Josef Holmes was one the best professional photographer I've hired. His skills and creative eye were surpassed only by his professionalism and friendliness. Closing the deal with him with quick, clear and well documented. On the day he arrived on time and spent a good amount of time surveying the place and taking multiple shots with multiple exposures from multiple angles. He was meticulous in his work. His post production work was great and was done in record time. The virtual tour he created is one one of the best I've seen online. Once I got my pictures and virtual tour on my property advert, I started getting viewing requests within a couple of days. I highly recommend Josef for those who look for a talented, friendly and professional photographer. More...

We feel incredibly lucky to have found Josef via an internet search. We could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding. He visited the venue beforehand to check out good spots for photo opportunities and on the day knew exactly where and how to get the best results from us and our guests whilst remaining unobtrusive, polite, friendly and a complete pleasure to have around. His skill and attention to detail is second to none and the resulting photos are amazing. They perfectly capture so many heartwarming and memorable moments together with the happiness and enjoyment that featured throughout the day. We would absolutely recommend Josef to anyone wanting quality photos for any occasion and would definitely choose him again ourselves for future events. More...

Josef is a great professional photographer, when I hired Josef I was slightly concerned as I was not able to meet him personally, but on our wedding day he arrived earlier and we finalised full venue.
He was very corporate and understanding. Through our wedding day he was just great and took lots of excellent photos.
The photos was send to us within 10 days as he promised . We were very pleased with the photographs. Brilliant and very professional job was done by Josef.
I would recommend Josef to anyone how is looking for a excellent professional photographer

Hi josef apologies for the delay in response .

Firstly I must commemorate
JOSEF HOLMES on his work he is an absolutely fantastic photographer cannot fault his work in any way shape or form .
Josef covered our wedding day on 24.8.19
But before the day itself numerous telephone conversations and organising how we wanted our day , this would be morn afternoon evening an night .
He captured everything in such a special way that we will treasure forever . Not only the main shots either but the candid ones too an the comedy esque ones too . So not only now do we have memories we have the perfect pictures that he caught of our day for us to look back on in time . Cannot thank you enough josef .
Josef goes the extra mile with everything he does he has flare an passion for his work and you can tell this when you meet him . This isnt just a job to him he loves what he does aswel an the pictures our proof of that .
Myself an my wife cannot thank you enough and we have already passed his details onto several of our freinds for any of there upcoming events .
Josef you are a gentleman and a scholar and if could give more than 5 stars I would highly reccomend .
All the best

We count ourselves very lucky to have found Josef as we were down to the wire with wedding planning, but the quality of service we received was outstanding! Josef was well organised and reliable, meeting us before the big day to scope out the best shots at the venue and understand what kind of styles and photos we wanted. For two camera shy people he made us feel very comfortable and all our guests commended him on his courtesy, enthusiasm and professionalism. When the final product arrived we were astounded by how beautifully everything was captured. Josef’s work is incredibly varied but the quality and talent is clear to see in every shot. We couldn’t be happier and would thoroughly recommend Josef to anyone. Thank you so much Josef for capturing the most memorable day of our lives for us on camera! More...

My wife and I were lucky enough to have Josef as our wedding photographer and we couldn't of been happier. He was very professional and so easy going it really put us at ease, especially as I'm not a fan of having my picture taken generally. The photos came out fantastic and we were so pleased! I fully recommend Josef to anyone, thank you again. More...

With this little statement, I would like to “tell the world” about my great experience with using professional photographer JOSEF HOLMES for my art exhibitions. His preparations before the photo shoots was really worth it. His eye for details gave my paintings full credit and I couldn’t have asked for more. All photos, shown in the best light and videos added with awesome music, impressed friends and customers. This young man is honestly sticking out, and I can highly recommend him as your professional PHOTOGRAPHER. Unni Kriens: Artist More...

Sorry for such a long delay.....we bought the Reem picture months ago and it's finally got pride of place in our living room. Having lived in Beach Towers and moved to Al Ain, this stunning piece of art will always remind me of happy times in Abu Dhabi. Fantastic work Josef and great service - we love it! More...

Hello everyone. My name is Alina. Recently I visited a gallery with Josef Holmes’s collection of paintings and photographs. The experience is wonderful. I was impressed by vivid and creative paintings full of life and harmony.
The theme of the work is very patriotic, it’s about Arabic country... which Josef Holmes is very proud of. You can feel his love to UAE in every piece of art there...
I’m looking forward to see his new collections and wish him endless inspiration and success.

The quality and grandeur of Josef's photos was already impressive but the ease of purchase made it a very easy experience. Josef worked directly with me to figure out kinks when trying to make the purchase and checked in all along the way to help me get what was a wonderful Christmas present for someone. Very polite, professional, and thoughtful on every level. Happy new year and thank you for your help, Josef! More...

I recently bought a photograph from Joseph. It was a great experience. The purchase was really easy and fast. I asked for a photograph and got it the next day.
The printing quality as well as the paper used were amazing.
I bought Al Ream phoyograph as a gift for a friend who's leaving abu dhabi for good, I would definitely recommend other people to buy his photographs for both, personal use and for gifting them to someone else

I happened to see these photos on a group and I’m so glad I did. The photography on Reem Island is fantastic and I was surprised how good quality the print was and the definition of colour - it was a perfect reminder of living in Abu Dhabi. Josef very kindly hand delivered it as we live quite close, and he was very helpful throughout choosing which print to purchase. Would definitely recommend. More...

Q&As

Capturing the essence and spirit of the moment whilst delivering it in the most beautiful way possible.

- what are the most important aspects of this occasion that you'd like me to capture?
- do you have an itinerary of the key times and locations for events?
- what is the main feeling you'd like me to represent in the photos?

I always find myself smiling when I'm editing images that captured a really special, emotion-filled moment - especially so if there's real joy in the people's faces!
To be there and experience it on the day can feel like a real honour.
I also love hearing positive feedback from clients when I hand the images over.

I've been lucky to have successfully worked freelance for pretty much all my life, with music (I'm also a singer and drummer in wedding bands!) being another major passion and career. I'd never have it any other way!

I think any potential client should review as many different photographers as they can to figure out who is best suited to them.
However -- if I am the lucky chosen one -- you'll have a smooth and fun experience on the day, and photos you can be really proud of.
