POWER SPORT IMAGES is a global creative agency for commercial sports photography and video production with bases in Hong Kong, London and Spain. Our photographers, cameramen and video producers have covered sports and corporate sport related events all over the world.

OUR EXPERIENCE:

Most recently we have covered world-renowned sports properties in all major disciplines including golf, tennis, sailing, x-games, rugby and football. Specific examples include the Beijing Olympics, multiples F1 Grand Prix, Volvo Ocean Race, America's Cup, FIFA World Cup, UEFA Champions league finals, ATP Master series, WTA and Davis Cup tennis tournaments, Standard Chartered's Greatest Race on Earth, European Tour and Golf World Cups.

OUR WORK:

We specialise in the production of photography and video content for corporate sports sponsors, organising committees as well as the agencies and third-parties who support and activate sponsorships for these events.

We pride ourselves in working to the highest standards of the biggest players in the industry yet delivering a more personalised and dedicated service than the larger press agencies.

Our goal posts are set high and we continuously exceed client expectations in terms of brand vision, quality of production, creativity and on-time delivery.

OUR PEOPLE:

Our directors and co-founders have a wealth of experience in the realm of sports photography and corporate and sports video production. Each has run their own successful business but decided to combine their expertise to form PSI.

Our photographers, camera crews, editors and motion graphic designers have had pictures published and video broadcast in publications, on websites and TV stations around the world and our highly specialised team is made of hand picked experts in their field.

As a freelance editorial and commercial photographer, Raf's editorial images have been widely published in major newspapers (such as The Financial Times), his travel and lifestyle imagery has been seen in many in-flight and other magazines (including Air Canada, KLM & Singapore Airlines) and he has been commissioned to provide photography by a wide variety of corporate clients in a diverse number of industries spanning product design, professional services, hotel & spa operators and travel companies.

Having always been interested in the creative field she studied media technology and visual effects post-production and put her training to good use in her first position as a video editor documenting major activation events for an event management company.

Working in a small team meant that Emeline frequently had to help with various other tasks including client liaison, camera-work and also project management. With this background of multi-disciplinary abilities, 'The Power of Sport Images' was keen to add her to their Hong Kong production team.

Emeline enjoys the challenge of working in an environment where impossible deadlines and difficult creative briefs are the norm!
