Photography Experience

Man taking family portrait

Costumed photography sessions.

Discover your gold rush alter ego when you step inside our photography studio for an 1850s-style portrait.

Dress in our beautiful Victorian-era costumes and be instantly transported to the Ballarat goldfields.

The photographic experience takes 15 minutes and the prints will be ready to pick up in an hour.

Sitting fee booking does not include the cost of the prints or any add-ons. These will need to be agreed on and paid for when you arrive 5 minutes prior to your sitting time.

Sittings are available to book online for groups of up to 6 (children are included as an individual in the final cost). Additionally, people attending on the day that are not a part of the original booking will not be photographed (photographers’ discretion)

For groups larger than 6, please contact our photography team directly to discuss how we can create a pictorial memorial. Email:

During your photographic experience, no personal photos are permitted during the experience.

Availability of sessions varies every day – online bookings may fill quickly. If there are no times available to book online, please speak with our Photography team on arrival to Sovereign Hill.
