Roo is excited by fashion and food photography. He believes working with an artistic team inspires him to push his creative boundaries even further.

On weekends Roo loves putting the world to rights over a pint of real ale.
Kev is a Powerhouse all-rounder who thinks big and has regular flashes of brilliance.

Hannah works closely with the production and photography teams, managing the workspace and ensuring that every room set and piece of kit is available when needed.

Hannah is happiest when having a laugh with her friends and loves the summer music festival scene.
Justine is the one who everyone turns to when they need something sourcing, whether it’s an unusual prop, a particular product, or even just supplies for her amazing lunch spreads. Describing Powerhouse as her second home, she often finds herself juggling between multiple shopping trips and working her way through endless boxes of samples that need to be meticulously checked for the next shoot. At home she loves baking and often brings goodies in for the rest of the team.
Silas enjoys the mix of photography work at Powerhouse and finds bringing products to life extremely satisfying, whether working on room sets or shooting delicious food in the kitchens. He is happy to follow any style a client prefers but particularly loves creating the look of natural light in the studio. Silas spends a lot of his free weekends travelling around the country with his mountain bike, when the weather allows. He also finds time to eat out with friends as much as he can.
Tom starts early, making sure the photographers have the equipment they need for that day. He’s pretty handy at fixing anything that isn’t in full working order, or at least knowing where to take it. He will often be pulled in multiple directions, happy to lend a hand where needed, and finds the problem-solving aspect of his work particularly satisfying. Keen to learn and build his own portfolio after hours, he’s often the last to leave on an evening but enjoys being outdoors on weekends.
Charlotte’s role includes all the tasks that come with managing projects for multiple clients. She particularly enjoys location shoots and video work too, because of their unique challenges.

When not at the gym or Zumba class, Charlotte’s free time is spent studying for her regular Spanish lessons.
