We caught up with Melbourne City club photographer and kit collector Aleksandar Jason to discuss his background in football and the 19/20 Inter Milan Third Kit.
Can you tell us a bit about yourself? What you do for a living?
Melbourne based Australian photographer, currently the club photographer at Melbourne City FC and honoured to have been a part of so many brands and campaigns over my career. Aside from Sports, I'm lucky enough to be able to work in a few different styles of photography - with Social Media being ever so present. I'm able to exhibit my work online as many alias’ @aleksandarjason (travel) @thatfootballphotog (sports) @aleksandarjasonweddings (couples)
Tell us a bit about your background in football and how you first got involved?
We all start off small; shot a few local games to grow my folio, joined a local magazine which gave me access to the Aleague and Socceroos - had my work noticed by Melbourne City FC and was offered a job - thankful to have had magazines such as Soccerbible feature me and or course clients such as Nike and Puma over the past few years give me the opportunity
Which Kit have you chosen for your MY KIT?
Inter Milan Third Kit - Nike 2019/20
Why this Kit?
Collecting kits, you look at ones that made a statement or stood out from the bunch in the past - to me, personally I think NIKE did the best job at perfecting a “simple” kit into one that may become a classic for Inter Milan. Whom already have a large scale of kits to compare to. Watching the current team use this kit, it simply stands out - bold, black and yellow.
What Players come to mind when you look at the kit?
Martinez, Lukaku, Brozovic, Eriksen. Id love to see Zanetti or Adriano wear this one during their prime!
Favourite Memory about the Kit?
Inter Milan v Napoli / 3-1
LUKAKU double!!! I was hoping to see a lot more of the kit this season but this was the game that stood out.
