Spring is officially here and the trees are blossoming, which is why Design Office think it is the perfect time for schools and colleges to think about refreshing their portfolio of photography.

Here at Design Office we pride ourselves in being specialists in school photography shoots and as just one of our many services we can offer high quality, professional photographs that are shot and post-processed by our very own talented photographer.

When it comes to advertising your school, the Design Office team truly understands that the images used to illustrate the school and its culture can be the difference between a student choosing to be educated there or somewhere else. We appreciate what a negative impact just one amateur photograph can make which is why we take the necessary steps to ensure that each and every school we work with gains the perfect collection of photographs.

When we take a booking for a photography shoot we will always book a pre-shoot site survey at the same time, for around a week before the event. During this meet a member of our team will visit your chosen location, walk around with you and discuss your school or college’s main aims and objectives and what goals you would like to achieve using these photographs. We will establish the key subjects within your educational environment and what strengths you would like to promote with your photographs. From there we will then discuss your preferred locations on your premises and finally collate all of the information to create the perfect shoot list. To ensure that you are fully prepared and the event day runs as smoothly as possible we will also suggest any props that we think you might need when the time comes for our photographer to stage manage the shots.

On the day of the actual shoot our photographer will meet you on location, complete with a fabulous Canon 1100D SLR camera and a range of lenses and filters including their 18-55mm, 50mm and 75-300mm lenses, as well as UV and ND filters. Such an extensive suite of equipment allows our photographer to take a great variety of photographs including close range, long distance range and sharp, crisp images, as well as softer, slightly blurred images.

Prior to the day we would of course ask if you could obtain permission from the parents of the children that we would be photographing to ensure that they are aware of what we are doing and why. On the day of the event our photographer would then confirm that all of the children selected to appear in the photographs have the relevant permission to be a part of the project.

Following the shoot our photographer will then spend some time using our Apple Macs and high quality photography software to carefully select and post-process the strongest images, developing the perfect collection of photographs for your school.
