Bedroom tax images used in The Guardian

Published on Thu Mar 28, 2013 by

Loads of interest in my images from bedroom tax protests here on Merseyside in the last couple of weeks. The mainstream media seems to have enventually caught up with a big story in local communities. I covered direct action at the Liverpool Mutal Homes offices at the beginning of February, where tenants gathered outside and then for a short period of time occuipied the reception. Next up was the massive street protest by grassroots group Stand Up In Bootle, where hundreds of people marched against the changes in housing benefit. Finally there was a large public rally in Liverpool city centre against the bedroom tax.

Images from Bootle have been used in multiple stories in The Guardian.

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
