Business public relations photography in Merseyside

Published on Thu Dec 15, 2022 by

Another warehouse shoot. Again over the water in Ellesmere Port. This time is was for HSBC. They recently funded online retailers BargainMax expansion into brand new facilities just off the motorway network and some of their senior team were visiting. BargainMax specialise in value branded toys from Lego through to bigger items like scooters and obviously at this time of year was super busy in the run up to Christmas.

The client needed a variety of shots including PR direct to camera, general views of the warehouse and more candid documentary style frames during a tour.

It was fascinating learning about the warehouse efficiency improvements the business is adopting. They are optimising all available space - going for tall storage units and special equipment for moving pallets and boxes. Another thing pointed out was various types of shelving and racks for different sized products. And finally they've adopted the latest technology - radio frequency identification (RFID) readers to improve accuracy of transactions, and reduce picking errors. Alongside electronic 'rails' in the floor between racks which guide the giant forklift trucks. Finally we were shown their new workstations, the final part of the system, where items are boxed ready for shipping to customers.

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.

Portraits in the press and social media

I had some portrait images in the business press trade magazine with a law client from a recent commission ....

"As a new business, it was very important to me to get the right publicity photographs for my marketing materials. When I met David, he listened carefully to what I was trying to achieve with my brand, and then produced fabulous photographs that were exactly what I needed. He was extremely professional throughout but also nice and friendly. Myself and my clients found it easy to relax with him, which was essential to create the right vibe for the shoot. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
