I worked again for Marathonfoto last weekend, covering the Helsinki city run. The event started and finished from the 1952 Olympic Stadium and although the weather conditions were poor for photography - heavy rain - I also undertook PR / public relations photography before the race for the organisers. Later I moved positions and was located on the finish-line for the athletes coming in.
Here are some photographs from around the city when it stopped raining for a few minutes. Interesting place to visit but like everywhere else in Scandinavia very expensive.

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
A lot of my recent commissions have been as a construction photographer in Merseyside and beyond. I've worked for both development companies and directly for manufacturers as their products are being installed on site.
"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."
