I received a fantastic testimonial for a company I did a shoot for a short while back. They are called Dark Encounters and are based in Portsmouth. My work with them was promotional images for their Ghost walks. I’ve always been interested in the supernatural, so this was a great project to get my teeth into! I went along on a couple of occasions to photograph the walks and capture the atmosphere.
“As a ghostly events company image is everything – as we are selling an idea and experience. We asked David to produce some imagery that would promote the Dark Encounters brand and really capture the imagination of people as to what we can offer. Despite having to follow one of LIVE ghost walks in very low light and rapidly moving action he really managed to capture the essence of what happens on our walks – the fear and the fun. All this and keeping a low profile as to not disrupt the tour. If a picture is a thousand words then we now have plenty.”
Jonathan Fost – Director, Dark Encounters
The walks are very different from anything I have ever seen! Not only does the guide tell the myths and legends of the area, but there are actors there to bring the scenes to life! In some stunning performances, you will come face to face with all manner of characters from Portsmouth’s past! Not only was I able to capture some stunning yet eerie images, but the whole experience is great fun!
For a spooky fun filled night out, give the Dark Encounters experience a go! Particularly fun for Halloween, just remember to take someone’s hand to hold! Visit Dark Encounters at http://www.darkencounters.co.uk/
As well as Ghost walks they do Investigations, so if you are a fan of Most Haunted, this is definitely for you!
