Inaugural Melbourne Comedy Festival Portrait Studio
Hey there funny people, I want to take your picture.
Actually, I want to take your picture next year too. Let’s make this a THING and celebrate your comedy festival shows every year.
Think Mark Seliger’s Oscar Portrait Studio for Vanity Fair, only, a whole lot more underground and with a much, much smaller budget.
Frock up, or simply rock up. Come in character, or as you are before or after your shows and have your photograph taken.

Entry via glass doors next to Subway - My wonderful photo assistants will let you in and show you the way.
Why not? It’s free. People love free stuff. Oh, and booze.
How Long Does It Take?
Allow for a minimum of half an hour. You’re welcome to hang out with us for longer and have a drink. Hey why not have a shot WITH your performer mates?
Can I Bring My Mates?
If your mates are fellow comedians performing at the festival - YES! The odd partner or friend is absolutely welcome. Portraits are exclusively for performers.
What Happens To The Images Afterwards?
As soon as your images are edited I’ll be posting to Instagram as the festival unfolds. I’ll send you a link to an online gallery of your images ASAP too.
Can I Have The Images?
YES! Absolutely. You will be able to download the images, and post wherever you like. You can use them for any Press and PR too. I can also send them directly to your management or PR peeps. I’ll give you more information when you come and have your photo taken.
What’s The Catch?
There’s no catch! I’ll ask you to sign a release form, but I have your best interests at heart. If there’s interest in the images (say for an exhibition or some such) I will be sure to let you know before anything happens with them. This is a personal project for me, and I’d love to do this every year and grow it into something great and fun.
Please feel free to get in touch via the online form.
