Self photo studios are a trend hailing from Korea where K-pop celebs were seen taking photos with a shutter clicker in their hands, and have been all the rage in Singapore.


It's a great date and hangout activity for introverts especially, as there won't be a photographer on set - just you and bae, or friends! If you haven't had the chance to try it out, it's perhaps time to jump on the bandwagon and visit one of these seven self photo studios in Singapore soon.

Read on to find out more!

#1 Photobytes

Photobytes black and whitePhoto from Photobytes

While most self photo studios typically provide a white backdrop, Photobytes takes the experience up a notch with a selection of backdrops and themes to choose from!

Go for Dark Mood - with the classic black backdrop - if you want to channel those aesthetic, artsy vibes. Select from dark mood monochrome or dark mood colour.

Prefer a coloured backdrop? Book RGB Color, where you will get to choose between red, green or blue - just like its name suggests. It's worthy to note that even the coloured backdrops come in muted shades, so there's no need to worry that you will stick out like a sore thumb against it.
