Photography embraces almost all genres, notably portrait art, landscapes, and still lifes, and captures everyday scenes with immediacy and directness. During a couple of seasons of Experimental Film Virginia, I had the pleasure of working with a photographer that captures all of that–Marcus Holman. Using line, form, light, and depth, Marcus creates a unique vision that is passionate and personal, but also embodies so much of what we love about living in the 757. He is Coastal Virginia’s photographer of record.

Below is a post from Mr. Hollman’s Facebook page, which we think truly sums up his passion for the work:
With the rise of digital photography and the abundance of smartphones, it’s easy to forget the value of quality craftsmanship and attention to detail. As a professional photographer, I take pride in creating beautiful and meaningful work that goes beyond just capturing an image.
For me, photography is not just about taking a picture, but it’s also about telling a story, capturing emotions, and creating lasting memories. It’s about the little details that make a big difference, like the way the light falls on a subject’s face, the perfect angle to capture a unique perspective, or the subtle adjustments in post-processing to enhance the overall image.
To me, attention to detail is everything. It’s what sets my work apart from the rest and gives meaning to the product and process. Just like a chef who carefully selects and prepares each ingredient to create a delicious meal or a sculptor who meticulously shapes every curve and line to create a work of art, I believe that the value of my work lies in the attention I give to every detail.
I want to invite you to experience the difference that attention to detail can make in your photography. Whether you’re looking for a professional headshot, family portraits, or event photography, I can guarantee that my work will exceed your expectations.

I was fortunate to meet Marcus over 15 years ago and he came to the shore for my son’s wedding at Smith Beach and the wedding album was fabulous. His creativity and details showed on the photos .
He and his work are a treasure.
