Working through the coronavirus pandemic: suggestions for protecting or diversifying your income; and a list of resources if you are facing hardship.
Our top priority is always to support photographers, and never more so than through the current coronavirus pandemic. Although we have had to cancel most of our planned face to face events, we are planning the best way to bring all our programme online for remote delivery, while retaining the sense of community that is so important.
We’ve set up a survey for your thoughts and suggestions about how best to deliver this, if you have a few minutes to send any thoughts and comments.
