natural, candid, documentary photography

My clients come to me to capture their special events in both their personal and professional lives.

I specialise in photographing natural moments between people.

From corporate black tie functions to awards ceremonies, whatever the occasion, I’ll be working discreetly in the background, capturing every moment as your event unfolds.

I’ve been commissioned for events throughout the UK, including photographs for luxury birthday parties, photographs for movies sets, to corporate presentations and networking events… the list goes on.

My photographs capture the essence of your event in a discreet manner.

I’m more than happy to assist event organisers with planning to ensure the moments are captured and enjoyed long after the event has finished.

Due to the sensitive nature of my high profile clients’ events, not all my event photography can be displayed online. Below is a small selection of event photographs that shows my style…


David is an award winning photographer based in Clapham, London. He has trained under Gisela Torres, Vogue photographer and visiting lecturer at the National Portrait Gallery.

David developed his natural, documentary photographic style at weddings and events in stunning locations such as: Blenheim Palace, the Tower of London, the Crypt in Ely Place, Fennes, BAFTA 195 Piccadilly, Shotley Hall and Claridge’s.

David is a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP).


I’m a natural, documentary event photographer. I tell stories through the photographs I take.

My unobtrusive photography style enables me to capture the real, true moments of your event.

From the fleeting glances to the unexpected smiles, my timeless photographs will be given to you as a stunning collection of images recording your event.
