I have been busy working at two music festivals shooting for specialist picture agency ArenaPAL.
In Liverpool, over a sunny weekend early June, Sefton Park hosted Africa Oye. It is the UK's biggest free African music festival and proved again to be a massive success with 30 000 plus people visiting. Definately one of the highlights of the year for me and just a short walk from my house - great !

Later in June as usual, I covered Glastonbury Festival for ArenaPAL in Somerset for the third year running with full press acreditation. The weekend was hot and thankfully mudless. Highlights below.

"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."
