NFU Conference

NFU Conference

Switched on farmers

Last week I covered the National Farmers Union annual conference at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel near the NEC. It is the second year that I have been the official conference photographer at the event which takes place over two very busy days.

My main objective was to provide the NFU website with a continuous feed of live pictures. I set up my laptop alongside the web team in the press room and dashed backwards and forwards between conference rooms, workshops and break out sessions.

We managed to get pictures of the main speakers online before they had finished their speeches, as well as pictures of all the photocalls, press conferences and general colour.

Combining my photography with online reports, live webstreaming of all the keynote speeches, a flickr account and a lively twitter debate the conference made excellent use of new technology and social media.
