I was recently commissioned to spend a day with Liverpool John Moores University's events team. Their goal was to produce new images of facilities for marketing and publicity materials. I worked closely before the shoot with the team to suggest what they could do in preparation; dressing the rooms, ensuring they were clear of clutter and clean and finally that all the rooms were available and not being used. We managed to cover facilities across 4 sites and even found time for some tea and cake !
Of course, I've loads of experience taking photographs when these spaces are full of people - check the events portfolio for examples.
My highlight of the commission was visiting a studio in the Art and Design Academy and seeing a demonstration of a 3D laser cutting machine - impossible to photograph as it was working, but I provided a nice set of images of finished products for the team. Here the technician is holding a sheet of wood, that a series of animal shapes had been cut from, for a student project.educational, universities, interior, conference Author: David J Colbran
"As a new business, it was very important to me to get the right publicity photographs for my marketing materials. When I met David, he listened carefully to what I was trying to achieve with my brand, and then produced fabulous photographs that were exactly what I needed. He was extremely professional throughout but also nice and friendly. Myself and my clients found it easy to relax with him, which was essential to create the right vibe for the shoot. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
