As a young man he joined his bush pilot friend Wilfrid ‘Wop’ May and took his photography up in the air, leaning out of the open cockpit of May’s Tiger Moth biplane, taking aerial shots.
He opened the Hollingworth studio at 118th Ave and 95th Street. Hubert married Violet Faulkner in 1936 and they moved into the back of the studio. Hubert and Violet had one child, Lucille.
With the lean years of WWII, Hubert closed the photo studio and worked as an aerial photographer for the US. Army engineers building the Alaska Highway. He then worked as a photographer for Edmonton’s McDermid Studios, the Edmonton Bulletin and Edmonton Journal.

Upon retirement he volunteered with the City of Edmonton Archives where he copied more than 12,000 photographic images.
