Andy and Jemma

Introducing Andy Leader – The Holmfirth Photographer. Welcome to Made In Holmfirth. Photography inspired by the ever changing light and landscape of the Pennines around Holmfirth , Marsden and the Dark Peak .

Holme Valley Landscape

The brown Pennine hills and green walled folds of land here are dog earred and worn. They can take a while to get to know well. Beyond the sour Northern moors and mills lies another landscape of subtle light and mood that shows itself in glimpses.

Pennine Light

I’ve worked outside all my life as a woodsman, stone waller, farm labourer, ranger, contractor, footpath officer, guide, photographer and more. Still the turn of seasons, wildlife, light and landscape fills me with wonder. For 20 years I’ve been getting to know Holmfirth and the rolling Pennine back bone beside it and my connection with the area inspires my photography.

Wrigley’s Cabin

On the website you’ll find original prints for sale, photography workshops, guided walks, events and presentations and a blog from the moors.
