Perfect photographic productions


COMPANY

Thorsten Gieske founded Studio Gieske on January 1, 1994. It all began with a workforce of two employees and two apprentices. Back then, the photo studio occupied a space of just 500 square meters. However, the customer roster of Studio Gieske included renowned mail order merchandisers from the very beginning. In 1996, as part of a business succession, Studio Gieske acquired the Posch-Russow Photo Studio, which had an excellent reputation. Hence, the number of employees increased to 20 and the size of the company premises doubled to about 1000 square meters. As the new millennium rolled around in 2000, the company was also able to acquire the photo studio of Meyle+Müller, which resulted in more growth in terms of both workforce and space. A new complex was opened in 2003 in the hills outside of Pforzheim, Germany (Wilferdinger Höhe neighborhood). It boasted 2000 square meters of studio space. In 2006, a second location was added, which also offered 2000 square meters of space. By now the company employed 42 staff members. Ultimately, in 2010, the enterprise had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to merge its two sites into one large space in Pforzheim. At this site, it now has 7000 square meters of production space at its 72 employees’ disposal.  Thorsten Gieske, the founder and Thomas Andraschko – another pioneer among the staff members and now a partner – still work directly with the accounts who have been on board since the inception of the company.
