RIP: Leonard Cohen - photographs at the Big Chill Festival 2008

Published on Fri Nov 11, 2016 by

Back when I shot the below image I was a recent convert - while i had been aware of his music - I was persuaded to see him at Glastonbury a month earlier that year. A super hot Sunday afternoon spent with friends watching Neil Diamond, Goldfrapp and then Leonard on the Pyramid - lovely and I quickly became a fan. So covering the Big Chill Festival a few weeks later, he was high on my list of priorities, both to photograph and enjoy. The below image was my favourite and I've got an A3 print of it hanging in my hallway. If would like to licence editorial usage please contact me as soon as possible. RIP Leonard.

"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."
