The Children's Trust Dads Day Out held at Dunsfold Park , 14th May 2011. Passengers pay to be a passenger in their favourite supercars and all proceeds go to the charity (Callum Winton)

A long time ago I posted about the G20 protest which I attended to photograph the events as they unfolded.
I was (un)lucky enough to be at the place where Ian Tomlinson was pushed to the ground by PC Simon Harwood and I photographed the first shots of him lying on the floor before I ran off to get medical help.

The picture I took when I returned to him was the main one used by The Sun the next day.

The case is now coming to a close and I’ve just read today that the jury concluded that "Mr Tomlinson had been unlawfully killed and that PC Harwood had used "excessive and unreasonable force"".

My G20 Stock Images

Is Simon Harwood the evil face of the Police force as the Media and protest groups would have us believe?
Doubtful. Most police that I know just want to help and protect the public.
I guess there are exceptions to any rule, but only his friends and family know his true character.

Should he pay for his actions on the 1st April 2009?
Two regular guys go to a pub on a Friday night and during the night a scuffle breaks out.
One of the guys gets caught up in the fight and hits someone who falls, smacks their head on the ground and doesn’t get up.
The guy will go to court and, even though it was an accident, he will be tried and charged for manslaughter.

Pretty much what happened at the G20. An action that was the catalyst for an unfortunate death.

Time will tell on the final result, but I’m hoping that justice will run it’s course.
What’s good for the goose and all that 😉

What is unusual is that, for the first time, the misconduct hearing of a police officer will be held in public. It looks like they’re offering the lamb up for public slaughter in order to appease the image of the police force (look – we’re reprimanding our own).

On a positive note – the ‘blood money’ I received for my picture in the sun which I gave to the Guide Dogs for the Blind has matured and Otis (the black lab I helped sponsor) is now with his new owner 🙂

It’s been quiet for the last month and in that time I’ve set up my own Stock Resource for images to be licensed from me directly.

When any photographer, graphic artist or videographer put content on an online agency, they have to hand to the agency 50%-92% of the fees they should have received on each license sold.

Not only does this mean that the creator only receives 8-50% of the work’s worth, they also have no say if the agency negociates a lower fee which means you get even less.

Recently iStock made a change to their terms where they said they weren’t able to survive on their current income and so were going to take a higher percentage.

This finally pushed contributers beyond breaking poins and instigated a backlash.
