This Photo Studio Lets You Take Your Own Photos

Picture this, you’re in a photo studio, dressed in your finest attire. You take your poses along with the people around you, you wait for the classic “Ready? 1, 2 – Smile” cue from the photographer, except it never comes. Because the camera clicker is in your hands, you are the photographer, this is your shoot, and you have total creative control. No, this is not a dream, not when you’re at Self Ctrl K Studio.

The concept of a self-photo studio has been pretty popular in Korea for quite a while now. But it was only in November 2020 when Hyunchae decided that it would be fun to introduce this photography concept to Malaysians. And that’s how Self Ctrl K Studio was born!

Basically, the studio will provide all the equipment on set, that includes lighting, backdrop, camera and monitor. All you need to do is press the remote control shutter while you pose for the camera and voila!

The entire process will take around 40 to 45 minutes, which includes 10 minutes for prepping, 20 minutes for the self-photoshoot and the remaining time is for the selection and printing of the photos, which are 4×6 in photo size.

Unlike the tiny selfie photo booths, self-photo studios like this offer more space for users to try out as many creative poses as possible. And the best part is, you don’t have to worry about getting judged by the photographer for your embarrassing poses (trust me, we’ve all been there).

As a full-time business process analyst, Hyunchae actually started the self-photo studio as a hobby to cope with the pandemic lockdown boredom that hit her late last year. For now, Hyunchae mainly runs the business alone, with a little help from her mum and friends.

Self Ctrl K Studio is open 11am to 6pm from Monday to Saturday and 1pm to 6pm on Sunday. You can visit them at Empire City, Damansara but remember to make your reservation at least a day in advance (do note that a RM50 deposit fee is required upon reservation).

Check them out on Instagram (@selfctrl.studio) to make a reservation for a self-photo shoot session with your friends, family or even your pet!
