A trip to PA


I've had a fun couple of weeks teaching NCTJ photojournalism students at the Up To Speed journalism training school which is based in the Bournemouth Echo building.  Quite apart from the novelty in being back working in this fabulous Art Deco newspaper HQ, it's proved to be a really interesting experience.  Last week I took the students to a seminar at the Press Association in London.  What a great day that was, with thought provoking talks from various seasoned photographers working for PA and regional dailies and agencies.  It would have been perfect if the heavens hadn't opened as we made our way back to the underground in pouring rain. We've done lots more work in Bournemouth too, photographing everything from taxi drivers and council gardeners to elderly visitors and the shockingly  declining shopping streets in the town centre.
