As I, Hamlet, the managing director of United National Photographers, sit here in the vast quiet of our office, I’m reminded that the pulse of our photo agency lies not within these walls today, but out there with our freelance photographers. They are the ones out in the field, lenses at the ready, capturing moments for press and PR that keep the heart of our enterprise beating. Our editorial team, the unsung heroes who usually curate these captured slices of life, have momentarily traded their critical eye for the thrill of the Black Friday hunt.

Hence, with our freelancers diligently working on commissions, our editorial staff has granted themselves a reprieve – a lunch hour stretched into an afternoon, perhaps even a day for some, to navigate the sea of sales. “Shop till you drop,” they said, a mantra for the day, leaving their usual posts for the promise of once-a-year deals. It’s an unusual quiet that’s settled over UNP – a calm sea after a bustling storm of activity.
I remain, the sole guardian of this silent sanctum, musing over the dedication of our field photographers who continue the work uninterrupted, their commitment unwavering even as the retail world turns upside down with discounts and deals. Perhaps next year, we at UNP might just ride the wave of Black Friday, offering our own deals. But for now, I await the return of my team, eager to hear of their exploits and to welcome back the familiar symphony of our bustling office life.

When UNP commissioned freelance photographer Mark Bickerdike to cover Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s visit to RAFA Kidz Leeming, it was more than a routine assignment.

The photographic agency UNP and freelance photographer Mark Bickerdike expressed great satisfaction upon discovering that Prime Minister Rishi Sunak used their photographs on his official website. This recognition not only highlighted the quality of their work but also the importance of press and PR photography in conveying significant public events. During his visit to RAFA Kidz Leeming, Prime Minister Sunak engaged with children of military personnel and key nursery workers, immersing himself in the activities and facilities that make the nursery a cornerstone of support for RAF families. His participation in play activities and his visit to the Kidz Club facilities, as captured in Bickerdike’s photographs, were prominently featured, illustrating the day’s events and the nursery’s vital role in the community

RAFA Kidz Leeming, a childcare facility dedicated to serving the families of military personnel, was celebrating its one-year anniversary. The facility, known for its comprehensive childcare services, including wraparound care and support for children with special educational needs, was the backdrop for this significant visit.

For a news photographer like Bickerdike, the event presented both challenges and opportunities. The presence of the Prime Minister at a sensitive military location meant heightened security. Capturing the essence of the visit, while navigating these constraints, required not just technical skill but also a keen sense of timing and perspective.

Mark Bickerdike’s lens focused on various facets of the day. From the Prime Minister’s interactions with the children and nursery staff to his engagement with RAF Association representatives, each photograph told a story. The essence of media coverage photography is not just about capturing a moment but about telling the story behind it.

Nick Bunting, Secretary General for the Royal Air Forces Association, highlighted the importance of RAFA Kidz in his speech. Bickerdike’s photographs captured these earnest moments, emphasizing the nursery’s role in addressing the childcare needs of RAF families.

The Prime Minister’s visit was more than a ceremonial appearance; it was a nod to the Government’s commitment to supporting service families. Mark’s photography underscored this narrative, showcasing moments of genuine interaction and the Prime Minister’s acknowledgment of the RAF community’s contributions and challenges.

As a freelance photographer, Bickerdike’s role was crucial in conveying the essence of this event to a broader audience. His images needed to transcend the typical press coverage and resonate with both the immediate community at RAF Leeming and the wider public.

Victor De Jesus, the freelance photographer, has effectively captured a moment that tells a story about the challenges and routines involved in maintaining public order and safety.

Our editorial photographers have a distinct voice that echoes through their work. In editorial photography, each image is thoughtfully crafted to complement the narrative, enriching the story it’s meant to tell.

“Safeguarding Visual Creations: United National Photographers’ Stance on AI and Photo Protection”

United National Photographers (UNP), an organization with a deep-seated belief in the transformative power of Artificial Intelligence (AI), has shown exceptional foresight by appointing an AI Safety Officer. This strategic move comes in anticipation of the UK’s inaugural AI Safety Summit held at the historic Bletchley Park, a venue steeped in technological history.

United National Photographers Ltd.

