The company started as a business venture with Alan Carey as Antman’s partner. This partnership was fruitful for both sides so much so that Antman tried broadening his horizon by learning more about photography. Because he was able to learn the different genres available as well as the technologies being offered to photographers today, he was able to provide Image Woks with the best set of equipment allowing the company to reach a great number of prospective clients. This expansion did not escape the keen eye of a number of large companies.
