EPUK is an email group for professional editorial photographers who want to talk business. We don’t do techie stuff or in-crowd gossip. We don’t talk cameras or computers. What we talk about are the nuts and bolts of being in business – like copyright, licensing, fees and insurance.
Inspired by the original Editorial Photographers email discussion list, EPUK has informal links with other photographic organisations such as the Association of Photographers (AoP) and the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) and the PLUS Coalition . However, EPUK remains an independent organisation.
Everything EPUK does is produced by full-time photographers working in their spare time. EPUK’s moderators work behind the scenes making the list run smoothly, as well as vetting membership, writing website articles and working with other photographers groups.
EPUK is the trading name of Editorial Photographers UK Ltd, registered in England & Wales no. 6125535.
Who can join EPUK ?
All photographers working for the UK or Irish editorial markets are welcome to apply for membership.
How much does it cost ?
Zilch, nada, nothing: EPUK is entirely free to its members, although we occasionally ask for voluntary donations to go towards covering the running costs such as our server, domains and software. EPUK is generally funded by hosting other lists, and by website promotions and advertising.
How exactly does it work ?
The main EPUK list works via email discussions. Say you want to ask a question about a magazine’s rates, or a newspaper’s record of rights grabs: you put your query in an email to the list address. That then gets sent out to each of EPUK’s 1000+ members, each of whom can reply, and their reply is then posted to all EPUK members in return.
Because of the speed of our servers, this pretty much happens in ‘real time’, so you can get an answer very, very quickly. In a typical day, there will be usually be six or seven topics being discussed, with around 30 emails.
