Positive Vibration reggae festival in Liverpool - photos from 2021

Published on Wed Sep 15, 2021 by

Fantastic weekend shooting at the Positive Vibration festival here in Liverpool. Highlight for me wasn't an act but a sound rig installed in a club that already has quite a good system ! Hanger 34 hosted the Sinai Soundsystem, which has been rocking the reggae vibes out of Sheffield since 2013. And it ran both days with guest performers and some of their own DJs playing.

It really was one of the most incredible experiences hearing and feeling this system - when running at full pelt it created that full-on body vibration. But without the usual distortion. Reminded me of times spent at Notting Hill Carnival and more recently the better systems in clubs like Fabric, The End and Berghain. Massive respect to Huw and the crew.

A lot of my recent commissions have been as a construction photographer in Merseyside and beyond. I've worked for both development companies and directly for manufacturers as their products are being installed on site.

Positive Vibration is an award-winning reggae festival here in Liverpool and I was covering it for my agency ArenaPAL

"If you are looking for a creative and reliable event photographer, David is your guy. I commissioned him to travel to London to cover a business event where we were exhibiting and to also capture some staff portraits of the exec management team. His fees were competitive and his attitude totally positive & fun. David is an excellent photographic supplier. I highly recommend his services."
