Like a lot of businesses the construction industry was hit hard with the pandemic. However the sector is showing signs of recovery. The latest Economic figures from the Government (a survey in August 2021) demonstrates that the industry is no longer contracting at the rate it was, and appears to be in recovery across the whole construction and engineering sector.
From a personal and anecdotal perspective, this definitely seems to be the case. A lot of my recent commissions have been as a Liverpool based construction photographer in Merseyside and on location across the North West. I've worked for both development companies and directly for manufacturers as their products are being installed on site.
So pulling on the boots and the PPE kit, here are a few examples of my photography out and about. First is for windows manufacturer Dakea, working at height to create a casestudy of a residental install, ready for their website and social media channels.
I offer high quality, high resolution images to construction companies - both large and small, including sub contractors, civil engineering consultants, architects and manufacturers. From initial site visits and groundworkings, to development progress documents, to final handover shoots with finished buildings and PR style group photographs with CEOs and VIPs.
Here are some more recent on location construction industry images taken in Merseyside. This time working for a manufacturer of protective boards, made from recycled hard plastic.
My photography work has been used for press releases, public relation releases, annual reports, brochures, promotional materials, trade magazines and of course on business websites.
I have also supplied images to visualisation companies who specialising in mixed media videos and CGI work.
Whether your project is constructing, renovating, or refurbishing, I’ve lots of on-site experience delivering images from a variety of construction projects. And factoring in my awareness of the dangers of shooting on development locations and the health and safety requirements I am your guy - give me a call on 07810 321 634 or email via firstname.lastname@example.org
Some screen grabs to show how clients have used my images on their own site and via their social media accounts.
Finally DJC Design has developed and built quite a few websites for development and construction companies. From initial project scoping and branding designs through to maintenance and ongoing content production. Again if it is something you need help with, please get in touch.

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 ...
A very busy and interesting weekend working for Marise Payne Australia's Minister for Foreign Affairs at various venues across the city. It was my first time working at a high profile diplomatic summit.
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 many times over the years, principally as a music conference and high profile event photographer.
