IanDavidson Posted January 14, 2020 Share Posted January 14, 2020 For those of you who don’t know, College Green is a small green area across from the Houses of Parliament in London. It is occasionally used as a “media village” during times of political drama. It is actually owned by the Parliamentary Estate and under control of Black Rod and the Speaker. This is a major photo spot for us freelancers with press cards. It puts us on the same footing as the BBC, PA etc in terms of access. I have had published photos of politicians taken there (and Photographed Brian May there last week). The Speaker is proposing to stop the media using this area because of the disruption by protesters. This would block us from getting photos and once more give advantage to PA, Reuters etc who have access to the Houses of Parliament. I will be writing to the Speaker and my MP to protest and would urge Alamy and individual contributors to do the same. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
