Studio Mondo was founded in 2001 by one of Australia’s most renowned fashion photographers, Grant Matthews. Since then, Grant has been joined by General Manager Alice Cook, Chief of Operations Kris Asprey and Chief Technology Officer Benjamin Storrier. Between them comes a full suite of experience; while Grant acts as a creative lead across the business, Benjamin focuses on technical efficiencies, Alice manages the production department and team of in-house staff and Kris ensures that our client-centric remains at the core of everything we do.
Over the years we have expanded our Studio Mondo team to include photographers, stylists, producers, copywriters, technicians and account managers. What we value most in our people comes out in our work – passion, integrity and a commitment to quality.
