Creating a standout prospectus that makes your school, college or university shine doesn’t happen by chance.
There are all sorts of factors that go into creating a truly exceptional end result, one of the main ones being something that we know all about here at dpix Creative Photography – images.
Your prospectus could be printed on the finest quality materials and contain the best written copy in the world, but if your pictures aren’t top of the class then, as harsh as it may sound, it doesn’t really stand a chance against the others.
Photographs are one of the first things people look at as they’re flicking through your prospectus. And if your images aren’t engaging or look professional, then chances are people aren’t going to give your prospectus a second glance (as much as you’d really like them to!)
50+ years’ experience
But how do we know? Well, first things first, we – Julie King and Darren Shipman – the duo behind dpix, have more than 50 years’ combined photography experience between us, which includes school prospectus photography.
Working as a team, we’ve worked with countless schools, colleges and universities right across the UK over the years and provided them with truly standout creative photography. (If you don’t believe us, take a look at some of the shots for yourself and if you’d like to see more of this type of thing, make sure you follow us on Instagram).
Being the highly professional photographers that we are, we’re also qualified members of the British Institute of Professional Photography and DBS-checked, which means we’ve undergone all of the necessary checks to be able to work with children.
But that’s not all. Aside from our extensive experience and professional accreditations, you’ll also find that that we both have something that not all creative photographers have – and that’s a real flair, as well as a passion for school prospectus photography.
So, what does this mean for you?
Well, we don’t just simply rock up on the day, take a few shots and disappear again before you know it. While we appreciate it’s important to keep any potential disruption to a minimum, we love a challenge, which means we work hard to interact with your students and staff and really bring out the best of them on camera.
Using the latest professional equipment and lighting, we take pride in making sure each and every one of our school prospectus shoots are of the highest creative standard and, more importantly, tick all of your boxes. From taking a few shots in a matter of hours, to doing a two to three-day session, we can tailor our services to meet your specific requirements.
And, because we want your prospectus images to be the best they possibly can be, we’ll also give you some pointers for you to consider before we arrive. Don’t worry, it’s not homework, we won’t mark you down if you don’t learn it however, it is well worth you giving it a read if you can! For instance, it contains guidance on what you can expect from your shoot with us, as well practical advice, such as planning colourful and engaging activities for us to focus on and having a real cross section of students in your pictures.
So, if you were thinking about cutting corners with your photography or have always viewed it as a bit of an afterthought, don’t, it can make all the difference between you being yet another establishment or standing head and shoulders above the competition. The question is – which category do you want to fall into?
