Northside Studio as teamed up with the VWA to give its members access to quality and affordable Studio Photography Sessions starting on the 17th of August at The Stables of The Meat Market (crn Wreckyn and Courtney Sts, North Melbourne) from 8:30 am.
Northside Studio is offering up to 6-8 slots for this first run of the VWA Studio Photography Sessions so make sure you get in touch soon! 
This sessions can be booked by the hour giving our members flexibility and the ability to choose the best option to have their work professionally photographed.

We will be offering two types of studio photography sessions:

Catalogue Shoot - The simplest and most economic, where single pieces are shot on a white backdrop with even studio lighting.

Styled Shoot - Styled shoots are tailored to the makers needs. They can be on a white or custom backdrop with customised lighting. They can include a group of pieces and can have styled elements such as lamps, flowers, books, pottery, etc. This is a  highly personalised approach and takes longer to get things just right. Styled shoots will be discussed prior to the day to maximise efficiency on the day.

So which one is right for you?
Catalogue shoots have a simple and straight forward set up, this has the potential to shoot more pieces/images in a shorter amount of time.
Styled shoots allow for a more personalised touch but due to the added complexity they are more time consuming, require longer bookings and potentially produce a lower amount of images.

Bookings and payment can be made directly with Northside Studio via email at or feel free to give us a call on 0415 202 818 and discuss your shoot.
