Welcome to my website! Within this site you will find the photographic works I’m most proud of within the different genres of photography I find myself working in.

About me

My name is Ben Holmes, I’m a 21 year old Cumbria-based photographer and have been working actively with it for the last 5 years. My interest stems from family connections, with my grandmother photographing sports for newspapers at both local and national level. Through this I’ve had a strong link to photography for a large part of my life and learnt how to take photographs to the best of my ability.

My main body of practice is currently in Sports Photojournalism covering Carlisle United football games for the News & Star newspaper who publish my photographs online and in Newspaper form. I’ve also worked for Carlisle United Football cub with images featuring on their own website and social media as well as the Southern Daily Echo using my work.

Recently I graduated from the University of Cumbria, studying a photography degree at Bachelors level. Through my course I have developed skills within different genres of photography not just the photojournalism that I specialise in. With genres such as portraiture, landscape, wildlife, events and more being delved into.

Equipment wise, my main weapon of choice so to speak is the Canon 1D mkIV with a Canon 70-200mm f2.8 II Telephoto lens, Sigma 300mm f2.8 prime as well as other different lenses from 24mm and above I have also delved into drone photography and video with my Mavic Mini as well as 35mm film photography using a Canon EOS 500N using various film stocks.
