HULL CITY ON FILM

Deliverable: Photography, Print Design

Role: Freelance Photographer

PROJECT INFO

BACKGROUND
Hull City On Film is a project I came up with when attending games at my favourite football club, Hull City. I focus on showcasing Hull City matchdays through 35mm film photography. Covering it in a different outlook by photographing the match action, fan culture and stadium stills.
INVOLVEMENT
For the Photography, I use a Minolta Riva Zoom 140 film camera. Having a keen interest in film photography for years, I wanted to start taking it up as a more regular hobby. One Saturday afternoon when heading to watch Hull City I took my film camera to a game and I've been taking photographs ever since. The ability to combine my two main interests in life was something that had real appeal to me.
 
I mainly showcase my photography through the Hull City On Film accounts on X (Twitter) and Instagram. Something I really enjoy about this project is the engagement with fans that I get through the art of photography.
 
Earlier in the year I spoke with Matt of Lower Block. A website that specialises in showcasing football culture through photography. Working with Matt, I wrote a piece on the main reasons I started the project. After this was published I received a rise in engagement on my accounts and had multiple messages to see if I sold any of my photographs as prints.
 
With that in mind, I created the Hull City On Film / Edition 1.0 photobook. A twenty-five page photobook that showcases my earlier photography from the 22/23 season. Focusing on matchdays, fans and the stadium.
 
I was also recently invited onto BBC Radio Humberside Sports Talk to speak with James Hoggarth about the photobook and the project itself.
CLIENT TESTIMONIAL
Hull City On Film is producing some of the most evocative and striking images of the club at the moment.
 
As a City fan, who first attended matches at Boothferry Park in 1991, I believe that football is about those moments with friends and memories made and shared through experiences good and bad. Hull City On Film is capturing exactly that – from people gathering in anticipation to sharing conversations in the concourse.
 
I particularly enjoy the use of film – the images almost feel like a moment caught in the seventies or the eighties. I hope more fans will get to appreciate what is being captured.
