Step 1 – Your Pre-Shoot Consultation

Pre-shoot consultaions are a quick 20-30 min chat with your photographer prior to taking a photo. These are done at our studio in South Melbourne and give you the perfect opportunity an opportunity to see, touch and hold the products and get a real sense of what will look best in your space as well as really plan your photo session.

Appointments are available from Tuesday to Friday beginning at 9am with the last appointment at 4:30pm.

When booking this appointment our team will send you an inspire questionaire, this will give us a chance to understand better your style and what you love. It also give your photographer a place to start wjen chatting to you at your consult.

Some of the questions you will be asked…

What style are you? Abstract, Fine Art, Monochrome or Fresh. Most people are more than 1.

What do I have to bring? Bring your own items and accessories that tell us about you, and that you love.

What do I have to wear? Think about where in the home the wall art is going and what style you have chosen. The colours and design of your clothes with help define the style and location of the artwork.
