Newark photographer arrested on child pornography charges out of Virginia

Police say a Newark man who owns a local photography business was arrested in late-May on child porn charges, following a multi-state investigation.

Matthew Holland, 27, who operates Illumination Images Photography on West Union Street in Newark was taken into custody as an ‘out of state fugitive’, according to the Newark Police Department.


The 27-year-old faces felony charges in Leesburg, Virginia for production of child pornography and using communication systems to solicit illegal content.

Police are asking anyone with information regarding Holland, or his studio to call 315-331-3701.

“We are looking for persons who may have information concerning him and his studio in the Village of Newark. The only update I currently have is that he has waived extradition to Virginia,” Chief Mark Thoms said in an email.
