Capturing the action and atmosphere of events, large and small, through reportage and news style photography in Liverpool, Merseyside, the North West and beyond.
I absolutely love the spontaneity of events. Whether you are throwing a glittering gala, a corporate event, or arranging a business conference, I'll document the event and share the events story and spirit through photography. Also events seem to like me; I've worked with several management teams for their clients on repeat annual conferences and have worked 12 years in a row for the worlds biggest sports photography business at the London Marathon.
Also I have worked at Royal visits to Merseyside and Manchester and at the G7 Summit in Liverpool in December 2021.
In the past I have covered; business conventions, charity and fundraising events, trade shows, exhibitions, networking events, black tie events, galas, evening dinners, award ceremonies, conferences, annual general meetings, as well as live music, entertainment, cultural and sporting events. Clients have included; British Cardiovascular Society, Australian High Commission / Government, Unilever, EFF, British Gas, Highways Agency, British Medical Association, Panasonic, Merseyside Police, NHS, Liverpool John Moores University, Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee, Cobalt Housing, University of Liverpool, International Business Festival, Liverpool City Council.
Venues include ACC Liverpool, home to the BT Convention Centre and Echo Arena, Liverpool Exhibition Centre, St Georges Hall, Anglican Cathedral, Everton and Liverpool football clubs, and most of the main hotels and venues in the region. Further afield I've worked at the Manchester Central Convention Complex, NEC - The National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, The Business Design Centre in London and the Yarnfield Conference Centre in Staffordshire.
While I'm based in Liverpool, I cover Merseyside and the North West, but no problems working in London - even factoring in travel I can compete on price with London based event photographers.
Using my many years of experience as a pro photographer, I have made this list of 7 tips for hiring a conference photographer. From writing a brief, through to making sure the right people get the images promptly.
Finally, I have an extensive network of reliable and professional photographers up and down the country. Recently I managed a team of photographers for a UK wide project for the Highways Agency, which secured just one contact person for the end client and a consistent means of delivery of the final images.
I hold comprehensive public liability insurance, offer online galleries (both private and public) for print sales and if necessary, can arrange a second photographer or a team, to ensure complete coverage. Finally, for multi-day events I offer great discounts on my usual day rate. Give me a call or send me an email for more details and a quick chat about your event or conference.

Back on the blog with a quick update on recent business and commercial photography commissions. Working with a housing association, a bike charity, a medical society, a recruitment agency and a dental practice.
A really interesting commission working with Livv Housing documenting a fire and rescue exercise in high-rise residential apartments in Kirkby. These are the people who will literally save your life!
Nice commission at the ACC Liverpool - Conference Venue on the waterfront. It is a venue I know very well, having worked at dozens of business events, conferences and exhibitions since it opened. It really does compete to be the UK's number one multipurpose arena and convention centre.
"David is an amazing Liverpool based photographer. Not just in his professionalism and demeanour, but in his clear understanding of how to create the best images for clients. We worked together on a number of commercial projects and it was quality both in terms of content and prompt delivery of files every time. Absolutely no problem recommending him, he is a true pro at what he does !"
