Editorial photography Liverpool John Moores University

Published on Tue Sep 19, 2017 by

As a photographer, it's always great to see my images published in an editorial context. So I was really pleased when a regular client; Liverpool John Moores University asked me to help out with some editorial photography for a forthcoming book publication about the history of the institution. As a large organisation, they already had a large photo library to work with, re-licencing old images, but they had quite a few photographic gaps in terms of buildings and details that needed shooting. I worked with the authors to finalise a shoot list and nailed down the exact locations of what they needed.

It was really interesting few days work - scouting the locations and then waiting for the right weather at the right time of day for the final photography.

The book - The Making of a Modern University - was recently published and I was lucky enough to receive a copy, so below are some tear sheets, highlighting my work.

Also my work regularly appears in their inhouse magazine called 'Think' here a couple of photographs from the most recent edition.

Of course if you are in the process of putting together a publication, like a book or a magazine and need some up to date photography commissioned, don't hesitate to give me a call. While I am based in central Liverpool, I work across Merseyside and the North-West.

Another Liverpool industrial photography commission under the belt and more hi-viz PPE added to the boot of the car. This time nice and local in the Old Swan, a couple of miles away from home. It was for the Lister Drive Greener Grid Park installation which is currently under construction.

"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."
