So, do you photograph proms? It is a question I've been getting a lot lately.
Well, the answer is, Most Definitely!
A prom is an important milestone of school life. You will want quality prom pictures that will last for years. I'm your guy.
Unheard of in the UK 10 years ago, the prom is now the highlight of the year for school-leavers. Back in the day we didn't have school proms to mark the completion of GCSEs and A-levels. We had end of exam discos if we were lucky. Now there are often 'passing out' celebrations for Year 11 students (aged 15-16) and Year 13 (aged 17-18) from no-frills dinners in school halls to bespoke extravaganzas in five-star venues with DJs, live music and of course a lot of dressing up.
A cultural phenomenon, that arrived from the US on the back of incredibly successful shows such as Glee, Hannah Montana and High School Musical, it has quickly become the norm here. So join the growing trend and arrange some professional photos of students with their best friends and mates together.
I offer a private service for friends and families to take photographs before you arrive at the prom, or on location. Traditionally the photo experience has been to shoot individuals or a student with their date. Often this is the photo that parents insist upon! But I'm more than happy to do larger groups and make the shoot fun - I know teens won't want to hang around ages, so believe me, when I say I work quickly. I will take a variety of both candid and posed photographs, I have the experience to capture them in the best possible way.
All photos will be edited and placed in a password protected online gallery after the prom - useful for relatives to order prints. Also the collection will be available to download online at both full resolution for printing and web ready for social media. This is a fee based service and the cost depends on how long you need me and the distance I have to travel.
Trust me to create images and memories that will be remembered forever with our beautiful Liverpool prom photography.
"Absolutely Fantastic! We booked David for our prom - it's been a great couple of years and we really wanted a lasting memory of our friendship and the night. David was spot on with communications right from the initial request up until the photos were delivered. He had no problem with a group of friends clubbing together to get some pro photos - we didn't trust the college to organise lol. And on the day, he was relaxed and happy to include any groups that we asked for. We were so pleased with the photos and couldnâ't wait to share them. We have received some lovely comments from friends and family - he includes low-res versions and a store for physical prints. A very friendly and approachable person who clearly loves what he does, totally recommended" Miss S, Liverpool.

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!
