Oscar Colman Portrait Studio


As a millennial, oddly perhaps, I yearn for the values, patinas, rich textures, detailed hand crafted world of yesteryear. I want to slow down the rush, the hustle and bustle and really seep into the moment, linger to capture beyond the obvious. Draw out the essence. Photography is the tool, driven by authenticity - in myself and my portraits. 

"Be daring, be different, be Impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary" - Cecil Beaton (1904-1980)



Oscar Colman is a portrait and headshot photographer based in Sydney Australia. Self taught, he has worked professionally for the last eight years in  photojournalism, events, specialising in portraits. His boutique studio with attitude is in the arty, historic precinct of Surry Hills.

Tools of the Trade

Using top notch equipment, software, up to the second lenses and lighting, with tethering allowing for real-time feed back between the subject and photographer, we take chance out of the picture. To simplify the process, you are provided with a streamlined online proofing gallery to select your images to be retouched and downloaded.

Beyond the Studio

 In addition to studio, we offer outdoor nearby settings in the historic, visually lush, CBD fringe precinct of Surry Hills. Also location/environment sessions, events - nationally and internationally.
