Centre for Creative Photography

Type of space: Multi-use Space, Art Gallery, Photography Studio, Darkroom

    The Centre for Creative Photography (CCP) is a photographic school and professional resource centre at Marleston, about 4km southwest of the Adelaide CBD.

    Our facilities (studio, darkroom, gallery, digital suite, classrooms) are available to hire as a service to the professional photographic community. As we are primarily a school our pricing is affordable; depending on scheduling you may be working with students nearby, making for a dynamic and creative environment.

    We have five studios in an open-plan space available to hire for just about any photo shoot you might have in mind. Studios are fully equipped with a great range of gear, daylight studio, kitchen, street art mural and a professional but relaxed atmosphere.

    Film photographers will feel right at home in our darkrooms and film processing facilities.

    Our digital suite and classrooms can also be used for meetings, seminars and more.

    The Light Gallery, Adelaide's only fine art gallery dedicated to photography, hosts exhibitions year-round and can always consider proposals.

    Special Requirements

    Studio and darkroom hire at the CCP is intended for professional photographers or amateurs who have extensive studio/darkroom experience.

    Staff will be very happy to orient you to the space and answer questions but are not able to act as studio assistants. We highly recommend contacting a CCP graduate if you are looking for a photographer or assistant, and we can help with getting in touch. As well as being trained photographers, CCP graduates are very familiar with our studios, gear and capabilities.

    Weekend hire can usually be arranged but attracts a higher cost because of staffing. Saturday/Sunday hire is charged at double the large studio rates only.

    If possible please visit the studios before booking to get a sense of the space. We will happily give you a tour.

    Parking Notes

    We have a few parks in front and two at the rear (studio service entrance). Off-street parking also available.
