Big Door Studios








From what began as a working mechanics garage in West Melbourne, the vision to create a unique photographic studio and design hub has come to life at Big Door Studios, now a light-filled multi-use creative space.

Resident photographer, James Cunningham, converted the space with Melbourne creatives in mind, with three operational photographic studios, offices for creatives, plus a loft meeting room and event space.

The studio has been refurbished to retain its original industrial aesthetic, with exposed brick, raw timber beams and polished concrete floors, making it the ideal blank canvas to hire for photographic shoots and events.

Big Door Studios offers clients a full service experience, from creative conception right through to campaign delivery, with in house team Sneaky Studio.



Our studios are true daylight studios available for hire in Melbourne, and are conveniently located in West Melbourne – only 2 minutes from the CBD. Studios can be hired out on an ad-hoc basis or for events. Versatility is the key at BDS – Ground floor drive in with all furniture on wheels and each studio can be reconfigured to take advantage of its unique daylight attributes – or block it out. In addition – each studio has a number of unique features. Our old converted warehouse with high ceilings and open spaces provides the perfect setting to be inspired.



Our Studios consist of 4 spaces Studio A, B, C and the kitchen. 

The whole space is rented out for:

$800+GST Full day 8hours.

$500+GST Half day 4hours. 

$120+GST Over time per hour.

$100+GST CYC repaint fee.
