Hi, I’m Heng-Yau Sua. A husband, and a dad of one lovely daughter. 


Welcome to Time Gap Studio, it was re-named after 8prilStudio, where artistry meets passion in the heart of Melbourne, VIC. I am delighted to introduce myself as the founder and photographer, currently residing in the eastern suburb. Alongside my work as a Haematology Medical Scientist at a major public hospital in Victoria, I have nurtured a sincere devotion to photography since 2013.

With a specialisation in portrait photography, my focus lies in capturing the precious moments of newborns, toddlers, and children. As a proud member of esteemed organizations like APPI, WPPI, PPAC, and WPA, my dedication to the craft has been recognized through various international photography awards, particularly for my exceptional work in portraits and newborn photography. These accolades stand as a testament to my professionalism, technical expertise, and years of valuable experience.

Photography, for me, transcends mere business; it is a profound source of joy and fulfillment. The art of creating and celebrating every new life that comes into this world fills my heart with immense happiness. When working with my clients, I always place myself in their shoes and ask, "Have I treated them as I would wish to be treated?" This approach ensures that every piece of artwork I produce can be cherished and treasured as a timeless keepsake for generations to come.

If you are seeking to capture those special moments and create extraordinary memories together, I would be honored to work with you. Feel free to reach out to me through LiveChat, email at, or simply by clicking here. Let's connect and embark on a journey of artistic collaboration that will leave you with awe-inspiring photographs that speak volumes.

Thank you for considering Time Gap Studio, and I eagerly look forward to capturing your cherished moments.

Warm regards,

Heng-Yau Sua
