A documentary film-maker uses Hypnotic Brass Ensemble photographs

Published on Thu Nov 26, 2009 by

A forthcoming documentary film about the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble (HBE) is to use some of my still photographs. HBE are a 9-piece, Chicago-based brass group, which caused a storm at UK festivals during 2009 and I was lucky enough to take photographs of their brilliant live performance at Womad Festival at Charlton Park, Malmesbury. A New York based film-maker called Reuben Atlas saw some of the images, got in contact and a deal was made. I also supplied a limited edition print of the image below for an exhibition at a gallery space in New York.

"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."
