I WAS A TEACHER FOR OVER FIFTEEN YEARS...
... and now I'm a professional photographer and I love going back to take the school photographs.
I believe that it's worth investing more time in taking a brilliant photo. For me, the picture is key. I make sure that the children are relaxed, that they’re smiling, and that they look ‘photograph ready’.
Even after the picture is taken, I make sure that it’s looking its best before having it printed. I take more than one style of picture too so that parents have the choice of which photo they want.
Using the award winning GotPhoto online hosting site and shop makes the whole ordering process really simple too. The parents purchase straight from me so you don't need to handle any of the money.
But don't just take my word for it, have a look at some of the kind words I've had from schools and parents.
It was a pleasure working alongside Tim, he was very efficient and approachable with both pupils and staff, followed school Covid procedures keeping children safe. Delivered high quality pictures, with positive feedback from parents. Would highly recommend.
THE PICTURE IS KEY
For me, the picture is key. It's worth putting the extra effort in get the best photographs I can. It may take a bit longer, but if parents are prepared to invest in these photographs, they deserve the best from the photographer.
I aim to provide at least three poses per child. Again, the parents and children deserve to have the option of a range of pictures. Of course, I can take direction from the school if only one or two are needed.
It is very important to me that I provide all schools with the best service. You have my guarantee that every email is replied to, every phone call is answered or returned as soon as possible, every query responded to and every issue, resolved.
I want every school to say that my photography service was the best they have worked with. I want every parent to say that the photographs I have provided are the best they have bought.
I wanted to email to say how impressed I was with the photographs - they were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and they completely capture us as a school. I’m really looking forward to updating the website and prospectus and putting these in. They couldn’t be more suitable!
Loved mine! They are the best we have had. My daughter doesn't normally like having her pictures done but they came out lovely.
Easy as 1, 2, 3
1. Getting ready for the day
I generate all of the required QR codes cards. These cards will be used on the day of the photographs and for when the parents make their orders.
2. Day of the photographs
On the day (or earlier if necessary), I'll arrive to set up and get to work straight away.
At the end of the day, the children take the QR code cards home for their parents to access and purchase the photographs.
3. Ordering & purchasing
Parents can choose to have their photographs sent home or to your school. I also send out the photos in two batches so that those who purchase early aren't waiting too long for their photographs.
As well as ordering photos and gifts, parents also have the option of downloading one, some or all of the photographs.
Making the orders
All payments are done through my GotPhoto online shop, so you don't need to worry about any of the money.
I know how important it is to reply to messages, emails and phone calls quickly. If there are any issues, I'll resolve it straight away.
Choose your bonus!
As a school, you get to choose your bonus from one of the options below, for having me take your school photos.
Drone footage of your school gives you a short film and shows off your school in spectacular style.
We just arrange a date for when you would like me to come and in and I take some photos for your website, brochure or the all important SEF.
Not as exciting as the other options, but at least you get some cash!
Using the award winning GotPhoto as my online shop, parents use their QR code to access, view and order their photographs. Payment is online and direct to me, so the school doesn't need to worry.
Parents also have the choice of having their photos sent to school or to their home address.
Your children's photography should be an enjoyable experience and one that I am dedicated to making as simple and easy as possible.
So that's outstanding photography and exceptional service. If you're wanting to change your photography supplier (or even if you're not!), get in touch so we can chat about what it is you're after.
