School prospectus photography

Schools need to market themselves with engaging websites, beautiful prospectuses, large images on the school walls,  and a well-managed social media strategy.  To bring all this to life and stand out from the crowd, it is crucial to have a large collection of compelling images. The best school prospectus photography is a sound investment. Prospective parents want to see what school life and the learning environment is like. They want to see happy, engaged, curious and proud children displaying the ethos of the school.

Be it for pre-school nurseries, primary schools, secondary or higher education, I have a background that matches the requirements. Fitting in with children of all ages is a speciality of mine. I have been a renowed children’s photographer for 12+ years, and previously taught in the University sector.  I have clients from pre-schools to Universities.  Prospectus photography for schools needs an expert.

I’m based in Warwickshire, near Birmingham, and travel throughout the UK to meet the needs of different schools.  I’ll listen to your needs and we’ll create a schedule for the day.  There will be great images of the children enjoying activites, sports, classes, different subjects, the small details that make a big difference- everything from Forest school to 6th form.  I can also include images of the buildings and facilities if needed.

The photoshoot at the school

We plan the day(s) well in advance so that everything gets covered. I find it’s best to chat on the phone & talk over ideas and what everyone wants. Then on the day have a schedule, with everyone prepared. Typically a whole range of subjects indoor & outdoor are included. Plus some photos of the buildings and facilities, children at breaktime, and perhaps some hero shots that take a little longer to set up.

Typically some shots are staged and some candid. It depends on the ages of the children and what’s needed.

What they said

Here’s what one headteacher said: “The pictures are delightful – thank you!! I feel you really captured the feel of the school perfectly and the results are stunning. The children and adults really enjoyed you being here and your sensitivity and enthusiasm were really appreciated.  The wall displays have really had an impact already and brought so many smiles to so many faces, children and adults alike.  The quality of the artistry in  them is really exceptional, thank you for capturing such beautiful images” –

and here’s what one deputy head said about working with me:
“We’re really very pleased with these…  Fab photos – exactly what we needed.  We were looking to capture the spirit of our Academy: to inspire, achieve and celebrate. Laurence suceeded. His enthusiastic and warm interactions with our pupils – youngest and oldest – and our staff which was exactly what made them relax, smile and interact. What Laurence captured will enable us to project our spirit into all our materials and online profile. We thank and highly recommend Laurence.”
