About Powerhouse Studios
Twenty years ago we were a small group who wanted to create a company that produced great work, where our staff loved coming to work and our clients loved working with us. Today we are a much bigger team but our core values remain the same.
Our photographers are empowered to test new ideas, innovate and push their creative boundaries as far as possible. They support each other, share ideas, techniques and have fun. The work they produce is amazing and the positive ‘vibe’ makes work enjoyable.
