School and College Prospectus Photography

Conveying the right message through visually compelling & thought provoking photography is incredibly important. A school’s web site or prospectus relies heavily on photography that can tell a story quickly and show how unique and special your educational establishment is. Parents (your prospective clients) often make decisions based on first impressions when viewing online and printed material about your school. Any poorly conceived photography is going to receive a negative judgement in the first few moments of engagement. Strong and dynamic photography is going to fill parents with confidence about your school or college. Ideally, we can work together to show a balance between academic achievement, sporting activities and creative endeavours that makes your school the place where parents and their children want to be.

I have been providing photography to the educational sector across the United Kingdom and more locally throughout Cambridgeshire – including Cambridge, Peterborough and Huntingdon.

My style of photography is documentary based, unobtrusive and using available light. Once a brief is formulated for the shoot day – we can quickly, and without fuss, move through the required topics to be covered. As a creative person, I am always on the lookout for opportunities that may have been overlooked.

Please take a look through the many examples of images. Represented are primary schools, secondary schools, academys & independent schools.

Private College



“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Alan on six different occasions so far in my time at MPW. Each photo shoot that we’ve undertaken together has resulted in a great new source of imagery for my college’s many prospectuses, brochures, and marketing campaigns.

On the shoots themselves, Alan is easy-going yet still professional. He does his best to make the students and teachers at ease and he is happy to take direction if you have a specific shot in mind. Alan has all the latest equipment and kit needed for a variety of shoot conditions and you can watch your photos pop up in live time on his iPad (a real bonus in my mind). Post-shoot, Alan turns around my photos for a remarkably fast post-production process.
For all these reasons, I would happily recommend Alan should you have a need for educational photography.”
