About

We believe that high-end fashion photography shouldn’t be exclusive to high-end fashion models.

 Founded in 2007 by renowned advertising photographer North Sullivan, TPS blurs the line between editorial fashion photography and personal portraiture. Located in two retro warehouses in Sydney and Melbourne, our studio’s offer people the chance to step out of their comfort zones and spend a day playing adult dress-ups with the professionals.

Ultimately our mission is to help people to see beauty in themselves while creating wonderful works of art that will be passed down through generations.
