50 years on and the Beatles are still big news in Liverpool. Thousands of tourists and millions of pounds are spent as visitors come to the city to pinpoint all the locations that have a link to the band's history or are currently running cultural events linked to them.
A University of Liverpool study published in Feb. 2016 suggested that impact of Beatles specific activities was calculated to be a £39m turnover and 690 jobs in 2014. While indirect impact - the degree to which Beatles-related business benefits local suppliers was calculated to be a total of £15.64m turnover and 276 jobs in the city in 2014. Overall the researchers suggested the net impact of the Beatles legacy in 2014 was £81.9m turnover and 2,335 jobs. Which is pretty impressive!
Of course I am a fan of their music and have a big archive of Beatles related images. I sell these directly but also through picture libraries. Doing a quick review, I've sold quite a few in the last year here they all are.

As I always say, Africa Oye is my favourite festival and probably the nearest, being about 15 minutes walk from my home. Slightly delayed, is the 30th anniversary of the festival a few weeks ago.
Back on the blog with a quick update on recent business and commercial photography commissions. Working with a housing association, a bike charity, a medical society, a recruitment agency and a dental practice.
A really interesting commission working with Livv Housing documenting a fire and rescue exercise in high-rise residential apartments in Kirkby. These are the people who will literally save your life!
"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."
