Shamrock Space Studio is a group of talented Cairns based portrait photographers, we believe that portrait photography is an art form, not something that can be done easily with just a click of your smartphone camera. It is different than normal selfies that we always see posted on social media sites. It takes hundreds of shots for a good portrait photographer to capture the personality of the subject by adjusting lighting, poses, and backdrops.
Our approach to portrait photography
In order to obtain the desired picture we work together with our clients till we get the best possible customer feedback from our photography session. We will not stop shooting until our customer is content with the results. Several factors dictate how long a photography session can last but in general, photoshoots last from 2 hours up to a couple of days. It can be done in a studio or in different remote locations, such as busy streets in the CBD, coffee shops, beach-sides, forests or mountains etc. It is important to know the location so that we can adequately prepare and deliver the best possible results.

*FAQs - questions to your portrait photographer
How many edited photos can I expect from a 2 hour session?
We would say: it can receive from 10 to 30 photographs however the average is around 20. Generally, this depends on many factors and circumstances. For instance: how many photo locations you choose , how far away your locations from each other, whether require to change your outfit, hair style, make up etc., during your portrait photo session.
But we can always collaborate and find a proper solution.
One of the most asked question to portrait photographer is “what the best time to take photos?”
As commonly know the best time for almost any type of photography including portrait photography is "the golden hour" or "magic hour". This is the time of day when the sun is low in the sky just around sunrise or sunset. Normally, this is 30-40 minutes after sunrise and before sunset.
Taking photographs, and particularly portraits around this time can give you golden, dramatic and extremely pleasant and softer light.
You can always check and schedule your portrait photo session time refer to this link.
Please note that it is better to arrive at the chosen location 30-40 minutes before the "golden hour". You will need this time gap to get used to the place, talk with your portrait photographer, take a test photo, check clothes, poses, composition, discuss your own ideas, wishes and other details.
How much time should I spend on my portrait photo session?
To address this question we have to understand your requirements such as how many locations would like to visit and if there are two or more, how far away they from each other? Do you need to change you hair style, makeup, outfit during the photo session etc.?
In general, aim to allow 1 – 1 ½ hours for each location during your portrait photo session. As professional portrait photographers, we understand that your time can be limited, which is why we will do our very best to make the most of every minute we spend with you.
