I am committed to capturing photographic images that touch and uplift the human heart. I am available for international assignments. I am located in Philadelphia Pa., Raymond W Holman Jr Photography was est. in 1989 when I began working for the Philadelphia Inquirer Newspaper as a freelance photographer. I have traveled as far as Havana Cuba to capture images. My captured images have appeared in nationally known museums such as the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Noyes Museum and the African American Museum in Philadelphia. To say I love photography, would be an understatement. I believe the ability to capture images is the one unique gift  given to me. The ability to share what I see in those split seconds of life.

Also please visit another of my websites The site is dedicated the “Family Caregivers of People with Alzheimer’s-dementia”. It is the direct result of my father Raymond W Holman Sr’s experience with Alzheimer’s disease which he developed in 1997 and died from in August 2001.  In June 2008 Raymond had a one person exhibit ay the African American Museum in Philadelphia. The exhibit included fifty-eight portraits of family caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s-dementia disease. My intention for the remainder of my career is to capture images of life that caress the hearts of all beings.



  1. Greetings Raymond!!!!

    I just reviewed your website and your compelling images!!! They leap off the page and into your heart and spirit!!

    I had the pleasure of meeting you at the Philadelphia African American Art festival last month. You remember, the day it continually rained cats and dogs!! I purchased your TOUCHED BY THE LIGHT photo. I wanted you meet my daughter another photographer that day, but the rain and her work schedule kept her away. Any way you were interested in visiting Montgomery, Alabama to continue your photography sojourn. After reviewing your site, I would highly recommend it. There is a lot of history here yet to be chronicled, here and down the road in Tuskeegee, Alabama.

  2. Mr Holman,

    Your work is very interesting.

    I am interested in using one of your amazing photos from the Alzheimers Project for a magazine I am working on in Vancouver BC Canada…. Its a healthcare publication… and the article is on Alzheimers Disease…

    I also need shots of caregivers…

    please contact me at

    Much appreciated,

  3. Keep doing your passion, I am finally doing mine!

  4. I have been capturing a lot of stuff wide open recently. I think I will close down to F4 for awhile. I had gotten into out of focus backgrounds because I was capturing images outside.
