Our Story

Fotograf HQ is a Melbourne-based state-of-the-art photographic studio that was conceived through a passion for photography and a desire for customers to feel good when seeing themselves on the other side of the camera. Formerly called ‘Studio Glamour’, for years we’ve built our reputation on quality finished products and an unforgettable in studio experience.

In 2020 we’ve evolved to launch additional photography services and opened a brand-new purpose-built studio at the gateway of Melbourne’s Mornington Peninsula. From candid family shots to corporate head shots and glamour images to product photography, we’re excited about the next chapter of our journey and invite you to join us.

We will take you on a journey to uncover your story and personality through photography.

We shine a light on the feeling you get when you are being photographed – if you feel good on the inside it reflects on the outside. Instead of staged ‘smile and click’ photos we showcase your personality and capture natural expressions through your passions.

We deliver remarkable experiences by building trust and connection from the moment you get in touch through to the photo shoot and the delivery of the finished timeless product.

Our aim is to transform your confidence in getting your photograph taken, so we see the best possible version of you with a commitment to surpassing your expectations.

We create art, a timeless piece of work to be displayed due to its beauty and emotional power – a moment you will treasure forever.

Our Space

We have worked with award-winning designers to create a stunning, state of-the-art purpose-built studio, like no other.

Located in South East Melbourne at the gateway to the Mornington Peninsula, we have three unique, fully serviced studios with natural light and high-end equipment for personalised photoshoots.

We also have an on-site gallery designed by our creative team to provide you with inspiration for your journey.

Our space really has to be seen to be believed!

The Experience

Pre-styling: We ensure you feel prepared and comfortable for the shoot advising on clothing and styling whilst also going through mood boards and the types of images you would like to capture.

Hair and make-up: We take the stress out of the preparation for the shoot with our on-site professionals who work with you to create a natural camera-ready look that is the best version of you.

The shoot: Our experienced team will put you at ease throughout the experience by building trust and connection. We give direction based on what you are comfortable with and capturing every possible shot from candid natural moments to more structured corporate or portfolio imagery.

Editing: You then leave the experience in our capable hands as our creative team devote care and attention to make sure every image we present tells your story in an authentic and natural way.

Selection: We deliver you a gallery of images to choose that completely surpasses your expectations

Production: Our handcrafted products are created to give you those timelines moments that you will treasure forever.
