We specialise in the creative application of digital technology to deliver high quality commercial photographic services, including PR, editorial, and press calls, expertise with on location industrial and architectural photography, and large scale event photography, such as conferences, exhibitions, music festivals and other live performances. 

Our approach is based on matching – if not exceeding – the photographic requirements of our clients, both creatively and technically. We achieve this by first thoroughly exploring and understanding each commission, establishing how images are to be used and how the resulting photographs can best convey key messages and meet marketing objectives.

DJC Design was established in Merseyside by David J Colbran in 2005. David is a photographer and web designer. Before moving to Liverpool, David worked part-time as a freelance photographer and was also the IT Manager at the University of London.

DJC Design specialises in building and maintaining accessible, responsive web sites and providing IT consultancy services. We specialise in MODX and Wordpress content management systems. We also work with a small group of experts covering most elements of new media production and development. These include graphic designers, video and film-makers, web content and copy writers and internet technologists.

While based in Merseyside, we cover the North-West and work across the UK.

David holds comprehensive Public & Products Liability insurance and Professional Indemnity insurance at £10M per claim and is a member of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) and holds a full UK press card.

A few images from a little commission at Tuebrook ABC (amateur boxing club) - 1a Marlborough Rd, Liverpool L13 8A a couple of years back. The project documented how the sport of boxing is helping excluded from school young people. It encourages them to channel and focus their excess energy and improve their life skills.


Many had a diagnosis of ADHD and their inability to concentrate meant they fell behind academically from a young age, causing bad behaviour to spiral. According to statistics from the UK ADHD Partnership, children with ADHD have more than 100 times greater risk of being permanently excluded from school than other children.


When I was there kids were punching the bags or sparring as music played away in the background. And the smell of sweat and chalk permeated the air.


Of course I am not going to show any faces or include names, just a few little quotes. A great little project on reflection and it certainly seemed to be helping kids change their lives.

“Many of the young people we see have anxiety and confidence issues and struggle to work with others. Initially when kids start there can be arguments and disruption. But after a while we see confidence growing and mini goals achieved. Enabling them to feel good about themselves is very important.”

Global Day of Action for Climate Justice in Liverpool, Saturday 6th November 2021.

The event was been organised by a coalition of environmental groups from across the Liverpool City Region. The march started at South Liverpool’s Sefton Park, followed by a march to the city centre, before culminating in a rally in Derby Square. The demonstration is part of a Global Day of Action for Climate Justice bringing together a wide variety of different movements ‘to build power for system change.’ It was being held as talks continue at the ongoing COP26 meeting of world leaders to discuss action on climate change, which began in Glasgow.

"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."
