About Hell Studios professional studio, photograpy room

CREATING

With over 73 years experience producing (yes, we added it up to look impressive), we’ve learnt a thing or two about pulling together crazy feats to make a shoot happen. We have in-house producers that will make your shoot a) a breeze, and b) the smoothest, most successful shoot you’ve ever been on. If you’re lucky, we’ll feed you pretty well too.

CAPTURING

This is where we really shine. Or… should we say shoot? We represent some of Australia’s foremost photographers (and an amazing DOP/Director too!), covering a bunch of different specialities. What they don’t know about ISO and f-stops isn’t worth knowing. Our state of the art studio space ensures we have all at hand for your shoot (especially what lies in our well stocked equipment room), plus a darn good cup of coffee.

CRAFTING

Once the shutter has shut and the shots are all shot, we don’t stop. Our in-house retouchers are some of the best in the biz. They can put a techno-invisible suit of armour on a footballer. Or put your entire shoot underwater. If that’s a bit too extreme, they can also colour correct and finesse your images to your desired feel.

THE TEAM

We’ve got a kick-ass team that know how to do their jobs really, really well. See below.

Carlos Alcaide

Also known as “The Fiery Spaniard” or “Jose from the Hip”, Carlos Alcaide is 100% all go. Always. We’re not sure he ever sleeps! With over 20 years experience in the business, Carlos has shot with world-famous celebrities from the likes of Priscilla Presley to local hero Billy Slater. He doesn’t like talking about it, but we have heard he’s won a bunch of awards.

Nicky Finlay

Nicky Finlay, a wealth of industry knowledge and a little attitude, this lady is our ‘go-to’ woman for anything and everything. Originally from Adelaide, and having resided in London and Hong Kong, she’s worked at several multinationals including Clemenger, Publicis Mojo, Leo Burnett, McCann, and Sapient Nitro, before she ended up in our little corner of the world twenty years later. She knows everyone. It’s a little dangerous.

Ryan Gill

Born in the bubbling crater of the Rino Parahi volcano in picturesque Takapuna, NZ, Ryan Gill (AKA Gilly) traversed the globe (moved to London) and found himself calling Melbourne home some 10 years ago. With a background originally in design he has now turned his attention to the world of Fashion Photography! If it glimmers, shines and sparkles, Gilly is your man (and that’s just what he wears on set!).

Will Hodge

A very well mannered country boy hailing from Ballarat, who has recently graduated from the Design Art school LCI Melbourne. Will Hodge originally did an internship with us in 2017… and just never left! He is constantly enhancing his skills in programs such as Cinema 4D and Photoshop and has produced some extraordinary work in the high-tech realms of retouching and CGI. When in Hell you’ll find him glued to his computer screens or trying his hand at table tennis. Keep practising Will!

Marcus Cropp

Marcus Cropp is a freelance Cinematographer and Camera Operator working primarily from Brunswick, Melbourne, though he also can work as a local in Hobart. A large amount of his work is in advertising & music videos though he does the odd documentary, and recently completed shooting feature documentary "Green Light"
