Last week I visited Wetherby Preparatory School in the heart of Marylebone in Central London. The school wanted to update their School prospectus photography and enquired about my services as a London School Prospectus Photographer. I was really happy to be available and able to help.
Their school is one of the most prestigious London Preparatory Schools, some well known faces, including members of the Royal Family have studied there. It felt somehow special to be invited to capture a day in this school.
London School Prospectus Photographer – Consultation and planning
First of all we set up a date when it is going to be convenient for the school to have the photographer attending, usually a date with different lessons taking places and sport activities, which would work really well in the school prospectus and school website. We will create a photographic schedule, so on the day everyone can be picture-ready and a visually interesting activity might be coordinated.
My approach to School Photography is mostly a fly-on-the-wall approach. This keeps disruption to a minimum during the school day. In my opinion those are the best photographs, that show the real enthusiasm of the students. Of course I can also provide additional lighting if needed, and stage some photographs if required.
Another thing to take into consideration as a London Prospectus School Photographer is the parent consent and to make sure that every student photographed is actually allowed and has permission to be photographed. Usually I will ask the school to provide a list and help me identify those that cannot be in photographs, so then I can avoid them through the day in a subtle manner. Occasionally if there is a requirement for a group photo I might have to ask them to step out.
London School Prospectus Photographer: The School Day
Throughout the day I will photograph all the different lessons and the students looking engaged and excited about their learning. There are usually so many opportunities as I find students can get really enthusiastic with the right teachers to motivated them, something that is key to my School Prosectus Photography.
London School Prospectus Photographer – What makes your School Unique?
My aim as a School Prospectus Photographer is to showcase what makes your school unique, the school values and ethos but also those little charming gems. Wetherby has a secret (not so secret!) member of staff, Nancy, their Therapy Dog, and let me tell you that she is probably the most loved dog that I have ever come across!
