A Photographer’s Handbook: How to take pictures of an EU funded project
Photographs are a very effective means through which EU-funded projects can visualise their activities. They can show actions, people, successes, outcomes etc. And apart from the obvious accompaniment to press releases and for publications, they can be used in different ways, from an exhibition, to a calendar, to a slide-show on a website. But their angle and quality should be effective. To help photographers take good photos of projects, the EU Neighbourhood Info Centre has produced a Photographer’s Handbook, in English, French, Arabic and Russian.
The Handbook (an updated 2012 edition) comprises some basic rules that need to be followed, not only on the angle and focus, but also on issues such as resolution, copyright and respecting EU visibility guidelines. The publication also includes guidelines for projects, with many examples of good and bad photos and ideas of how they can be used. (EU Neighbourhood Info Centre)
