Africa Oye 2011 photography from one of best festivals in the UK

Published on Tue Jun 21, 2011 by

Africa Oye is the UK's biggest free African music festival and proved again to be a massive success with 30 000 plus people visiting. The sun was shining for most of the weekend and the artists were absolutely brilliant. Highlights for me were an amazing singer from Mali called Fatoumata Diawara and the Gangbe Brass Band from Benin. Headliner Martha Griffiths stole the show though with a brilliant set on Saturday night.

"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."
