Photography studio hire lighting & equipment options

Lights and Modifiers

We use Elinchrom studio flash heads and modifiers and have a range of stands and softboxes to suit, but please enquire if you need something specific.

Cameras and Lenses

We are Canon shooters, so our cameras and lenses are all Canon, but we’re not brandist, so your Nikon or Sony is very welcome in our studio.


We’ve got reflectors, tripods, stands, filters, stools, tables and props, which should help to make a shoot awesome.

The “I work out of Epic Studios” Membership

You don’t need an office, but you do need a studio fairly regularly.  And a business address that isn’t home sounds great.  And when clients ask “where is your studio”…  now you have an answer for them.

Epic Studios Membership gives you access to all benefits of having your own studio but at a greatly reduced rate.

Membership is $695 +gst per quarter (3 months) and includes:

  • Two free full days studio hire ($700 value) or three free half days ($780 value)
  • 30% discount on further studio hires (Studio hire rates here)
  • A place to hold client meetings
  • An address to send your mail (we will collect and hold it for you)
  • Invitations to all our social events and industry events
  • Basically you’re welcomed into the Epic family but without an office.

If you would like a tour please call Mark on 0438 242 676.

Please be aware that to avoid the studio being impossible to book, we will only have 7 memberships at any one time.
