British Association of Applied Linguistics

British Association for Applied Linguistics conference

A few weeks ago I photographed the latest BAAL conference at Manchester Metropolitan University.

I find it really interesting to cover conferences as you get thrown into the deep end of academic research in subjects that you previously hadn’t really thought all that much about. BAAL this year was no exception, some extremely interesting themes and insights into language acquisition, learning foreign languages and linguistic changes brought about by emerging technologies.

As freelance photographers we often don’t get feedback on our work after the event, so it was very pleasing to get this response from the conference organiser:

‘I’ve just downloaded the photos – absolutely fantastic. I’ve never given a photographer such a haphazard brief and had it nailed so well, so thanks very much. I wouldn’t hesitate to use you again based on these.’

If you’d like me to photograph a conference for you either in Manchester, the North or across the country, please get in touch via email or using the contact form on the About page of the site.
