Hi all, I would like to have a go at crowd/street/reportage style photography but I am struggling as to where to start. Does anyone know if there is a website/listing of potential demonstrations/rallies etc I could go to ?. Thanks

Re marches, demonstrations and rallies, you need to poke about within mainly FaceBook groups, Twitter, sign up for mailing lists and monitor various environmental, political, TU, Brexit, AntiBrexit, left, right and animal rights groups etc. You mentioned Skipton, that's a bit quiet, Leeds will have more happening. Check drill or drop for anti fracking activities in Yorkshire and Lancashire. Always research who ever you might be photographing. Good luck.

Graham, as you earlier mentioned Skipton I'm assuming you are Yorkshire based, so this might be of interest. An example of info in an email from the League Against Cruel Sports. Tomorrow, 10th August, Rally organised by League Against Cruel Sports and Ban Bloodsports on Yorkshire’s Moors in Bradford calling for ban on grouse shooting. Amongst others, speaker Emmerdale star Nick Miles (Jimmy King). 12:00–15:00 Centenary Sq, Sunbridge Rd, Bradford, BD1 1HY. I photographed last years similar event in Hebden Bridge, one photo sold via agency to the Times. Won't be covering this protest, too busy in London tomorrow.
