition has such a variety, I think it’s great. However, the best thing about the photographers guild is the training courses you also get a discount off if you join. As well as the competitions there is also a great variety of different courses, I am always looking for different courses I could possibly go on post-university, I am interested in attending some newborn photography courses.
