School Photography has constraints that other types of Photography do not. Apart from CRB Check issues, there are practical ones that may need to be overcome too. For example, some parents do not like photos of their children to appear on any web site, even if password protected. And most prefer an individual password, so that other parents, even of children in the same class can’t see their photos.
Sadly, some children are under court protection, and this also means that their photos cannot appear on the internet in any form.
We operate a system that takes account of all these issues and requires minimum effort from teachers and other school staff.
First, we visit the school and discuss their individual requirements. Options include:
- Whole School Photos
- Class Photos (with or without teacher)
- Photos with siblings
- Number of photos taken (usually three, to give a choice)
- Photos with parents – usually first thing in the morning
- Overlays with school logo, details, date etc.
After taking the photos, we deliver “proof cards” to the school for distribution to the parents. That’s the last involvement the school need to have – no collection of orders, handling money, and so on.
Parents can order their photos either on line, using a reference code printed on the proof card next to each photo, by post, or by phone. The finished photos are then dispatched within 5 working days and delivered direct to their door. When ordering online, you have the opportunity to purchase additional items, such as keyrings, mugs and mousemats.
