Why Alfieiam Photography?
It was before the digital era that I made a decision to stop photography, which was mainly due to the countless rolls of 35mm film I was shooting; at the time it cost a bit for standard 6′ x 4′ prints. Since then, my life has changed significantly; I’m into my 50th year, into a second marriage and we have a baby son called Alfie William – hence “Alfieiam Photography” – with another son well on his way.
In 2014, just before Alfie was born, I decided to dip my toe back into photography, buy a camera and start shooting Alfie’s every smile and every step. I also decided to shoot my local rugby league team, just to get more familiar with my new Nikon and a brief overview of everything new about digital photography and to reconnect in a different way with a sport I love, which has been my life for over 37 years.
I eventually posted some of these photographs on social media and words can’t describe what has happened. Over the last 18 months or so, I have received countless personal messages from family and friends encouraging me to do more. This very quickly, through a good friend and his contacts at Hull Kingston Rovers, gave me the opportunity to photograph HKR U19’s. I’ve photographed this team for the last three seasons, which I have to say is an absolute honour and a pleasure to do so. (Watch this space, because I’ve had further news which is very exciting for me and very encouraging for Alfieiam Photography).
I also photograph weddings, parties, christenings, countless rugby league games in Hull & East Riding and I have recently made further connections in football and boxing.
In 2015 and to date I’ve needed to go one step further and launch this website; calling my work “Alfieiam Photography” developing further a focus which so far has mainly been based in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire.
The aim and vision of this website is to bring you professional images of a range of events and amateur sport in Hull & East Riding and give the participants of sport, and their families, the opportunity to access and buy these images. Hopefully, in the near future, Alfieiam Photography will also provide sporting images for Hull University, schools and colleges.
Enjoy your time browsing and if you require a sporting event covering or want to discuss a particular future event that you would like capturing, please contact me; I look forward to hearing from you.
