About UsEverything you ever wanted to know about Studio G Photography but were afraid to ask.
Photography Less Ordinary
Here at Studio G Photography we know that while some of our clients can’t wait to get in front of a camera, for others it’s a bit of an ordeal, so we put a lot of effort into making everyone feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible. Whether you’re here for a memorable family portrait, a beautiful newborn baby photoshoot, a children’s photoshoot party, a fabulous piece of Fairytography artwork or a business headshot, we’ll try our hardest to put you at ease from the outset, by making sure we know exactly what you want, and giving you just the right amount of advice where you’re not sure.
The majority of our business is portrait and party photography, but we’re also happy to photograph business and family events and provide photobooths for special occasions and parties of all types. We have a number of commercial clients for whom we provide headshots, business portraits, images for websites and promotional material.
We’re based in Yorkshire Street, in the heart of Oldham. Like everything else we do, our base is rooted in the community, in the Hack Oldham building. Established in 2015, Hack Oldham is a community owned and operated co-working and makerspace bringing technology, crafts and other general fun within the reach of all. We’ve been part of Hack Oldham from the initial planning stages, and we feel very much at home there. We have plenty of space and all the facilities we need. We can promise all our visitors a warm welcome, a brew, and free wifi. We also have a separate meeting room when privacy is needed.
We are easy to reach by public transport or by car, with local parking (paid) available, and we’re few minutes’ walk from pubs, restaurants and a brand new cinema. We have 24/7 access to the building, so we can be available when our clients need us.
We are very proud of what we’ve created at Studio G. But don’t just take our word for it. Come and have a look round and have a coffee on us. Just call us to let us know you’re coming and we’ll warm up the coffee machine.

Make it fun
Values aside, our number one rule at Studio G Photography is that portrait sessions should be fun. We want everyone to have a good time.
These are the people we call upon to work with us on a regular basis. They are all highly recommended and we couldn’t function without them.
Multi-talented Kaylie runs her own dance school, Ultimate Dance, in Shaw, when she is not choreographing Pop Diva parties for us. Kaylie can play the role of several princesses, is a charming children’s entertainer and can also turn her hand to hair and makeup when needed.
Sharon has been a make-up artist for 7 years and a further education tutor and assessor for the past 4 years. She was a MAC artist for 3 of those years, attended Val Garland’s School of make-up and continued to maintain links with artists and industry whilst teaching.

She understands the way we work instinctively and contributes some excellent creative ideas.
Natale Cristina Rea
Natale first came to Studio G in the late summer of 2015 to model for a creative photographic brief for designer Matthew Williamson. She fitted into the team like she had always known us and has been our model of choice ever since. Natale is smart, creative and ultra-professional. She is always on time and trusts us to do whatever we like with her, even when that means bleaching her eyebrows. Natale, who is also a hairdresser and beauty therapist, is a vital part of the Studio G creative team and is now leading the planning of her own styled photoshoots. She also regularly turns up with home baking for everyone.
