Photography review of the year 2017

Published on Tue Dec 19, 2017 by

2017 proved to be another busy year here at DJC Design, I've done quite a bit of travelling, won some fab new clients and had a heap of really interesting commissions. Obviously I am not going to list everything - but below are a few of my favourites that hopefully demonstrates the range of photography I undertake. With 2018 just around the corner,  I'm always searching for interesting collaborations and new challenges, so if you have something in mind, give me a call and we can hook up over coffee and discuss.

Industry photographer on location at manufacturing plant Liverpool

Some repeat business from a Merseyside based manufacturer. I had worked with them before on a large construction project, documenting installation of one of their products. The images were used extensively in brochures and in the trade press. So I was excited when they called to commission me to take images inside their factory and put some life into their processes. It was quite challenging, with loads of different light sources and obviously I couldn't go everywhere in the plant, due to health and safety. But really interesting and created some good images to include within case-studies.

As usual, lots of business type events. Capacity: The Public Services Lab commissioned me to cover their launch and has subsquently booked me for 6 other jobs in 2017 - which has been great. They work with and support loads of other community and social based groups in Merseyside and it was great visiting and working with some of their partners.

Lifestyle therapist photography - massage in Liverpool

I worked with a start-up therapy business - producing their website, as well as the photography for the site.

Post production Photoshop work on retail store front

Possibly the most technically challenging commission came from a Bradford based digital screen provider. They install large LED displays to many high street retailers and wanted multi-location coverage of night scenes. So quite a bit of post-production here, getting everything spot on for their advertising needs.

"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."
