    How would I go about doing that? Just contact their helpdesks or is there a specific way to submit them?

    I guess so yes, just give them a call and ask how you could perhaps submit photo's first hand from the riots.

    Send in water marked images if they allow you to email them in, and make sure you get paid if they decide to use them.

    I was going to head up to clapham last night to take some photos, but then I heard that, in clapham at least, anyone who stood out or was taking photos was very likely to get mugged and abused and I think me going up with a large white 70-200 on my camera taking photos would not of gone down too well so decided to give it a miss. The photos you got are very good though, is an awful time but you can get some striking photos from it (as you have).

    Yeah I got a lot of attention while using my 70-200. Mostly from nice folk asking if I'm from the press etc. Even met a journo from The Evening Standard. As it was getting dark, there was noticeably more hoodies so decided time to call it and head home. I think actual press photographers could get behind police lines though for protection.

    I would like to head out and take pics of this, however, someone I know through photography had 8k of equipment robbed off him whilst he was shooting on Sunday. It is a joke.

    Yeah, I would not risk taking my 70-200 out. It's not so much the loss of the gear, just the possible violent reactions of the looters if they catch you taking pictures of them. I'm staying safe tbh.

    Ah man, that sucks. Is he OK and was it insured? I (stupidly) went out with about 4k's worth of uninsured (ran out a few weeks ago but is insured now) kit. Very silly I know. I was getting quite anxious when the light was going as I was walking through the back streets of Lewisham with hoodies drinking spirits from the bottle around.

    Whilst I agree with the reactions comment, photojournalists (not saying I am one) have to deal with the risks to get the shots. Last night was quite exciting for me but also quite intimidating. I can't even imagine the kind of buzz war photographers get.

    I can imagine during the day it would of been less dangerous, unfortunately I was working and completely out of the loop until I got home by which point it just looked too dangerous to head out on the news with very few police actually there. I think you would be right about press photographers, and probably any serious looking photographer for that matter, but without the body armour they wear I would feel more at risk there if there are projectiles being thrown rather than off to the side of the main crowd.

    I've been approached by a fairly big museum for use of one of my photographs for an up and coming publication. Might make a little bit of money out of my venture to Lewisham! :eek:

    Won't say who it is just yet but that's kind of exciting.

    OMG, that is disgusting. I just noticed I automatically put my feet on my chair going through your gallery. LOL. :teehee:
    And yeah, I've died. Despite that, you're really good. : D

    Btw, you seen that popular 'Spider hell' picture? If you haven't, google it. It's the one that comes up most. I can't even look at it. Like.... It's... HELL.

    I've been using a set of jessops extension tubes combined with my 18-55mm and have had pretty good results so far, probably better than could be achieved through macro filters. I too have my eyes on a dedicated macro lens though, probably the sigma 150mm f/2.8 macro. I need to save up for a bit though
    Ah, yes I've heard of extension tubes. I'm really new to all this btw haha! I will see if my Dad has some I can borrow (I've got him back into photography and he keeps buying loads of stuff!! winner!)

    I need to do research and find the one that will last me years...you know, get the right focal length one. I really don't know what I am saying
