A few weeks back I was commissioned by a PR company who look after a UK based manufacturing business, who make top of the range building insulation material. They specifically needed images of the product being installed and had worked with the construction company to allow me access and some willing volunteers to appear in the shots. All great until I arrived on site at the new Royal Liverpool Hospital and the foreman explained the installation was now at the 6th floor ! I was shown the building crane and talked through a few safety rules - trying to not appear nervous of heights, I readied my equipment and climbed aboard.
It actually wasn't as scary as I imagined - the crane was totally secure, didn't wobble and I was looked after by a great, experienced team. At the correct level, we got the images of the insulation as required. And before too long we were heading down to street level, for some more regular industrial photography of the construction site itself. All in all, an interesting mornings work !

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!
Another Liverpool industrial photography commission under the belt and more hi-viz PPE added to the boot of the car. This time nice and local in the Old Swan, a couple of miles away from home. It was for the Lister Drive Greener Grid Park installation which is currently under construction.

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."
