Create beautiful portraits for yourself, social platforms, dating sites or as a gift for a loved one.

With studios in Melbourne and Sydney, at Alise Black Photographic Studios we infuse a fresh, creative and modern approach to portrait photography. Individual portrait photography is about the expression, personality and mood of the subject for people of all shapes, sizes and ages.


Being photographed professionally is very different to a modern day 'selfie' - years of training and experience will create imagery you are proud of for generations. You may mix your Session into a variety of styles; traditional portraiture, professional business brandingfine art glamourboudoir and/or semi nude photography. It's your choice.



Our studios offer a completely private experience for our clients for 3 hours during a Portrait photoshoot. Professional studio, lights, camera is included in a relaxing environment.


Our spaces in Sydney and Melbourne are stunning national award winning warehouse conversions, with lots of natural light, lifestyle areas and professional studio backdrops.

You will work with Treia, our highly experienced Stylist. Styling expertise, a colour consult, clothing consultation and lots of shoot preparation is provided.


We create 3 styles of shoots. Some clients choose to create a range of natural looks, formal or fashion to diversify their Collection.

Work with our expert hair and makeup artist. We understand how important it is to bring the photographic lighting, styling and makeup together. We use Kryolan photographic high definition makeup, to achieve a flawless look.

To diversify your images we alter makeup and hair 3 times. Individual lashes may also be applied and are a beautiful detail in Portraiture Photography.

Alise Black is a formally trained professional photographer with more than 20 years experience. Portrait Photography is a very detailed photographic style requiring expert guidance, technical skill and training.

Even our most shy clients love the experience with us because our studios are private and we personalise your photography session to your comfort.  Alise will show you how to position yourself in front of the camera and coach you through a range of facial expressions to complement the shoot styles.

The first edit of natural retouching is applied to the final Collection of shots before you see them on the day. Providing a same day viewing is really rare in the industry and just another reason why people love working us.

Natural skin softening and removal of body marks is complimentary. We offer a retouching menu for personalised requests. We understand that some clients are self conscious about some areas and will ensure this is treated with the upmost care and sensitivity. 

The edited Collection is presented for you to view and order on the same day. Photography is a personalised product and generally you won't know what you'll want to order, until you see the results of what we create for you. With us, you have complete freedom and control to order to your comfort. Contact us to receive our private photoshoot pricing.

We love creating modern portrait photography. Our clients choose to do photo shoot for many reasons; dating websites, gifts for loved ones, to capture a special birthday or simply just for themselves.

"I had a photo session with Alise as a treat for myself and came away with the most empowered smile on my face! I've never done anything like this before and the team was an absolute joy to work with. They created such a comfortable, intimate and sensual environment which made me feel like a million bucks, both during the shoot and when I received my images.Could not recommend highly enough. Thank you!!"
