Following John Walmsley's very popular session at the National Photography Symposium 2018, Redeye, the photography network, is delighted to be working in partnership with NUJ Manchester and Salford branch to welcome him back to present his workshop on what you can do if you find your photography or visual art copied and stolen.  

Like many other photographers, John reports that he has earned more money through chasing up infringements than he has through legitimate use. In this highly recommended and eye-opening workshop, John will guide you through the crucial steps you can take to identify lost earnings and get paid.

The workshop will cover:

  • Best practice for managing the distribution of your work.
  • How to find sites where your work appears without your permission.
  • How to identify the cases where payment is likely.
  • Dos and don'ts for approaching infringers.
  • The essential steps for getting paid.

Who is it for?

Photographers and visual creators at any level, including students, enthusiasts and professionals.  

You are encouraged to bring your laptop with you to follow instructions, and John will answer your questions
