I’m David Pearson. This is my personal website.

About me

I work. During the day. In the public sector.

I manage website publishing – trying to make sure that everything we do is focused on meeting the needs of users of government information.

I have a long-standing interest in social media – in the ways that we connect with others – in the ways that we identify relevant influencers or experts – and in networks and networking.

But I try to avoid talking about these things – pretending to be an expert in things where I’m not!


I’m an experienced photographer, tending to specialise in the following:

  • events – I’ve covered a range of events from conferences to weddings and presentations
  • trains and planes – in both cases aiming to capture these as landscape features
  • sport – I’ve photographed most sports, from badminton and rugby through to cricket, volleyball and football, and darts or cribbage.

I’ve used a camera since my early teens – I’ve developed and printed my own black and white slides, prints and colour film – and I’ve watched (and used) cameras as they’ve evolved to help the picture-making process. I’ve used digital cameras pretty much exclusively since 2001 – through many iterations and improvements.


Some of the events I’ve covered:

I don’t claim any great expertise in video work – I’ve covered some events, plus trains and planes and stuff. A few things I’ve filmed end edited and am quite pleased include these:

Lewes Bonfire 2017

PS Waverley at Tower Bridge

I occasionally stick other odd videos I’ve made on my YouTube channel.

And some recent work for Etcetera: the Civil Service Choir:
