Looking to get some poolside pictures that give off a bit of that Hollywood or Beverly Hills vibe? Then you’ll want to see this charming Californian bungalow in Kew East with a poolside that’s perfect for pictures. Along with the pool that was installed in 2021, there is also fresh limestone paving, palm trees, and a dark backdrop for privacy. For less than A$100 an hour, this is an amazing deal for a magazine-quality photo shoot location.

“Anna’s property was incredible, clean and beautiful. We had a family lifestyle photo shoot that required multiple scenarios and Anna’s property was beyond perfect.” said producer Megan B. “The number of options we had to choose from was outstanding (pool, trampoline, bbq with deck, firepit, basketball hoop and a backyard) and the interior of the property photographed beautifully. Anna’s place also provided all the essentials you would find in your home (cutlery, cookware, sheets, towels etc.) which made set design a dream. Can’t recommend this property enough!”

2. Tuscan farmhouse in Menzies Creek

One of the best ways to get incredible photos of any city you’re in is by heading up to a roof. However, this opportunity isn’t always available, or you’ll find yourself on a roof with an obstructed view. Thankfully, if you’re in Melbourne, you can find Harvie’s in Armadale on Peerspace! It has a rooftop with panoramic, uninterrupted views of the city skyline, making it one of the best spots in town to grab a bite and take some pictures of the skyline.
