We recently had the pleasure to photograph the legend that is Sir David Attenborough. Sir David was a guest speaker at the 50th Birthday party of The Open University at Gibson Hall in London’s financial district.
We are often asked to provide event photography for corporate events. Our approach is to provide unobtrusive coverage, photography that is more observational than set up. This results in images that tell a story of the event. This also means as a photographer I don’t interfere with the event or its flow.
Other high profile guests at the event included Lord Puttnam, Martha Lane Fox and Prue Leith.
Attenborough’s work goes without saying, his work to save the environment and wildlife programmes have had a great impact on my photography, particularly my drone landscape photography where I’ve taken many cues from the photography on his Planet Earth and Our Planet series.
The Open University is the UK’s largest academic institution and world pioneer in distance learning.
Sir David can be seen in the first image here with Lord Puttnam who produced such legendary films as Chariots of Fire and The Killing Fields.
