Our name and much of our creative philosophy comes from the famous painter ‘Gainsborough’, who used light to soften, shade & portray people to show their inner beauty.

At Gainsborough Studio we are very proud of the studio environment we have created, to inspire both ourselves and our clients to achieve that high level of difference, quality and individuality that our clients have come to appreciate & expect.

We don’t want to be the biggest; just the best – our measuring tool is not how many awards can be won, but how many times our clients say thank you!

We realise that in today’s competitive environment, you are only as good as your last client says you are. We are a small youthful business, being one of the very few photographic businesses with only full-time photographers; and 3 at that! With our graphic designer and the latest technology to make images and memories that embody the people, life, passion and fun that is our company mantra.

We are also renowned for our freshly made cappuccino’s and latte’s, so drop past for a coffee when you are in the area and see why our regular clients keep coming back for more!

our history

Our History

Gainsborough was started over 39 years ago with one simple vision in mind...to create amazing images for our clients that made them look and feel the best they could be .

A lot of changes have happened to the world in the years since... colour photography amongst them! We were in the city on Pirie Street for 9 years, before coming to our current home in Collinswood 28 years ago.
Being creative and visual people, we love changing the studio around regularly, different backgrounds, new props and fancy equipment to add to the arsenal of our years of photography knowledge.
For us though; this one never changes or ages; and that is how much we love working with and creating something beautiful and timeless for our followers.
