Event and conference facilities

Recently commissioned to spend a day with Liverpool John Moores University's events team. Their goal was to produce new images of facilities for marketing and publicity materials. I worked closely before the shoot with the team to suggest what they could do in preparation; dressing the rooms, ensuring they were clear of clutter and clean and finally that all the rooms were available and not being used. We managed to cover facilities across 4 sites and even found time for some tea and cake

"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."
