I was recently commissioned by Splendid Communications of London to photograph prize winners for end client Endsleigh Insurance. The publicity event was called the 'Ultimate Student Party' and the winners were given all the things that make a party go off: a kicking soundsystem, DJs, bouncers and some vouchers for food and drink. Obviously the challenge was to get images that showed the party in a good light and didn't attract any negative press - so no overt drunkness and few if any alcohol drinks or branding on show. Tricky when it comes to students, but thanks go out to the party-goers who were helpful and cooperative and the professional Birmingham security team from Leon Security Services.
Images featured across social media networks and were received very well by the commissioning PR exectutive:

"Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank-you so much for the brilliant job you did for us in Bootle barracks the other week – we hit the Echo and also the Plymouth Daily (where we have an interest in veterans services) so we were dead chuffed."
