But don't take my word for it ....

"David is a new media professional that I have worked with for 10 plus years. As a photographer I commissioned him for some bespoke images for an academic prospectus. Excellent results, delivered promptly and worked well with the copy. Also David has helped me with my personal portfolio site over the years. He provided some great advice on technical aspects, such as content management systems and SEO. Easy to work with and I give him my full recommendation" Barry Hurd, CEO BHurd Design

"David took some professional business photos in Sefton Park and I love the photos! I found him to be very warm and personable, which helped me feel comfortable and confident during the shoot. He provided good direction to help get some fantastic shots. And also turned around the proofs and edited the images very quickly. Subsequently I commissioned him to take some product photography, which is equally of a high standard. I can't recommend him highly enough and it was so great working with him. I look forward to working with him again on future projects." Jill, Director, Bo Pura Ltd

"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 !" Martin - Filmmaker

"If you are looking for a creative and reliable event photographer, David is your guy. I commissioned him to travel to London to cover a business event where we were exhibiting and to also capture some staff portraits of the exec management team. His fees were competitive and his attitude totally positive & fun. David is an excellent photographic supplier. I highly recommend his services." Paul - Marketing Manager - KTSL

"Thank you for sending these images over, they look good and I really appreciate such quick turnaround. We will definitely use your services again." Indre - GNet 3D

"Thanks for last night David, I am really pleased with the images" Claire at M&C Saatchi

"Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank-you so much for the brilliant job you did for us in Bootle barracks the other week – we hit the Echo and also the Plymouth Daily (where we have an interest in veterans services) so we were dead chuffed." Justin at Shelter

"From the initial consultation, to the final delivered website, DJC Design has been the upmost in professionalism. Any query, has been answered swiftly and concisely, and climbworksafety ltd are extremely satisfied with the end product - which can be viewed over a number of platforms. We look forward to continuing our relationship with DJC Design in the future, and would wholeheartedly recommend them." Paul - Climb Work Safety Ltd

"I have been with DJC Design since 2010 when David designed and developed a website for my company - since then he has done a great job, taking care of the hosting service and giving me support when I needed it, at a great price." Chris CEO at Dancer Design

"This was our first time working with DJC Design and I must say we were impressed. As a charity we are always looking for the best value for money and David was certainly able to deliver in that area. His level of professionalism and eagerness to help us was second to none and our project was signed off in a very timely fashion. We would definitely recommend David to our colleagues and we will be sure to use him again." Gareth – Dublin/Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team

"Had a very satisfying photo shoot with David, punctual, proffessional and put me at ease straight away, I couldn't have asked for more and the results speak for themselves, excellent pictures! Will be calling again, thank you." Peter Washington, actor.

"DJC Design did an amazing job building our website. From start to finish incredibly professional and patient. Exceptional high standards in design and client relations make this a company I would happily recommend to others." Neil Spence, Business Owner at Neil Spence Photography

"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

"David designed the website for a holiday villa rental in Jamaica.

“Thanks so much for sending the photographs through – they’re great. And thanks again for your help on Sunday – it’s great to have the atmosphere of the day captured in the photos.” Gill, Event Manager, Shelter

"The strength of the web presence for a business like mine is essential in order to attract the right kind of clients, and David's work ensures that I've got precisely what I need." Ian Mountford, Company Director at Meet Your Future

"Consistency of service is always very high, prompt and effectual. Can happily recommend." Barry Hurd, Director at BHurd Design and Course Director at Colchester Institute

"I am running a small but fast growing real estate company based in Poland. David designed the website for us but also took photos of our project and designed our logo.

Pawel Ochmanski, Company Director at Venture Polska, Gdansk Poland

"Thank you for sending through the images – I have had a quick look through them & they look great. And thanks for all your hard and professional work throughout the event, it was much appreciated." Iona, Events Co-ordinator, Environment Media Group

"Thank you for setting up our School web site so speedily and effectively. Over the years we have tried without success to design a functional and user friendly web site that could be easily maintained and updated by non-specialists. Over a very short period of time you have managed to achieve this and more. I have been very impressed by your professionalism and dedication and I would be more than happy to recommend you to other companies" Margaret Edwards, Director of School at Liverpool John Moores University

"In short, we would recommend DJC Design to similar campaigning organisations. We thought we would have great difficulty in finding a design company who understood where we were coming from, and who would deal with us in a professional manner, so we were really lucky to find DJC Design" Dance Hall Fans Against Homophobia steering group

"I would be happy to recommend your services to any other company who requires a professional IT consultant and we will certainly be using you on our next project." Bob Gilmore, Technical Director at Quadsite

"The photos were great – they were exactly what we were after in terms of capturing the networking, the high profile speakers, the Awards winners and also the fun of the Awards dinner.  It was great to have such an involved photographer at the event capturing as much as possible and we would be very happy to use you again." Becky, Events Co-ordinator, Environment Media Group

"David had to gain the support and co-operation of the IT departments within the eight semi-independent Colleges that make up the University of London. David managed this successfully despite the vast differences in the procedures, priorities and technical resources of the various departments - differences which had led to the failure of other University-wide projects before David arrived." David Winter, IT Specialist at University of London

"Thanks David – the photographs look brilliant" Amy, Marketing Manager at Freshstart Property

"You managed to interpret the brief without using techy language. We have been battling with this problem for sometime and unable to find an internal solution, so it was really important to have the project implemented within a short timescale. I appreciate how much effort you put in to achieve this deadline and provide a cost effective solution. Based on the work you have done for Birkbeck, I would be happy to recommend DJC Design to other companies." Josie Charlton, Director of External Relations at Birkeck College - University of London

A few images from a little commission at Tuebrook ABC (amateur boxing club) - 1a Marlborough Rd, Liverpool L13 8A a couple of years back. The project documented how the sport of boxing is helping excluded from school young people. It encourages them to channel and focus their excess energy and improve their life skills.

Many had a diagnosis of ADHD and their inability to concentrate meant they fell behind academically from a young age, causing bad behaviour to spiral. According to statistics from the UK ADHD Partnership, children with ADHD have more than 100 times greater risk of being permanently excluded from school than other children.

When I was there kids were punching the bags or sparring as music played away in the background. And the smell of sweat and chalk permeated the air.

Of course I am not going to show any faces or include names, just a few little quotes. A great little project on reflection and it certainly seemed to be helping kids change their lives.

“Many of the young people we see have anxiety and confidence issues and struggle to work with others. Initially when kids start there can be arguments and disruption. But after a while we see confidence growing and mini goals achieved. Enabling them to feel good about themselves is very important.”

Global Day of Action for Climate Justice in Liverpool, Saturday 6th November 2021.

The event was been organised by a coalition of environmental groups from across the Liverpool City Region. The march started at South Liverpool’s Sefton Park, followed by a march to the city centre, before culminating in a rally in Derby Square. The demonstration is part of a Global Day of Action for Climate Justice bringing together a wide variety of different movements ‘to build power for system change.’ It was being held as talks continue at the ongoing COP26 meeting of world leaders to discuss action on climate change, which began in Glasgow.
