When I asked people from my home town Hull to contact me with their favourite film character, scene and local location in order to recreate their favourite movie moment I didn’t know what to expect.
Within hours my phone went crazy! Dozens of enthusiastic callers were talking to me with amazing ideas about the film moment they wanted to recreate.
As a result some weekends I was shooting twelve Hullywood Icons photographs a day each with a different set up, character and location.
So far over I’ve created over 130 Hullywood Icons images that celebrate the people and city of Hull.
Each photograph is a highly collaborative endeavour with participants bringing costume, props and setting up location permissions to create the shoot.
