….making Hull look great!
The latest AimSpace project is to transform an office space with inspiring photography, for a newly acquired building in Hull. Our clients need the photographs in the show office to look fantastic and local to the city, so out with the camera and around Hull I went – with my trusty assistant “Geordie” Dave Higham.
Given a shortlist of things to shoot; The Deep, world trade centre, town hall, princes court etc. we set off on what was the hottest day of 2011 so far .
Here are some of the results, starting with Hull Train Station
This is the Hull World Trade Centre, by the Humber
Hull’s “The Deep” – a massive aquarium
Trinity Church – an amazing building in the centre of Hull, but amazingly tricky to photograph.. not a lot of room around it
So I had to take a “mcfade special” photograph, taking in the road markings….
Hull’s main precinct, the Princes Shopping Centre – long glass thingy
The one on the right is the Hull Maritime Museum – not sure what the thing on the left is, but it’s quite nice
Here’s the maritime museum again
Hull Town Hall, which is a massive building incorporating the courts as well – huge thing.
A walkway heading to the Deep – loved the shadows on this one
Some bridges over the little river – I think it may be called the River Hull, not sure though
And finally, this is next to some locks on the harbour – there is a marina with lots of yachts right next to the client’s offices, so got a few shots down here
So there you go – the impossible photography task, making Hull look half decent
Truth be told, there’s a lot of really cool stuff hidden around Hull – we had a 3 hour shoot to get this selection, it pays to take time and wander around the back streets as well as going for the obvious iconic buildings.
Where next? Barnsley……….. 😉
