BEHIND THE SCENES | SS24 | BAJA SUR

I pinch myself always on this incredible life on repeat and starting straight away here in 2024. A writer recently asked me if I could choose any place to return to again where would it be? My response. Home. Yes, home. As boring as that might sound, I travel the world as not a tourist, but as a traveler. I have more stamps in my double passport than most will have in a lifetime. I circle the globe fully what feels like at least once a year telling stories in the space of lifestyle for editorials and brands alike with a cinematic considered feeling of authenticity. Yes. So for me, of all the places in the world that I could go back to… I would choose home. To my little nook in my New York City life with my rock at my side making the most of incredible meals over a glass of reserved vino, at home! A dream!

JOURNAL | YES, DETROIT

JOURNAL | YES, DETROIT

Back on the road in what seems like a dream some days, I feel like the ever evolving world of shoots and production is still constantly shifting as we all find our new footing. With that as my assistants make fun, yes the new thermometer in the camera kit, takes up way to much space! Agree! As I head back to Detroit this time for an editorial I’m beyond excited about, masked up, hand sanitizer in tow up and away. Detroit always amazes me with the heart, the passion that everyone who is creating there has. How incredible the work is that’s being done there. How there is a movement there literally happening that no one is paying attention to that’s going to be amazing and change the landscape of fashion. I feel humbled always with the relationships created, the amazing people I get to collaborate with and meet, those amazing that are really truly making change for good not their pocketbooks. This last trip was no different, even in the midst of a pandemic. Get ready for it, headed out in print for 2021.

JOURNAL | HELLO CATSKILLS, AGAIN

This year nearly every other job has sent me north whether back in the Mid-West and or here in NYC. As life has come to a halt telling the stories of this new normal for lifestyle campaigns has become a challenge in itself. Yet an incredible moment to manifest some great true visual storytelling. Yet to be announced a new campaign to drop soon that was well, shot not that long ago. Here are a few outtakes from the adventure north as we capture this new normal. #chwhatbts #launchingsoon #newcampaign

JOURNAL | HEADED NORTH

It’s funny perhaps I always write about how special northern Michigan is to me, even in my last interview with Beside Magazine it was part of the conversation. So when tasked with a new editorial in the midst of this chaotic summer, I still said yes! Headed north for Travel and Leisure , here are a few outtakes, behind the scenes of the journey! From famed sand dunes, to fields of incredible vines and fresh lavender. To local farms and fresh food incredibly prepared by amazing chefs that have found their way back home.  #chwhatbts #travelandleisure #editorial2021

SERIES. STUDIES IN NATURE. FLORA. SUMMER 2020. – A refuge. Nature. Something that surrounds us that we forget. The light, the shape, the color. This summer reminded me as I became submerged. As my body refilled with light the light wrapped me as well. The sense of gratitude for this moment. For the opportunity given to share this time with my parents. It’s been a second. I thank. I appreciate. This amazing. That amazing. How difficult things may have seemed. I reflect to how fortunate I was to spend that difficult there. In that space. With such love.

PRESENTING TUCKER RÓUDES

PRESENTING TUCKER RÓUDES

New site for new personal work is LIVE. If your looking at this work you may be saying, is this ChristinaHolmes, I wanted to just confirm upfront, yes, its me! A new site is finally live and ready to go taking you to all things that I do that land in the world of conceptual works. Doing personal work is always part of my everyday. But as my love lifestyle work of food culture, adventure and menswear continues to evolve on a professional level my personal work is turning back to the world of minimalistic, muted, and simple. Using many artistic influences that inspire me while traveling abroad as the base for this inspiration. Along with love for design, art, culture and so forth.

This new series, which is the second installment of works with Hawkins is an ever growing relationship and collaboration between Hawkins New York x CHWHAT , now may I say x TUCKERROUDES. The ever talented duo of Nicholas Blaine & Paul Denoly are masters of design, conceptual thinking, and collaboration of creative talents in their own right. Im beyond excited to share this new personal work, and hope that you enjoy and get inspired along the way. Welcome to TuckerRòudes.
