FINE ART SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHY
WHAT IS BOUTIQUE SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHY?
My goal is to provide a boutique experience to all families attending the schools who have chosen me to photograph their students. My service is personal and professional. Unlike large corporate photography operations I prefer to take on a few select schools so that I can provide superior service and beautiful artistic images.
I aim to capture the essence of the children I photograph so I rarely ask them to smile. No awkward poses or faces just relaxed authenticity. With this approach I find that results are genuine and timeless. A far cry from some of the cheesy photos we have become accustomed to with bright flashes and unflattering, busy backgrounds.
I provide all equipment including lighting and backdrop. I take pride in providing an environment where children can relax and be themselves.
WHAT SERVICES DO YOU OFFER?
I am a complete online operation. Families are linked to password-protected online ordering galleries. Galleries are set up according to grade, homeroom, teacher, or whatever grouping makes sense for the school. Two to five images of each child are provided in both colour and black and white. Families may chose which photos they want printed as opposed to having a pose chosen for them. I also provide additional product choices such as canvas gallery wraps and digital images for future printing which are sold separately. A detailed PDF describing all ordering procedures and shooting day preparation will be provided to each school to be distributed to families prior to photo day.
Prints are ordered online and delivered directly to the school. I provide all equipment needed for photo day.
I provide the school with all high resolution digital files to use for yearbooks, websites, school advertising, school, etc. I handle any questions from parents and families about ordering and products.
I provide complimentary digital photos for the teaching staff. And finally I am willing to work with schools to provide custom services that fit your unique needs.
ARE THESE IMAGES EXPENSIVE?
I have competitive rates and nothing is due up front, all profit is made from ordering. I offer a variety of collections and a-la-carte products to fit everyone's needs. I also donate a percentage of my revenues to the schools that I photograph!
WHAT TIME OF YEAR DO YOU CONDUCT THESE FINE ART SCHOOL PHOTO SHOOTS?
I work with each individual school to schedule shoots any time during the academic year.
