I recently worked again with Comic Relief, in preparation for their annual fundraising evening. They support a local group called Positive Futures, a charitable youth organisation here in Liverpool who works with young people to give them access to support, guidance and opportunities. One particular aspect of their work is helping individuals on a one-to-one basis to overcome personal issues and challenges. And while they do this in many ways, I was there to document a feature at Tuebrook Amateur Boxing Club. I was asked to provide reportage style photographs at the club, as well as some portraits of key people.
Also the BBC's The One Show was there with Louise Minchin and a camera crew to interview a participant and learn a little more from the mentors and trainers for a segement in their early evening programme. Really interesting hearing in detail about the work and how boxing has helped young people during the interviews. They are really passionate about the young people they support and passionate about their local community.
Do you need a charity photographer to promote your charitable organisation or aid work?
I have bags of experience in this sector and know how to capture powerful images to communicate a compelling story. And have worked with Comic Relief, Shelter, Guide Dogs, Oxfam and the NSPCC.
A great photo can help tell your charity’s story. We live in a visual world and millions of photos are uploaded to social media every day. A single photograph can often convey much more than words really draw people in to understanding your message. So don't hesitate to give me a call.

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
