York City FC Vs Leeds United

Home game friendly against Leeds United FC

In July 2019, we attended Bootham Crescent to photograph York City FC in a home game friendly against Leeds United FC.

This was our first time shooting sport photography and we were able to learn a lot throughout the shoot.

Since then we’ve gone on to shoot a lot of basketball and branched out into other sports. You can follow our dedicated sports Instagram account @mcsportsphotography.

The brief

Consulting firm PW Does, who were working with York Ghost Merchants, approached us for press photography needed for York Ghost Week 2021.

They wanted to show ghosts that would be available to find around the city. These photos needed to be within the brand style of York Ghost Merchants.

Additionally, York Ghost Week included an exhibition at York Mansion House. They required photography and a short video to camera discussing the exhibition.

The work

To create the dark and moody look for York Ghost Merchant’s style, we had to get a little bit creative with lighting. Their model was only available during the day and they wanted authentic York street style in the shots.

Using an off-camera flash, we were able to bring the light down, whilst still keeping the models and products clear.

For the filming, we set up in a small space in York Mansion House using two cameras and a single light.
