I've been a fan of the Writing on the Wall festival since I moved here from London nearly ten years ago now. They've had some brilliant events and interesting guests and the 2014 series has just launched and runs until the end of May. The theme is Shell Shock, looking at conflict and writing during the centenary of the start of the First World War. They launched with a children's writing competition and the release of doves into the sky as a symbol of peace at the Bluecoat Art Centre, Liverpool, England. And then on Saturday saw the unveiling of the George Garrett archive at the Central Library, with the preview of a film and some interesting guest speakers about the archive and the development of the project.

"As a new business, it was very important to me to get the right publicity photographs for my marketing materials. When I met David, he listened carefully to what I was trying to achieve with my brand, and then produced fabulous photographs that were exactly what I needed. He was extremely professional throughout but also nice and friendly. Myself and my clients found it easy to relax with him, which was essential to create the right vibe for the shoot. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
