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.

Africa Oye - I’ve been covering the event for 14 years, so was particularly gutted to hear it has been cancelled. Ever since I moved to Liverpool I have supplied images of the live acts to specialist agent ArenaPAL, where I have built up quite an extensive archive. Images have been licenced to a wide variety of national and international publications over the years. So I’m returning to my archive and showcasing my favourites here, remembering the party times of Oye ! @africaoye
