Recently I was commissioned to cover a British Medical Association conference by BMA News. BMA News is the main channel of communication between the BMA and its members, offering up-to-date information about the work of the BMA and policy changes from Governments. It was at the Liverpool ACC Arena Conference Centre and was attended by about 500 GPs from all around the country.
The conference followed a formal programme of motions, with speakers proposing them, then followed by supporters and objectors - at a very quick pace. My brief was to capture every speaker on the stage and importantly a photograph of either their badge or their name as it flashed on the presentation screen to allow the journalists to correctly identify people in the magazine and in press releases. Also required, were images from the morning session, ready for evening press deadlines - so it was a busy hour grabbing a sandwich while editting on my laptop.
Fiona at BMA News said "Thanks for the great images and thank you for your work today :) I have just got the Dropbox ones - they came through speedy - hoorah!"

Getting a portrait booked in for a business profile can be a new and daunting experience for some people. Many of my clients have never had a professional photoshoot before and of course it is up to me to make them comfortable ...
A very busy and interesting weekend working for Marise Payne Australia's Minister for Foreign Affairs at various venues across the city. It was my first time working at a high profile diplomatic summit.
A couple of weeks ago I was honoured to be asked to present and exhibit some of my artworks at the “Unmasked” Digifest and annual research conference 2021, based in Durban, South Africa
"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."
