A couple of months ago I blogged about a challenging commission, stainless steel, highly reflective, product photography at an enginnering company here in Merseyside. The most common problem in stainless steel photography are reflections. Every object which surrounds it mirrors its image, including lighting rigs and the photographer. So I had to build an enormous tent around a large value, big enough to include a model in the shoot operating the kit.
The client and I were really pleased with the results - which of course included a lot of post-production work. Below are some tearsheets showing the finalised versions on publicity material. I've been asked back to do a similar project this week - this time it included a pressure unit 1.5m tall !

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.
"I have employed David many times over the years, principally as a music conference and high profile event photographer. He is always easy to work with, has a strong sense of what style is needed for each project and brings back results on deadline. He is skilled, experienced and understands visual language and lighting. Additionally, David often helps secure additional PR and media coverage."
