Having been in the business for over 25 years, David draws upon his vast experience working with art directors, designers and clients direct, to produce exceptional imagery. His ability to deliver and manage projects both large and small has kept him in continuous demand.


Besides all this he finds time to run, cook, bake cakes and cycle a little. He also supports a local charity, Hope Against Cancer and recently travelled to Italy and Switzerland to support a team of 73 fundraising cyclists.
