Henlow Bridge Lakes Tribute Festival 2017

Last weekend saw the second annual Henlow Bridge Lakes Tribute Festival here in Bedfordshire, which was a great success with beautiful summer sunshine throughout the two days of the event.
The comperes were Alan Collins and Becky Phillips, with the main tributes being...
Madness (The Los Palmas 6)
The Blues Brothers (On a Mission)
Blondie (Atomic Blondie)
Abba (Gimme Abba)
The main acts were supported by the ever popular 'SwanVesta Social Club' who had a fantastic set on both days with their Cuban/Latino dance party extravaganza.
There were also appearances by local acts 'Something Else', 'Corruption', 'Acoustic Al', Becky Phillips, Cath Flynn with the Henlowettes and Alan Collins providing wacky entertainment for both the kids and the grown-ups throughout the weekend.

The weekend was so busy that I never stopped working long enough on my main job to be able to shoot the acts properly, but I did get a few pictures of the happy crowd, the staff and an odd band picture.


Next years Festival dates are July 6th and 7th 2018 with the lineup yet to be announced, but it promises to be bigger and better!

Banned from my local newspaper!

I recently bloggedabout the T&A Camera Club, and also the article from the NUJ which gave the reason for it, and now I have been punished!

I feel very strongly about my local newspaper, The Bradford Telegraph & Argus which is using local photographers for FREE content via their Facebook 'Camera Club' as part of the NEWSQUEST incentive to get free content for all their publications.

The group is offering a share of the £9,000 prize for the ones who can get the most FREE copy and images in their centres.
It does not bode well for any young people who were hoping to make a living from Journalism in the future. Other publications pay for content (I've had six published for payment in the last month alone) so any 'photographer' on my friends' list who is providing free content for 'exposure' is free to unfriend me, because if YOU value your work, you should put some actual monetary value on it.
BTW I commented on their 'Camera Club' group and…

Staying legal with photos posted on your own internet posts.

You've written a fantastic post about your visit to France and just need a couple of pictures to help pad it out and be more interesting, after all, 'a picture is worth a thousand words', so do you just grab one from a Google search?


Yes you can... but be prepared for the owner to come after you for infringing their copyright after they find it being used without permission on your internet platforms.

The best way to obtain pictures to use within your own web content, be that on Facebook, Blogs or any other internet platform (within reason), is to buy a licence which will cover you for the use.

I allow my own images to be downloaded for such uses in two sizes on my website here... mickflynnimages.

They are all provided instantly, do not contain a watermark and are ideal to illustrate your stories and articles.


There is a choice of download size which will cover all your needs and keep you legal. Images can be searched by keyword using the search function from my extensive …

Love to see your pictures in print? So do Newsquest.

It is very flattering to see your pictures in the newspapers and magazines with your name at the side of them isn't it?
Well here's your chance to join a Facebook group which wants to share your 'local' pictures for free! Yes, it won't cost you anything, and it won't cost them anything either, and the beauty of it is, (for them) that they can use it right across the NEWSQUEST group, also at no cost to them.

"Send your snaps of everything from community events large or small, new angles on familiar places or even breaking news if you find yourself in the middle of the action."

Yes, they even want you to post your pictures from live news events, and let's face it, it beats having to employ professional photographers or actually pay for stock or news images.
Newsquest now employs more salespeople than journalists.

This is from my local newspaper, but it looks like it is being rolled out at all the NEWSQUEST titles.
