Education

I’m often commissioned by schools to create promotional imagery for their websites and prospectuses. I work closely with the school to make sure I understand the look and feel they want to get across and to make sure the images I shoot will be suitable for their needs. I photograph children and young adults of all ages from nursery, infants, juniors, high schools, sixth forms and universities.
I really enjoy producing photography for school and nurseries.  When young children are engaged in activities they are so natural and generally forget about the camera and it becomes easy to capture some really beautiful images.

Older children and young adults love to be involved and are very media savvy so they easily understand what’s needed from them. Great images can really help showcase the wonderful work your school is doing and using inspiring pictures on your website and in social media campaigns can capture the imaginations of prospective parents and impress at school inspections.
I work on location all across the North of England covering areas such as Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, York, Liverpool, Hull, Birmingham, Preston and Warrington.

“I found Claire’s work via the internet and was really impressed by the quality and consistency of her photography. We therefore commissioned Claire for our school’s new website and she came in and spent a whole day with us and it is thanks to her that our new site looked bright, positive and welcoming. Claire was amazing … she chatted away and made every student feel relaxed and special which in turn encouraged natural smiles. Many shots were set up to allow for a portrait or a landscape crop, her attention to detail re backgrounds and the pupils themselves (whether it was hair, a tie and collar, positioning of a hand etc) was exceptional – every detail was considered to get the best shot. She focused in on the student and used soft focus in the background and at times, allowed for a plain background which would let us use an image as a cut out or a brightly coloured background which made the images look bright and positive.

Claire’s work is exceptional, she is very professional and efficient and I cannot recommend Claire or her work highly enough and I am hoping she will return to work with us again soon”.
