Positive Vibration reggae festival in Liverpool - photos from 2021

Published on Wed Sep 15, 2021 by

Fantastic weekend shooting at the Positive Vibration festival here in Liverpool. Highlight for me wasn't an act but a sound rig installed in a club that already has quite a good system ! Hanger 34 hosted the Sinai Soundsystem, which has been rocking the reggae vibes out of Sheffield since 2013. And it ran both days with guest performers and some of their own DJs playing.

It really was one of the most incredible experiences hearing and feeling this system - when running at full pelt it created that full-on body vibration. But without the usual distortion. Reminded me of times spent at Notting Hill Carnival and more recently the better systems in clubs like Fabric, The End and Berghain. Massive respect to Huw and the crew.

Liverpool Business portrait sessions what to expect

Getting a portrait booked in for a business profile can be a new and daunting experience for some people. Many of my clients have never had a professional photoshoot before and of course it is up to me to make them comfortable ...

Presentation at Digifest 2021 Festival, Durban, South Africa

A couple of weeks ago I was honoured to be asked to present and exhibit some of my artworks at the “Unmasked” Digifest and annual research conference 2021, based in Durban, South Africa

"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."
