If you work as a photographer – the NUJ is the union for you.

We can help provide you with advice on work-related matters including pay and conditions, legal issues, copyright matters, disputes with non-paying clients, employment problems, technical and ethical issues.

The union can also provide advice on contracts and training as well as the chance to meet other NUJ members and be part of a larger community of photographers fighting to defend the profession.

The NUJ represents freelance photographers, staff photographers and videographers.
