    A bit about the space

    The studio is approx 250 sqm of clearspan warehouse with multiple shooting areas including a huge floor to ceiling tri curve cyclorama fitted. There is a secure storage area for gear as well as extra storage space behind the Cyc.

    Other features include a kitchen area with large wooden bench and mods cons ie dishwasher, coffee machine, toaster, microwave, fridge, kettle etc etc you get the idea.

    The studio stays amazingly cool in summer and in winter there is a ducted heating, also the access is super convenient being ground floor with a roller door as well as 2 entry doors.

    We have also fitted sensors lights and camera’s and the studio is also alarmed so security is pretty good.

    In terms of sound ie for video shoots it is not in technical terms “sound proof” but is very quiet without heaps of road noise so with the right equipment recording video is a viable option should you need to.

    A bit about us

    You would be sharing with established photographers Ben Vella and Julian Dolman. We are pretty easy going but also very studio proud so like to keep things clean and organised, we each operate our businesses separately and share all expenses and the setup works very well.

    A bit about you

    Your an emerging, semi established or fully established photographer, are easygoing and respectful of the creative environment and you want somewhere to work and grow your business in a professional studio setup.
