Black Lives Matter protest Liverpool June 2020

Published on Tue Jun 16, 2020 by

It should always and forever be said, Black Lives Matter. If you don't agree with this sentiment, I'm not sure why you are here reading this post, you're not welcome.

7000 plus people gathered at 'The Rialto' in Toxteth, Liverpool on Saturday the 13th of June 2020 to march to the city centre as a Black Lives Matter demonstration. The significance of the Rialto Ballroom must be noted - it was burnt to the ground during riots in July 1981, which The Scarman Report concluded was due to "complex political, social and economic factors" and sparked by tensions between police and the local community.

Fast forward to 2020 and the atmosphere was peaceful and upbeat. Lots of young people and families. Also incredible support from people in cars on route and from doorsteps and windows. The march concluded on the plateau of St George's Hall with a samba band and some speeches from activists and community leaders.

Important times and I felt I had to document the scenes. All the images are available to licence for usage - please contact me directly.

Colour reflection experiments

Inspired by some recent colour and reflection experiments when on a holiday in Newcastle, I've had a delve back through my archive and found some nice image contrasts.

Exhibition Stand Photography at Trade Shows and Conferences

I have been photographing exhibition stands for many years and just realised I have never really posted about it before. Perhaps a few images in the end of year review, or as part of a bigger conference job. But I've been commissioned recently by a few stand designers and thought I would write some thoughts and highlight some favourite images from the archive.

"David is an amazing Liverpool based photographer. Not just in his professionalism and demeanour, but in his clear understanding of how to create the best images for clients. We worked together on a number of commercial projects and it was quality both in terms of content and prompt delivery of files every time. Absolutely no problem recommending him, he is a true pro at what he does !"
