June for me just whizzed by - it was a busy month of shooting events and conferences at the Liverpool International Festival for Business. Covering a couple of the larger conferences, there was a great range of different speakers and loads of networking opportunties, which make for great natural photos.
Clients nearly always want a range of images, from that big wide shots of the whole auditorium, to close up details of branding and registration areas. As well as informal images of seminars, break out rooms and coffee gatherings. Of course, the 'must have' shots of all the speakers are essential - and again a good selection of portrait and landscape images are great. I also try to work with clients to ensure we get some images with areas for copy or text to be dropped in. And at the brief stage I ask about usage - for example some clients want images for particular online slide shows, which might be unusual dimensions - ie wide but not very high.
Conference photography in Liverpool is an expanding part of my business, especially with the opening up of the Liverpool Exhibition Centre facility. There really is a conference for everything these days - from radiology in the NHS to comic conventions, through to UK exports events.
If you need a conference photographer then do feel free to send me a email to check if I am available to cover your event. I travel across the UK for commissions, so even if the location is London and we factor in travel, I'm sure I will able to offer a competitive quote.

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.
"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."
