A few weeks back I was commissioned by a PR company who look after a UK based manufacturing business, who make top of the range building insulation material. They specfically needed images of the product being installed and had worked with the construction company to allow me access and some willing volunteers to appear in the shots. All great until I arrived on site at the new Royal Liverpool Hospital and the foreman explained the installation was now at the 6th floor ! I was shown the building crane and talked through a few safety rules - tyring to not appear nervous of heights, I readied my equipment and climbed aboard.
It actually wasn't as scary as I imagined - the crane was totally secure, didn't wobble and I was looked after by a great, experienced team. At the correct level, we got the images of the insulation as required. And before too long we were headng down to street level, for some more regular industrial photography of the construction site itself. All in all, an interesting mornings work !
Getting a portrait booked in for a business profile can be a new and daunting experience for some people. Many of my clients have never had a professional photoshoot before and of course it is up to me to make them comfortable ...
A very busy and interesting weekend working for Marise Payne Australia's Minister for Foreign Affairs at various venues across the city. It was my first time working at a high profile diplomatic summit.
A couple of weeks ago I was honoured to be asked to present and exhibit some of my artworks at the “Unmasked” Digifest and annual research conference 2021, based in Durban, South Africa
"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."
