Prospectus Photography Guide:
Our purpose is to give you a library of creative images, which portray the school or college firstly as a seat of great learning and secondly as a pleasant place to study. It is therefore important that staff and students look engaged in their activities and certainly a good majority should be with a smile. There are obviously areas where to be serious is necessary, but overall happy faces emerging from the page or screen are an attractive prospect and more likely to encourage the potential student (or parent) to select your establishment.
What happens on the day?:
We would normally arrive at the commencement of the school or college day and may involve photography of students being dropped off if the environment is appropriate. Below is an image list which you may find useful, but is by no means an expectation of every assignment, or for that matter complete, it is merely a guide.
After a brief meeting with whoever is coordinating the day, we will commence photography of the school or college. It is obviously important that all staff and students are made aware of photography taking place before our arrival and appropriate dress for all is maintained throughout the day. If your policy is for jackets and tops to be worn please be flexible, as a few shots in crisp white shirts can freshen up the overall look - again variety is essential.
Some areas may be well lit and available light is used, however for most situations we use our own lighting which produces a clean contemporary look. Approximately 15 - 20 minutes should be allowed for each location within the school or college. Remember, we are creating high quality commercial photography which takes time, but the effort will be well rewarded with vibrant images which set your establishment apart from the rest and a typical days shoot may produce up to 60 images. If you are a small to medium organisation who require a general overview of your services, one day should be sufficient, however larger schools or colleges who have many departments and wide ranging activities may extend into further days. Consider the seasons; would it be good to have some shots in May and others in September?
Supply of your Prospectus Images:
We capture using professional digital cameras and the images will be adjusted as appropriate in our studio before they are supplied to you. You will receive a disc with the image files saved in two formats, one for reproduction in school or college prospectus, brochures and general advertising as high resolution TIFFs, and a much lower 'screen resolution' as 72dpi JPEGs which can be used for viewing, emailing and website. A digital reference sheet is also included to aid selection.
Print and Web Prospectus Design:
Although we do not offer these services 'in-house' we have been in business long enough to know good design and who produces it. If you are considering 2nd Image Photography for your prospectus photography, then image quality for you and your school or college matters and this should extend to final design in web or print. We can introduce the right person for your style and budget.
