Raising the bar for studio space, MONDO STUDIO inhabits a huge warehouse space in Sydney’s inner city suburb of Waterloo, with the fit out designed by renowned Sydney architect Alexander Michael. Michael’s is also known for Wombat Towers his acclaimed Kangaroo Valley private residence, and the head office refurbishment for 4Arrows Group at Jones Bay Wharf amongst other projects.
MONDO STUDIO steps into the gap created by a lack of Daylight studios in Sydney, with natural daylight suffusing the two large studios through huge windows lining the walls. The high ceilings are painted a dark matt grey to reduce glare and light reflection, and beautiful modern common spaces encourage a friendly and relaxing level of interaction that introduces a new level of freedom for clients and visitors. These are just a few of the small details that go a long way in creating the ultimate environment for photographic shoots, and setting MONDO STUDIO apart from other photographic studios. Huge rolling orange doors separate the different working spaces and ad a cheeky brightness to this creative, designed space.
As a full service provider, MONDO STUDIO has formed a strategic alliance with lighting supplier The Front, who is based under the same roof. Now the need for any Profoto Studio Flash or Briese Light Shapers can be solved in-house, ensuring all elements of the photographic shoot are covered if required.
MONDO STUDIO is the latest element to complement the suite of digital photographic services that come under the Mondo Group of companies. Other arms of the Group include Mondo Digital, which specialises in technical support for fashion photographic shoots using digital technologies and unique in-house web services and software, such as the Mondo Digital Web Gallery. Mondo Digital also hires out state of the art equipment for all photographic and workflow needs. Mondo Film is an established Film Production company, creating TVCs for clients such as Nivea, Mastercard and Schwarzkopf. Mondo Mondo is the freelance services of Grant Matthews as Photographer and Director, teaming up with renowned Fashion identity Judith Cook as Stylist.
The Mondo Group was established by renowned photographer Grant Matthews in 2002. Matthews’ creative vision, technical expertise and first hand knowledge of the industry provides the essential ingredient to delivering top shelf services for his clients. MONDO STUDIO as a purpose built facility reflects this with intrinsic design details, such as the wonderful full daylight facilities totally embraced by the absence of a fixed cyclorama and replaced by a supportable lino roll on wheels, to be able to shoot from any angle or corner of the studio, taking full advantage of the natural light. All furniture is on wheels and wide open corridors between rooms increases this ease of movement and flexibility. The beautifully chromed open plan kitchen provides an inviting common space for relaxing and catering needs. And on street parking is ample in this quiet neighbourhood.
MONDO STUDIO complements the existing suite of digital photographic services available through Mondo Group; combining personalised service with quality, high-end digital photography management from inception to print delivery, with pricing structures that can suit all budgets.
