Houzz Launches Photographer Network to Help Home Professionals to Showcase their Work

Houzz (, the leading platform for home remodeling and design, today launched a Photographer Network ( to provide home building, remodeling and design professionals on Houzz with access to top photographers at affordable prices, making it even easier to showcase their work to the more than 25 million monthly unique users that comprise the Houzz community.

Consisting of more than 500 professional photographers in the U.S. and Canada on Houzz, the Photographer Network is an exclusive benefit for professionals on Houzz and provides special photography packages to first-time clients. The program will soon expand to home professionals outside of North America.

“Houzz is a visual platform so the most successful professionals are those who upload high-quality photos of their projects,” said Liza Hausman, vice president of Industry Marketing for Houzz. “With this program, we’re making it easier for pros to find talented photographers at affordable prices who can help bring the quality of their work to life, and increase their exposure to as many homeowners looking to hire a professional as possible.”

"Houzz pointed out the importance of excellent photography to me. I had been looking at my profile compared to other pros and thinking, ‘My work doesn't look like this,’" said Shannon Ggem of Ggem Design Co. “After working with a professional photographer, I saw how my work really does look like the work of other pros! There isn’t another resource like the Houzz Photographer Network.”

Since it was founded as a side project in 2009 to help its founders with their home remodel, Houzz has grown organically to over 25 million monthly unique users around the world – 90 percent of whom are homeowners – and over 600,000 active home professionals from architects, designers, contractors and more who are using the platform to build their brands, collaborate on projects and connect with homeowners.
