Blog

Welcome to my blog, this is where I post random images, thoughts and musings on photography.  This is kind of a diary and not all photos will be the end product. Its basically a dump for all my ideas and mental chatter. All opinions are my own and should usually be taken with a pinch of salt. 

Shooting the Devil - UKIP party conference

Sometimes in my line of work you end up covering something that may cause you to have to push personal feelings and beliefs to the background. I enjoy covering political events and when I was asked to cover the UKIP spring conference in Bolton I was Ok with the situation. I am not overly political (although, like many, I have become much more switched on recently), but I do struggle with my moral compass when covering UKIP and other such organisations. I really have to switch off and focus on what is happening, visually.  

In the grand scheme of fairness these events should be documented even if the message they spread is not one you agree with.  The conference had various speakers but I had the feeling that most people were there for Nigel Farage and the new UKIP leader, Paul Nuttell. 

These are interesting times indeed!