Protecting photographs from AI is a complex challenge, and while the methods above offer some level of security, they are not foolproof. As we navigate this “wild west” of digital art protection, artists must stay vigilant, employing a combination of strategies to safeguard their creations. The future is uncertain, but by taking action now, artists can ensure they are prepared for whatever comes next.

In an era dominated by rapid technological advancements, the United National Photographers  is stepping up to play a pivotal role in AI safety and the protection of photographic works. With a deep understanding of the transformative power of Artificial Intelligence (AI), UNP has taken the initiative to appoint an AI Safety Officer, showcasing their dedication to responsible AI development and usage.

However, the responsibility of protecting photos does not lie with UNP alone. Photographers themselves play a crucial role in safeguarding their creative output. In this comprehensive guide, we explore the various strategies and tools at the disposal of photographers, helping them to protect their photos from being misused in AI training sets.

1. Tagging Your Photos with a Twist:

AI training sets require vast amounts of accurately labeled data to function correctly. However, with billions of images circulating the web, relying on automated systems to tag these photos becomes a necessity. Photographers can take advantage of this by intentionally mislabeling their photos. By using unrelated or incorrect tags, the photos become less usable for AI training purposes, ensuring their safety from data-hungry algorithms.

2. Staking Your Claim with Copyright Protection:

Clear and robust copyright statements serve as a photographer’s first line of defense. Copyright protection is automatically granted to photos as soon as they are captured, and photographers should explicitly forbid the use of their photos in AI datasets. With terms such as, “Any unauthorized use of the photos, including but not limited to AI training, is strictly prohibited,” photographers can set clear boundaries and take legal action if necessary.

3. The Art of Watermarking:

While watermarks might detract from the aesthetic appeal of a photo, they play a vital role in protecting photos from misuse. Larger, more complex watermarks can confuse AI algorithms, rendering the photos unusable for training purposes. Experimenting with stable diffusion images and invisible watermarks can provide an additional layer of security, tricking AI into ignoring the photos altogether.

4. Exploring Protective Techniques:

Beyond watermarking, photographers can employ a variety of techniques to protect their work. From using WordPress plugins and JavaScript to display images, to adopting the “Walled Garden” approach, these strategies add an extra layer of security, shielding photos from AI crawlers.

5. Legal Recourse and Preparedness:

In instances where preventive measures fall short, legal action becomes necessary. By establishing a strong legal framework and clear terms of use, photographers ensure they have the foundation to challenge unauthorized use of their photos.

By combining the forward-thinking stance of UNP on AI safety with proactive protective measures for photos, photographers are well-equipped to navigate the challenges of the digital age. The journey to safeguard visual creations is complex, but with diligence, awareness, and the right tools, photographers can ensure the security of their work now and in the future.

UNP, with its roster of talented photographers, stands out as a leading choice for PR and press photography needs in the UK.

The image is taken outside a Co-Op building, where multiple small white robots are displayed. Each robot is labeled with the text “I deliver shopping,” and there’s mention of downloading the “Starship Deliveries App” from the website “robotdelivery.co.uk.” The imagery clearly communicates the convenience of a touch-free shopping experience, echoing the article’s theme about Estonian robots enhancing Co-Op supermarket’s operations.

Statutory Self Employed Pay Possibly for Freelance Photographers in UK

We very much hope freelance (self-employed) photographers, who are the backbone of the industry, will not be forgotten and will get help from the government.  UNP Ltd and most photo agencies like ours, work only with freelancers across the UK and as the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to affect our usual working patterns, where we see wide cancellations until June & July this year, we are worried that it’ll affect our photographer and their livelihoods big time.

United National Photographers are here to support anyone affected but we are helpless unless the Government pays self-employed workers.  Below is how to bill went before Parliament.

 

Committee of the whole House: 23 March 2020

Member’s explanatory statement:

The purpose of this amendment is to make the Government ‘top up’ self-employed workers’ earnings to the lower of 80% of their net monthly earnings averaged over three years, or £2,917 a month.

 

  1. The Secretary of State must, by regulations, introduce a scheme of Statutory Self- Employment Pay.
  2. The scheme must make provision for payments to be made out of public funds to individuals who are a: self-employed, or b: freelancers.

    whichever is lower.
