Light Night is a late evening celebration of culture in Liverpool. Galleries, museums, and cultural institutions open up their doors to installations and performances, with street theatre and music, the event proved popular with visitors. I was shooting for news agencies, so it was nice being able to have a good wander around, with an open ended brief and with family in tow I covered the earlier and children friendly events, which were all great. Anyway a few highlights below. As always, please ask me first, if you would like to use any images and of course all are available for commercial licence.

If you've arrived here and are planning a cultural event in Liverpool, Merseyside or the North West, give me a call - while I can't cover everything, if it sounds interesting I'll try and come along.culture
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.
"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."
