Founded by ex-press photographer Craig Holmes in 1999, the business is now one of the most respected architectural photography firms in the Midlands.


With a team of three working to meet the needs of agencies and developers in the Birmingham and surrounding regions, Craig Holmes Photography has grown significantly since 1999.

Craig Holmes undertakes all of the architectural photography, and has over 20 years of experience in the supply of imagery to property markets in Birmingham and the surrounding counties.

Clients operate in many diverse fields relating to architecture and property marketing and include commercial property agents, marketing agencies, architects, developers, PR agencies, magazines, building contractors, universities, galleries, restaurants and airlines.

In recent years we have had 9 books published, won two Newspaper Society Awards, produced a book for RIBA on architecture of Birmingham, been featured in the British Journal of Photography twice, as well as having images chosen for publication by the British Press Photographers Association.

Recent clients have included the majority of office and commercial property agencies in the Birmingham area, The Football Association, Arup, Associated Architects, RIBA, WMGC/Marketing Birmingham, Make, St. Modwen, The Co-operative, the BBC, The Financial Times, Birmingham City University, and many other independent marketing, design and PR agencies working across varied sectors that include construction, tourism, education and retail. Some of the more high profile projects have included The Cube, Snow Hill Birmingham, Longbridge, Salford Quays (BBC buildings) and Brindleyplace.

As well as commissioned photography, we also own the Images of Birmingham Photo Library, further supplying those in the fields of property with pre-existing stock images of the region.

Recently, we have attained the NSCS/GCHQ Cyber Essentials Certification, ensuring your data is safe, secure and private. This enables us to work with a variety of clients requiring higher standards of professional data security. Often important when building sales take place, or restructuring is involved.

We are based in the Midlands, near to Birmingham, but travel extensively, carry a CSCS card and full PPE safety equipment.
