Joseph Clemson Posted June 23, 2016 Share Posted June 23, 2016 The forum has seen various topics recently around the subjects of legality, accreditation, Alamy contract and changes thereto, making it clear that the buck stops with the photographer, not Alamy. As I have come to freelance photography and photojournalism from the bottom up, I have yet to join any professional body or taken out any indemnity insurance, but I am thinking I really should. My main concerns are getting legal help in the (hopefully unlikely) event of being subject to legal action and expertise and representation without having to dig deep into my empty pockets to hire a lawyer. Also getting accreditation to the occasional ticketed event would be useful (I often visit agricultural shows, amongst other events). What would the collective experience of the Alamy forum suggest. National Union of Journalists? A professional photography association? Free standing indemnity insurance? Something else? I am in the UK and only work in the UK.
