Fantastic weekend shooting at the Positive Vibration festival here in Liverpool. Highlight for me wasn't an act but a sound rig installed in a club that already has quite a good system ! Hanger 34 hosted the Sinai Soundsystem, which has been rocking the reggae vibes out of Sheffield since 2013. And it ran both days with guest performers and some of their own DJs playing.
It really was one of the most incredible experiences hearing and feeling this system - when running at full pelt it created that full-on body vibration. But without the usual distortion. Reminded me of times spent at Notting Hill Carnival and more recently the better systems in clubs like Fabric, The End and Berghain. Massive respect to Huw and the crew.

"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."
