London Marathon photography 2013

Published on Tue Apr 30, 2013 by

I was down again in the capital for the UK's largest marathon and the 33rd staging of the race. It was my 8th London Marathon in a row, which is completely crazy ! But as usual I completely enjoyed my time working with the world's biggest event photography company, Marthonfoto. In total there was about 80 photographers at the event, with 40 of us dotted around the course. I was located again on the Embankment, close to the finish at the 40km marker. It was busy with many charity supporters and spectators lining the route and the noise was deafening at times.

Kenya's Priscah Jeptoo took advantage of a dramatic fall by Olympic champion Tiki Gelana to win the London Marathon, here she is below on her way to victory.

Presentation at Digifest 2021 Festival, Durban, South Africa

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 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."
