The Cypress News Review is the brainchild of Creighton Holub, whose news journalism career jumped into gear during high school in 1996.
“That fall I had joined my friends in doing the school yearbook,” he said. “I had no idea that it would become the springboard for a career in photography, photojournalism, video, and the news industry.”
The civilian photographer and journalist turned Army public affairs operator and combat veteran finished his time in the military and started Holub Photography. The communities served by Holub Photography desperately needed video services and he was the only person who could fulfill that role.
“I had gotten my toes wet with video while in the military,” the experienced cameraman explained. “Assisting such experienced broadcasters — which included a NYC TV crewman, former and future military broadcast station leaders — gave me the tools to work through many of the problems any still photographer would need to get video work up and running. It wasn’t as smooth as it is now — that’s for sure!”
As a winner of local, regional, state and national awards in news, photography and journalism, he has covered the region along Interstate 10 west of Houston all the way out to Colorado County.
