Space overview

The studio is a large open warehouse with high ceilings and ample natural light around 10kms from the city center.

This is a medium size photographic studio located in an old saw tooth building. A 3.4m by 3.4m sliding door allows car access or the use of natural light. Rotatable and movable 3m panels which are white on oneside and black on the other allow the floor space to be divided in two to create smaller shooting spaces. There are wall mounted paper background rollers available in three different spaces. There is a full kitchen, change areas and a makeup table. A 40 sqm mezzanine serves as a break out space or a further shooting area. High ceilings 5m+ and a rolling crane allows heavy object to be raised into the air. A large number of stands including c-stands are available  for use. Lighting and modifiers are available for hire as well as backgrounds and other equipment.

Located in an industrial precinct 500m from LaTrobe University and serviced by bus. One of the best coffee roasters in Melbourne has a premises around the corner.
