Bellingham man launches photography business at age 92

The Bellingham Business Journal

Longtime photographer Pete Holeman, 92, of Bellingham has launched Holeman Photography, specializing in casual and natural portraits.

Holeman’s interest in photography dates back to 1940, when he purchased a camera while serving in the Navy and visiting various ports around the world. His interest in photography continued as he completed a 10-year stint in the Navy and then owned and operated an ornamental iron business in Bellingham for 14 years. Holeman received numerous photography awards from the Borderline Camera Club and Northwest Washington Fair.

Holeman now is converting his hobby into a business. He offers to take portraits with a digital camera at the homes of customers, where they are most comfortable.

“By allowing a person to stay at their home, perhaps even in their favorite chair, and in everyday clothes, they become relaxed in front of a camera,” Holeman said. “This results in wonderful portraits that will be treasured by family and friends for many years.”

Holeman Photography offers 8-by-10 and 8-by-12 prints, either by themselves or with matting or glass frames. For more information or appointments, call (360) 733-8589.
