I was recently commissioned by Splendid Communications of London to photograph prize winners for end client Endsleigh Insurance. The publicity event was called the 'Ultimate Student Party' and the winners were given all the things that make a party go off: a kicking soundsystem, DJs, bouncers and some vouchers for food and drink. Obviously the challenge was to get images that showed the party in a good light and didn't attract any negative press - so no overt drunkness and few if any alcohol drinks or branding on show. Tricky when it comes to students, but thanks go out to the party-goers who were helpful and cooperative and the professional Birmingham security team from Leon Security Services.
Images featured across social media networks and were received very well by the commissioning PR exectutive:

"The photos were great – they were exactly what we were after in terms of capturing the networking, the high profile speakers, the Awards winners and also the fun of the Awards dinner. It was great to have such an involved photographer at the event capturing as much as possible and we would be very happy to use you again"
