The Faces of Barking Riverside

Calling all residents!

We are looking for local people to take part in professional photo and video shoots, to capture the real faces and places of Barking Riverside. From The Wilds and the Rivergate Centre to Oystercatcher Park and the Thames foreshore, we want to highlight the brilliant locations across the site while also celebrating the diverse and vibrant community that lives here.

Never done anything like this before? Rest assured, all participants will receive a full brief before the shoot, outlining exactly what locations we’ll be photographing you in, and giving you advice on what to expect and how the day will run.

The photos will feature in some of our marketing campaigns, and as a thank you for your time, all participants will receive a £150 shopping voucher.
