Hollie and I documented the amazing 'Epicylce' performance at West Park recently for Hull 2017, in front of an awe struck audience of thousands. While I filmed the performance, Hollie took these stunning photos. All images copyright Hollie Rosa Warren 2017.
It was a pleasure to document the performance 'This Is The Future' for Hull 2017 recently, at Hull City Hall, which showcased some of the city's brightest talents. Here's a selection of some of my favourite images from the night. All images copyright Patrick Mateer 2017.
Last week I co-directed the new Neon Dolls video with Josh Moore. Here's a few behind the scenes stills, shot on the D5 and Sigma 50mm Art lens. I decided to push the boundaries of this amazing camera - so took it to ISO 12800 for the stills. Look out for the video in October (shot on Sony FS7, Sony A7s and Nikon D5).
Earlier in August I was booked to film a live session by (the hardest working man in Hull) Stew Baxter, from Warren Records. The session was for Katie Spencer - one of many up and coming local musicians who have already achieved so much, but seem to be on the cusp of something really special.
At the shoot, as we all talked the project through, Katie explained she would like to expand the live shoot into a short film, encompassing live performances and interviews about Katie and her work. I suggested adding in some additional footage to give the film a narrative and what we're now working on is a short documentary on Katie, her songs and what has influenced them.
It's been a pleasure to work with someone so talented yet completely free of ego or hubris (as an aside, this is something I find a really reassuring and recurring theme with the current generation of Hull musicians). Having completed initial filming, I'm just polishing up the first edit of the - as yet - untitled film. I'm looking forward to Warren Records and Katie releasing it later on in the year - but for now, here are a few stills I've taken of Katie during filming breaks.
All images shot with a Nikon D4s and Sigma Art 50mm 1.4 lens.
One very windy day...
I had the pleasure of working with one of Hull's most exciting up and coming bands recently. The weather was atrocious, but that didn't stop us from taking a tour through Hull's Fruit Market and down by the humber. I took a series of photos for the band - some posed, some natural - for use on their upcoming tour dates. Here's a selection of a few of my favourites.
Here are some shots from a recent promo shoot with the band 'Breeze', who I've been working with for around a year now on various photography and video projects.
All images shot with a Nikon D4s & Sigma 50mm 1.4 or Nikon D810 & Sigma 15mm 2.8
Recently, I filmed and directed the video for Jack Conman's debut single. Here are some behind the scenes images from both the first and second of the two day shoot.
All images shot on a Nikon D810 with either a Sigma Art 50mm 1.4 or Tamron 24-70mm 2.8
