"It’s not the camera that takes the picture. It’s the person"
– David Bailey, Portrait Photographer
Julian Dolman and his Melbourne portrait photography studio has worked with many Celebrities over the past 15 years across a broad spectrum of the entertainment and sporting industries.
Once all is said and done portrait photography is really about engaging with the subject in front of the lens. Of course the quality of the camera and the light is important, but it’s in making the subject feel at ease and capturing the personality of each person that forms the most important element in producing a powerful photograph.
Based in Melbourne the portrait photography team is helmed by Julian Dolman and ably supported by Josh Wayn. Together they share more than 20 years of collective experience in the industry and in short these lads just love the job and it shows in the way they are always striving to get better and create a unique experience for every client they shoot.
The approach to every shoot is always different and depends on the individual. Jules and Josh are well versed in both stylised studio shoots and an on the fly candid approach to environmental natural light portraiture.
Collaboration is always welcome and highly recommended. Input from a strong network of makeup artists and wardrobe stylists as required delivers each shoot to elite standards.
