The of a Vancouver Island based photographer

About me

Hello! My name is Chas Holzworth. I am a professional portrait photographer located in Victoria, British Columbia. I am passionate about documenting the inherent beauty of the west coast and those living in this gorgeous location. It wasn’t until I moved here that I found my niche in capturing people in a natural, west coast environment. Few things bring me the kind of inner happiness than when my clients message me after a shoot and tell me how enjoyable they found the experience.  Because of this, the photos that we make together showcase the true nature of each individual.

As a graduate of The Western Academy of Photography, I can promise that you will have a good time and that you will enjoy your images, just as much as the experience. Feel free to contact me whichever way is best for you, and let’s talk about bringing your memories to life, in print.

  • Chas was a fantastique photographer for my 6-month old son! She brought my vision to light through colour, softness and play. Keeping baby happy is one thing, and she held strong through to the end! Thumbs and toes up for Ocean Wave!

  • Chas was absolutely fantastic and her professionalism really shows in her work. She took beautiful photos of my family and even got me (someone who usually hates having his picture taken) wanting to show off my photos. Thanks again Doll! You Rock!

  • A huge thank you to Chas for taking some of my first modelling "tests." I was new and nervous, thank you for making me feel super comfortable, coming up with ideas and being so imaginitive! It was a blast both times I shot with you. I absolutely love the photos! You are a very talented artist and I cannot wait to work with you again in the future, :)
