Peter Holden is a full-time freelance photographer in the Washington, DC, area.
His passion is photography.
" My camera has given me entry to some intense situations: Shooting an All-Star NBA game; up close to three U.S. presidents; finding myself caught between opposing sides at an abortion clinic. Whatever happens you have to think 'What's the picture here?' And get it! Mostly a picture doesn't just happen: You have to have the eye to see it."
He has twenty years experience shooting everything from hearings and press conferences to political rallies and life on the Chesapeake Bay.
His work has appeared in national newspapers, magazines, public policy Web sites, newsletters, and annual reports.
Peter Holden will shoot an assignment, do an edit, write effective cutlines, and upload images for publications or Web sites the same day.
He holds a degree in Journalism from the University of Maryland and is a member of the Maryland Professional Photographers Association.
