Powerhouse Images - Simon Stokes: A Journey from Farm Boy to Photographer
Simon Stokes, the driving force behind Powerhouse Images, has a unique background that has shaped his artistic vision. Born and raised as a farm boy in the heartland of Western Australia's South West, Simon's journey took him from the vast sheep and grain property owned by his parents near Collie to a city boarding school in Perth.
Simon's roots run deep in the land, with his father's side having strong ties to the Murchison station country and his mother's family being long-time owners of the Mumbullup pub near Collie. These connections to the land and the people who inhabit it have instilled in Simon a profound appreciation for the natural beauty and rich heritage of Western Australia.
Before delving into the world of graphic design, Simon embarked on a remarkable adventure, exploring Western Australia extensively. He worked with Elders Pastoral, gaining firsthand experience of the vast and diverse landscapes the state has to offer. He also represented an animal health company based in Geraldton, further immersing himself in the region's rural communities.
It was during his studies in graphic design at Curtin University that Simon's passion for photography was ignited. The camera became an extension of his being, a constant companion capturing the moments that caught his discerning eye. Drawing from his graphic design background, Simon developed a unique perspective, blending his keen artistic sensibilities with a strong graphic component in his photographs.
After years of documenting the breathtaking landscapes of country Western Australia and beyond, Simon found himself compelled to share his captivating images with others. Powerhouse Images was born out of the desire to bring joy and inspiration to those who appreciate the beauty of the world through the lens of his camera.
Join Simon Stokes on a visual journey through the enchanting landscapes of Western Australia and beyond. Powerhouse Images invites you to experience the power and beauty of his photography, as he captures the essence of the places he has encountered and shares them with the world.
