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 Manchester, Sheffield, York, Liverpool, Birmingham, Preston and Warrington as well as Yorkshire in Leeds and Hull.

“I found Claire’s work via the internet. Ultimately, the quality and consistency of her photography are impressive. We, therefore, commissioned Claire for our school’s new website. She came in and spent a whole day with us. It’s thanks to her that our new site looked bright, positive and welcoming.

“Claire was amazing. She chats away and makes every student feel relaxed and special which in turn encouraged natural smiles.”

“Many shots can allow for either a portrait or a landscape crop. Moreover, her attention to detail regarding backgrounds and the pupils themselves (whether it was hair, a tie and collar, positioning of a hand etc) is exceptional. In short, every detail draws the necessary consideration to achieve the best shot.”

“She focuses on the student and uses soft focus in the background and at other necessary times. That allows 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”.
