Banned from my local!

May 01, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I recently blogged about the T&A Camera Club, and also the article from the NUJ which gave the reason for it, and now I have been punished!

I feel very strongly about my local newspaper, The Bradford Telegraph & Argus which is using local photographers for FREE content via their Facebook 'Camera Club' as part of the NEWSQUEST incentive to get free content for all their publications.

The group is offering a share of the £9,000 prize for the ones who can get the most FREE copy and images in their centres.

It does not bode well for any young people who were hoping to make a living from Journalism in the future.

Other publications pay for content (I've had six published for payment in the last month alone) so any 'photographer' on my friends list who is providing free content for 'exposure' is free to unfriend me, because if YOU value your work, you should put some actual monetary value on it.

BTW I commented on their 'Camera Club' group and was promptly banned, and have now been fully blocked from the T&A Facebook page after leaving a critical comment on their latest article about all their new free content from the 'Camera Club'.

 

If you want your children to be journalists, don't buy any NEWSQUEST publications as their multi million pound company are cheapskates!

I'm not in Yorkshire right now, I'm down south...
