About Acorn

Staffed almost entirely by humans, Acorn is a creative photographic studio, a meeting place for wastrels and a repository for vintage bicycles. But seriously, we are truly nerdy about photography & technology.

We value the diversity of our client base. The different challenges each week brings keep us young(ish) and our work fresh. While the majority of our work is close to home and our studio in Subiaco, we travel throughout Australia and the world to make great photos. Like any studio worth its salt we’re nuts about gear too... whatever the brief, we’re camera-ready!


Robert Frith

Old enough to know better, young enough not to care, not even 2 broken wrists from a bicycle stunt-riding accident could keep Rob from behind the lens.
