Johannes Frederik Hulk was born in Amsterdam in 1829. He received painting lessons from his older brother, Abraham, and from Kasparus Karsen. As a painter he mainly painted landscapes, seascapes, cities, villages and harbors. He gave painting lessons to his son, Johannes Frederik Hulk II, Bernard de Hoog, Bertha Muller and Elias Stark. He was a member of the artists' society Arti et Amicitiae in Amsterdam.

Hulk was not only a painter, but also a draftsman and owned a painting and drawing supplies store, De Rembrandt, in Amsterdam. After the advent of photography, he trained himself in this new discipline. Together with his partner, Pieter Vlaander, he ran a photographic studio known as Hulk & Vlaander until 1867.

Hulk lived and worked most of his life in Amsterdam. He held exhibitions of his photographic work at the Paleis voon Volksvlijt  in Amsterdam in 1865, and in the Prentenkabinet ("Print Room") at the University of Leiden.
