A personal message

Hello, I'm Andrew Oakley, the founder of Imagehouse Studios and I'd like to welcome you to this website. I hope you enjoy exploring it.

Having been an inventor and product designer for many years,  I know only too well how much effort goes into making a great product. This effort deserves to be reflected in the quality of the images used for sales and marketing purposes. In this highly competitive world, it's essential to quickly stand out from the crowd.

  My interest in photography began in the 1980's and in the 90's, developed into a wedding, portrait and product photography business. These were the days of licking the backing paper of the exposed roll of film and hoping the exposure settings were as accurate as intended. How digital imaging has changed things!

My career eventually took me on an alternative path and into the development of high technology display and human-computer interaction technologies. However, in 2017 I took the decision to launch Imagehouse Studios and follow a life-long ambition to open a commercial photography studio, combining not just my passion for photography, but also my knowledge and experience of cutting edge display and interactive technologies. This enables me to offer my customers something unique by helping them to leverage new methods of media delivery, for example, our exciting and highly engaging animated interactive virtual tours. Please get in touch if you think Imagehouse can be of service. I guarantee that you won't find a more energetic and technology aware studio,  determined to make your product or service look as good as it deserves to. 

Why choose us?

We’re always gushing with ideas…quite literally at times, as high speed splash photography is a studio favourite! 

You might have a very clear idea of what you want and wish to direct the shoot yourself. If that’s the case, we’ll be very happy to have you in the studio in the Director’s Chair whilst we photograph your product. Often however, customers expect us to lead the way and that’s good too. 

Creativity is one thing, but without technical excellence, all can be lost. We pride ourselves on the quality of our delivered images. We endeavour to ensure they are as pixel perfect as they can be.

We are constantly looking at how new and emerging technologies can add to the effectiveness of image capture and content delivery. Our latest Virtual Reality innovation involves seamlessly blending small areas of video within high resolution static 360° panoramas to create animated interactive virtual tours. This has the advantage of maintaining a very high resolution static image but with the benefit of interactive video and at a small fraction of the file size that would be required for an entire sphere of non-interactive video. This translates into a better, faster and more engaging user experience.

We are proud to be a certified Photigy professional product photographer, demonstrating our skills and providing you with assurance that you are commissioning a photographer of proven ability. You can read more about what that means by clicking here. 

We maintain tight control of our overheads so that we can be as affordable as possible. Our mission is to provide you with fabulous images at highly competitive rates.  We are keen to provide  support to very small businesses and start-ups with extra special deals. Please contact us to find out more.

Our quotations are generally inclusive of all image retouching and finishing and will specify this. If you require  extensive or specialised manipulation of the images, then we’re happy to do this for a very reasonable post-production hourly rate.

We offer a 100% no quibble guarantee – If you’re not completely happy with the work we do for you and we are unable to correct a problem, we won’t charge you. Please read our terms and conditions for further details.

We understand that sometimes unforeseen events mean deadlines fall at inconvenient times and  at short notice. That’s why we don’t just operate from 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday. We’ll do our very best to accommodate your needs so that you meet your deadline.

We endeavour to respond promptly to requests for a quotation and to supply images quickly after the completion of a shoot. We’re happy to visit you and you are welcome to visit our studio for an informal chat so that we can better understand  your business and your imaging requirements.
