I supplied The Guardian newspaper with images for a special insert about Liverpool's year as European Capital of Culture. The first image is of lead singer Howie Payne performing with The Stands at a Love Music Hate Racism gig at Liverpool University. The second is of Eyuphuro from Mozambique playing live at Africa Oye festival 2006, Sefton Park, Liverpool.
Update May 2011
The Guardian re-used the Africa Oye image in an article about 10 essential arts and cultural events in Liverpool

"I have employed David many times over the years, principally as a music conference and high profile event photographer. He is always easy to work with, has a strong sense of what style is needed for each project and brings back results on deadline. He is skilled, experienced and understands visual language and lighting. Additionally, David often helps secure additional PR and media coverage."
