Record breaking crowds of around 40 000 people on Saturday marked the start of another Africa Oye. It's one of my favourite events, a short walk from my house, with some brilliant world music artists and incredible vibe at Liverpool's Sefton Park. I've been covering the festival now over 10 years for an agency and still love working it. Massive thanks to all the organisers behind the scenes, who do an amazing job. Anyway a few highlights. As ever please contact me directly if you want to use / licence any images. Thanks.

In between meetings I met business man Will and got a few classic portraits on the waterfront and of course the iconic Pierhead. So if you doing business in Liverpool, need some quick but quality coverage of your time here, drop me a message.
In 2006 I was contacted by a design agency here on Merseyside to help them photograph their forthcoming debut album cover. Exciting times !
If you need last minute coverage of a speaker, a meeting, debate session, protest, fringe event or anything connected with the Labour Party conference Sunday 08 to Wednesday 11 October 2023 I might be able to help.
