School photography for Preston School

Preston School website

Preston School contacted me as they wanted to refresh their existing school photography and were looking for a secondary school photographer. Another photographer had taken photographs for them as long as 4 years ago, so the School was in great need of a refresh. Although many images had been taken the last time, the images didn't visually make the most of the positives of the school. Some were dark, there wasn’t great focus on the subject matter, or clutter was seen in the background. As only a few good images were gleaned from the last photo shoot, those that were good enough were repeated somewhat which meant a lack of variety in the current marketing materials.


New secondary school photography was desperately needed. Also headshots of staff members on the school’s website needed a refresh and greater consistency. A fresh set of headshot photos and a new approach to the general photos to promote the school was required to get better results.


Existing school photography already in my commercial portfolio was enough to secure the job, but the first thing I did was consult with Preston school as to how I would improve on their photos they'd been using.


Rather than just walk around the school taking photos off hand. A timetable was drawn up to make sure I had time with each pupil or group of pupils in an arranged subject context. This allowed me to take more control and provide school photography of a higher standard. Also, rather than only getting a few grab shots that were good, I could instead get a much wider variety of angles and set ups. This allowed for greater opportunities later on when laying up the photos in artwork such as school prospectuses, flyers, newspaper adverts and bus backs.


The final photos were very well received. So much so an extra day was arranged to get more photos of some different subjects. The secondary school now has an excellent selection of school photography that will be used to produce visually appealing promotional materials such as prospectuses, flyers etc, to show off what the school has to offer.


2015: "We have worked with Ross for 3 years (soon to be 4) for our Marketing material.


Ross is very friendly and makes the students and staff feel at ease. He is always accommodating when we have strict deadlines to meet. Most importantly he is an excellent photographer.


Highly recommended."

Bridgwater & Taunton College prospectus photography

Bridgwater College now Bridgwater & Taunton College, asked me to provide prospectus photography for them.


The college prospectus photos needed to show each student in the context of what they were studying from a number of angles to allow many options for designers. Students needed to be looking engaged and enjoying themselves. I then went about photographing each student in a given time slot trying out a number of scenarios.


Subjects covered were for example: Art & Design, Agriculture, Automotive, Business, catering, Engineering, Forensic Science, Hairdressing, Horticulture, Media, Music, Performing Arts, Sport & Exercise Science.


Aside from some supporting images, visually my photography was the main core of the college prospectus. Along with the work of the designers, the result was a strong finished product the client was very happy with.


Some of the images were later used as large format photo boards that lined the corridor at Bridgwater & Taunton College, as well as being used in multiple other publications, flyers, the Bridgwater & Taunton College website and livery on local buses.

A year on and another prospectus. I photographed another 50 or so students for the new college prospectus, and just like before, the students were photographed in a variety of environments from Biology and Physics, to Performing Arts and Fine Art.


The photography was also to be used in a range of printed media besides the college prospectus, s were taken in both portrait and landscape format.


The photo shoots, spread over a couple of weeks, produced a wealth of high quality colourful images, and have as a result, greatly helped the college draw attention to its excellent facilities.


I have since also provided photography for Bridgwater & Taunton College at various awards ceremonies and conferences.

Primary school photography

First impressions are everything and when it comes to schools, parents want the very best for their children. It is up to schools to deliver a school prospectus that communicate why their school is special, why they care about their kids and why their children get the best education.


Good school photography will communicate the equivalent of a thousand words. Your learning facilities, enthusiastic teachers passionate in providing top level education, and the children building important friendships in a safe environment. I will capture all of this for your school prospectus in colourful fun images that are alive and reflect your best strengths.


Putting together your school prospectus is a big undertaking, but my images will sit perfectly with the reputation you want to show off. Bold images that capture every aspect of school life and make marketing your school a doddle. Having the right photos, not just for your school prospectus, but also for banners, reports, posters and a variety of other communicative materials. I will help you deliver the right image, and that all important first impression that puts you first in the minds of parents looking for a school for their child.
