The London marathon was my latest assignment for MarathonFoto; and the 5th time covering the event.
It was great to work again at this event, it really is one of the highlights of the year. I was positioned on the Embankment this year, at the 40km mark - so some very tired people went past me. But the rain held off for most of the day and the new sponsors Virgin did a great job helping the organisers
I love working at the London Marathon – the atmosphere is fantastic and the mix of professional athletes, fun runners and celebs is totally unique.
If you need help with the photography at a sports event please don't hesitate to get in touch. Even if your event is miles from Merseyside, I can help with a competitive quote.

"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."
