Hollywood Studios has been operating as a family run photography business since 1974. We have made it our focus to specialise in what we love doing best, photographing people.
There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the tears in a parent’s eyes or the smiles on a families face when they see all that is dearest to them in an individually designed framed portrait that we’ve created – for us it’s the greatest reward!

Photography is about creativity and like no two people are the same, no two photographers are the same. A lot of photographers may say they are the best in town but how do you know you are getting the best photographer, how do you gauge that? At Hollywood we have put our claims to the test against Australia’s and the World’s best photographers and aimed for the highest honors in international Photography.
