Empowering People Through Photography

Are you a budding fashion photographer looking to break into the industry? Do you dream of gaining hands-on studio experience in a dynamic and fun-filled environment? Look no further than The Photo Studio Academy.

We are thrilled to invite you to join our team as a Photography Assistant, where you’ll embark on an exciting journey of theoretical and practical learning.

Why Become an Assistant?

Becoming an assistant enables you to learn the art and craft of professional photography, not from textbooks or class rooms, but from working side by side with some of the best photographers in the industry. 

There is no better way to become a photographer than by being an integral part of a professional creative team. A good assistant sees how their photographers think and act. How they manage light, direct subjects, handle the production and orchestrate the combination of factors needed to deliver consistently great photographs.  

About The Photo Studio

Founded in 2008 by renowned advertising photographer North Sullivan, The Photo Studio is Australia’s largest fashion portrait studio with locations across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. 

The studio provides an entire creative team under one roof, specialising in fashion photography for aspiring models, personal and commercial clients.

Having established one of the strongest presences in the photography industry, the studio began to actively embrace and promote diversity and inclusion, making it a mission to fight fashion stereotypes and empower everyday people through extraordinary photography.
