LIST: 10 self-shoot studios to visit for professional-looking selfies

By Leanne Baldelovar Published Aug 11, 2022 1:15 pm

Remember "studio pics" and "barkada shots"? (Millennials, you should know!) Now, getting your photos taken in a studio is 'in' again, but there's a twist: there will be no photographer in sight.

Self-portrait photography is gaining popularity in the Philippines, especially for introverts and camera-shy individuals. This trend first started in South Korea where self-shoot studios are rented for professional selfies, meaning they could take photos of themselves using the professional photography equipment provided by the studio.

In case you’re wondering how it works, these studios let you take your photos without being photographed (or judged) by other people. Simply put, you can be a model and photographer at the same time!

If you want to give it a try with your partner, barkada, family, pet, or even just by yourself, here are some self-portrait studios in the Philippines.

Atomm Studios  

The studio that started the phenomenon locally, Atomm Studios is the first and has become the most well-known self-portrait studio in the Philippines. You may choose six earth-tone-colored and colorful backdrops to have your portraits taken professionally. Furparents are also welcome to bring their furbabies as they allow pets in the studio. You can get in the studio for a 15-minute photoshoot for as low as P1,750 for 1-2 pax.
