Reframing The Future

Holdinghands Studio uplifts under-resourced communities through photography, by providing free workshops and camera rental, and subsidising competition entry fees. As a social enterprise, we hope to inspire people to pursue a career or hobby in photography, so they can enjoy a richer, better life. Additionally, we provide a platform for aspiring and award-winning photographers to reach more people with their work and make a difference.

We’re a group of photographers with a genuine desire to give back to society. We believe in photography as a force for positive change. Photography has the power to make people think and see the world through a new lens. It brings together people with different artistic tastes but the same life goals. It provides a creative outlet that empowers people to tell their stories and transform their lives.  

With Holdinghands Studio, we’re changing the futures of people in need and photographers too. To help us achieve our goals, we sell beautiful, collectible Asian artworks by our talented supporters. We distribute 20% of the proceeds to meaningful causes, so your purchase will change someone’s life. Our canvases are crafted to last for 75 years, giving you a lifetime of pleasure. Shop our collections and you’re sure to find a masterpiece that speaks to your soul and artistic preferences.
