Being able to adjust to a changing brief and think on my feet is all part and parcel of being a good photographer. A PR company contacted me and wanted images of a new ferry entering the port at Birkenhead for their client Stenaline. It was an early morning arrival and I was meeting the port manager at the terminal for her to escort me through security and to the ship. However the weather was against us and it was one of those foggy mornings on the Mersey where visibility was down to 100 metres!
A quick chat with the marketing person at Stenaline and the brief changed to include some group and VIP shots with the ship's captain and then on the ship itself for some press images of the new refurbished lounges and restaurants. No problem for me as I had the necessary lights with me. So we found some willing volunteers amongst the staff and got on with task.

"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."
