Q: What is The Photo Studio Australia?

A: The Photo Studio is a fashion photography company based in Sydney and Melbourne specializing in modelling portfolios. We believe in the importance of representing people of all ages, backgrounds, sizes, and heights in the fashion industry.

Due to the sometimes unattainable beauty standards, we find that people are often too scared to jump in front of the camera because it might reveal their imperfections. This is where we come in and challenge that perception. Throughout The Photo Studio experience, our clients find power in vulnerability, learning to love every single angle.

The studio was founded in 2007 by renowned advertising photographer North Sullivan.
