Full-time photographer in Cumbria, Lancashire & across the North West

I started my photographic career in 1984 when I worked for a wedding & portrait studio in Manchester. After working there for 5 years I felt I had gained enough experience to start my own business.


I moved to Kendal in the summer of 1989 and set up Christopher Holmes Photography. I quickly found my feet and 800+ weddings later I’m still loving working in this beautiful part of the world!


Over the years I have worked at all of the popular churches and venues in The Lakes & North Lancashire.

My commercial and PR photography has enabled me to forge links with many local and national businesses. I am CRB checked and have public liability insurance.


I use the latest digital photographic equipment, lighting and post-production editing software.

My main camera is the Nikon D800 (36.3 mega pixels), back-up camera is a Fuji S5 Pro (uses Nikon lenses). Lenses - Nikon 14 - 24mm f2.8, Nikon 24 - 70mm f2.8 and Nikon 70 - 200mm f2.8 VR. Flashes - Nikon SB-910 & SB-800. Portable Studio Equipment - various Bowens flash units, background unit & backgrounds, laptop & dye-sub printer.


All enlargements are printed at a professional photographic laboratory on non-fading photographic paper.


I look forward to hearing from you!
