David Cole Photography
Events - Professional events and lifestyle photographer with ten years experience of a variety of location assignments. Weddings, conferences, charity launches and fundraisers for private and public sector. Largest event was Prince Harry visit to Leeds with 600 delegates for meet and speech. I have also recently completed 70 lifestyle scenarios for blue chip pensions supplier.
I feel very comfortable working with large numbers of people. Discretion, respect and understanding the purpose of the event or assignment is important. A bit of charm, fun and a lot of professional experience is the core of my photography service.
Headshot - Studio or agreed location I shoot professional headshots and profile pictures and have experience with a wide variety of professionals. These include lawyers, financial advisers health workers at their places of work to garden designers, artists and actors on location.
Family portraits - Studio or agreed location I shoot informal shots of families. I can come to you at your home/garden if you prefer. Weekends are often best to get people together. A friendly, flexible professional I engage well with all ages and have the experience with many different families and their idiosyncracies.
