Susan Gravina

Hoarder of much film gear

Susan was given her first camera – a Pentax Espio Mini 75th year anniversary edition, when she was in her early teens. A gift from her father who was a photographer and career TV camera operator by trade. That camera is still in her bag and she carries it and uses it every day.
If you have ever hired from Brisbane Camera Hire you would have met Susan and she spends her days assisting hirers with gear and calling upon her past experience in shooting weddings, portraits, real estate, products, events and even the odd band shoot.

About the Studio

As the founder and Manging Director of Brisbane Camera Hire and with over 15 years of photography experience, Susan is proud to bring a beautiful and affordable photography studio to the photographers of Brisbane.


The studio features ample off street car parking which can be found at the rear of the studio and is accessed by its own separate entrance. Fully airconditioned and beautifully but simply styled, the studio is a joy to shoot in and presents beautifully to clients. The kitchenette features double stainless steel sinks, microwave and fridge. Complimentary fresh barista coffee beans and fully appointed coffee machine facilities are on-site free of charge.


The kitchenette also doubles as an oversized change room with full block off curtains on hospital track. A hair and make-up area is situated right next to a handy and ample bench space with plenty of room for you to organize all of your equipment.

The beautiful 15.64sqm cyclorama offers seamless shooting on a white background, but also on offer are 3 backdrop papers which drop from the ceiling. This offers black, egg nog and grey by way of 2.75m wide Savage Paper rolls.


The studio can be hired dry (space only) or we can kit it out with any and all additional extras including a lighting assistant if you require an extra set of hands.


Our studio is an intimate space, and so the maximum number of people we can accommodate is 5.  This will adhere to both COVID-safe and work-safe protocols and also provide you with the best shooting experience!

The studio is available Monday – Friday from 9am to 5pm, and weekends and after hours by appointment only (extra fees may apply to cover staffing.)
