Iamu Studios

About Us

Welcome to the creative haven known as Iamu Studios, where imagination finds its canvas and innovation knows no bounds. Iamu Studios was founded by Robert E. Dudley Jr., (Better known as Iamu Bob) a filmmaker and photographer with a passion for nurturing the next generation of creativity and empowering artists.

Our Story

After years of capturing moments and telling stories through the lens, Bob envisioned a place where fellow artists could gather, collaborate, and transform their ideas into reality. In Sept. 2021 Bob established Iamu Studios in the heart of Charlotte, NC. and over the span of two enriching years, we served as a hub for photographers, filmmakers, and musicians to experiment, learn, and create.

A Reimagined Space

Though our physical doors were temporarily closed for the past year, it was all part of a grand transformation. We've been hard at work building a brand new location, meticulously designed to inspire and facilitate boundless creativity. Our new space boasts even more room for your artistic endeavors, complete with state-of-the-art equipment and an array of captivating set/background options that are sure to elevate your content.

Education and Collaboration

Beyond offering studio time and top-notch equipment, we are committed to nurturing the next generation of talent. We host workshops led by local professionals in their respective fields, designed to educate, elevate and inspire the youth. Through these collaborations, we aim to bridge the gap between experience and aspiration, fostering a community where knowledge is shared and creativity flourishes.
