Following the successful NUJ media event outside New Scotland Yard to highlight the issues photographers have with S76 of the Counter-Terrorism Act 2008, NUJ members organised an ‘I’m a photographer, not a terrorist – Know Your Rights’ meeting.’
Jason Parkinson was commissioned to shoot and edit two short films for the evening.The film is funded by the NUJ.

The first film on terrorism legislation features Anna Mazzola and Peter Macdiarmid.
The second film features Andrew Wiard, freelance photographer, who speaks about the history and the future of the press card.
We also compiled a slideshow featuring good and bad policing which is part of an on-going Photo-Forum project. If you have images to contribute to this project please send jpeg files in sRGB colour space, maximum size 1024 pixels on the long side to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Photo-Forum is organized by photographers as a place for working photographers across the spectrum to bring images, ideas, photo stories, approaches and work in progress for supportive debate and criticism. It runs monthly on the second Thursday of the month in Central London.
