At the end of last year I was co-ordinating an interesting commission providing infrastructure photography for the Highways Agency (a Government department) across the UK. It was for the publication of a report detailing massive Government spending plans on improving the UK road network. An urgent list was drawn up of congestion and accident spots and with just a week to complete, I called up a number of fellow photographers to assist me up and down the country. Furthest north was the A1 near the Scottish border, while colleagues travelled West to Somerset and down South as far as the Kent coast. Possibly not the most exciting photos. But the project involved a lot of planning and a daily shifting brief (the joys of working with a large Government department) so at the end of the day, the big budget made all the hard work totally worth it !
So if you have a large scale project and looking for a photographers team or agency, I can possibly help, using my own network of reliable and professional photographers. It means, you will have just one contact person for a multi-location commission and importantly a standard way for detailing briefs, alongside just one set of details for accessing the final, delivered images.
So give me a call - if I can't help, I'm sure I will know the right person for the job.

This is a question that has been asked many times, why commission a professional photographer for projects .... here are 5 business reasons. Read more...
"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."
