    Rufus & Cooper’s custom-built photographic studio is located in Melbourne’s leafy inner-east suburb of Hawthorn, just a few minutes from the CBD. Versatile, multi-use and completely customisable, the fully equipped studio boasts up to four separate spaces to suit individual needs. 

    The beautifully designed studio was recently renovated with a unique fit-out built on years of studio photography experience, along with feedback from a host of clients and colleagues. With clean lines, high ceilings and controlled natural daylight, coupled with polished concrete floors and considered design accents, it’s a stylish blank canvas for all creative concepts. 

    Features include: on-site parking, secure access, beautiful bathrooms, fully-equipped kitchens, climate control heating and air-conditioning, disabled access, a full height loading bay and all the facilities and equipment you’d expect to find in a state-of-the-art photographic and event space. Rufus & Cooper is just minutes away from public transport and surrounded by wonderful cafes and eateries.
