Photographer with Royal visit experience in Liverpool, Merseyside, and working across the North West

Merseyside - experienced pro photographer

Sad times as I write this, September 2022 and during the period of National Mourning for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. But it got me thinking back to times when I briefly worked with The Royal Family as a photographer. Unfortunately I haven't been commissioned to take any formal portraits. Rather my experience is from Royal visits and the press and public relations interest that generates.

I am a professional, full time photographer, with nearly 20 years' experience. I have worked at dozens of high profile events, where knowledge of protocol and an ability to follow instructions is key. Happy to dress appropriately and fit in to an often busy programme of activities. At ease with the speed that these events and visits happens. I can offer a quick turnaround of images, supply them on location and provide web ready versions for your social media channels.

Many members of the Royal family support charities, appear at events, and occasionally travels the globe to strengthen diplomatic relationships. Often individuals will commit to longer associations via patronage.

Essentially, a “royal patronage” simply refers to a member of the royal family becoming an official patron of an organisation.

The Buckingham Palace website says: ”Royal patronages add status to an organisation, and visits and involvement from a Royal Patron can often bring much needed publicity.

“For this reason, members of the Royal Family tend to limit their patronages to a manageable number to ensure that they can give each organisation a significant amount of their time.

Members of the Royal Family receive hundreds of requests for support each year - so it is a fairly big deal to an organisation to receive one, and important when the Royal Patron attends an event or undertakes a visit in their professional capacity.

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.

"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."
