I was recently commissioned by Splendid Communications of London to photograph prize winners for end client Endsleigh Insurance. The publicity event was called the 'Ultimate Student Party' and the winners were given all the things that make a party go off: a kicking soundsystem, DJs, bouncers and some vouchers for food and drink. Obviously the challenge was to get images that showed the party in a good light and didn't attract any negative press - so no overt drunkness and few if any alcohol drinks or branding on show. Tricky when it comes to students, but thanks go out to the party-goers who were helpful and cooperative and the professional Birmingham security team from Leon Security Services.
Images featured across social media networks and were received very well by the commissioning PR exectutive:
"David the photos are absolutely spot on, better then any of the other photographers I’ve hired for the other partys!" Tim at Splendid Communications.

"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."
