Photo-Diarist James R. Holland has worked as a film editor and producer for The Christian Science Center in Boston and his documentaries have won several awards. As a young man he became interested in film making because he was the still photographer for a National Geographic Television Show about the Amazon River. His still photographs of Arthur Fiedler were animated by Walt Disney Studios to make a short PBS television tribute to the Boston Pops Conductor that was narrated by actor Charlton Heston. Two of his immediate film and television bosses included actor Alan Young and Kay Kyser of Big Band and Television fame. James R. Holland has also created many books including The Amazon, Mr. Pops, Tanglewood, W.O'K's Weird Wacky Wonderful World, Diamonds Are Waiting For You, Klan Rally, Fisheyes, Santa's Elves Revolt and Politics: Puns and Parody. He has recently published Adventure Photographer (A Bit of Boston Books/ 2009). In addition, James R. Holland reviews movies exclusively for Basil & Spice. James Holland continues his work today as a film consultant. His children follow in his footsteps as photographers and filmmakers. His website is: www.abitofbostonbooks.com/
