I’m planing to write a story about Croatian soldiers in UN, based in Western Sahara for Croatian newspapers. I’m stuff photographer for news papers but this would be my “private project”, so I have to organize and pay everything my self, so any advice how to save money would be most welcome.
So far I got a permission from Croatian ministry of defense to talk to soldiers, and I’m still waiting for permission from UN.
If I get the permission from UN, I was wondering if someone can give me few tips what can I expect in UN mission?
What is allowed to photograph, and what is not allowed? How to behave?
What kind of permission are they giving, only for couple of hours, or can I spend couple of days in mission? Who determines the time I can spend within mission? If I get permission to spend more than one afternoon, is it possible to sleep inside mission, or I need to find accommodation outside mission?
