Light Night is a late evening celebration of culture in Liverpool. Galleries, museums, and cultural institutions open up their doors to installations and performances, with street theatre and music, the event proved popular with visitors. I was shooting for news agencies, so it was nice being able to have a good wander around, with an open ended brief and with family in tow I covered the earlier and children friendly events, which were all great. Anyway a few highlights below. As always, please ask me first, if you would like to use any images and of course all are available for commercial licence.

"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."
