At the end of last year I was co-ordinating an interesting commission providing infrastructure photography for the Highways Agency (a Government department) across the UK. It was for the publication of a report detailing massive Government spending plans on improving the UK road network. An urgent list was drawn up of congestion and accident spots and with just a week to complete, I called up a number of fellow photographers to assist me up and down the country. Furthest north was the A1 near the Scottish border, while colleagues travelled West to Somerset and down South as far as the Kent coast. Possibly not the most exciting photos. But the project involved a lot of planning and a daily shifting brief (the joys of working with a large Government department) so at the end of the day, the big budget made all the hard work totally worth it !
So if you have a large scale project and looking for a photographers team or agency, I can possibly help, using my own network of reliable and professional photographers. It means, you will have just one contact person for a multi-location commission and importantly a standard way for detailing briefs, alongside just one set of details for accessing the final, delivered images.
So give me a call - if I can't help, I'm sure I will know the right person for the job.

"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."
