School photography

I offer full service photography solution for your school.

Individual & Sibling Portraits

I offer two variations of the traditional portrait, with your choice of background.

Each child will have two different styles of photograph taken — a traditional pose and a more contemporary angled, cropped shot.

My equipment

I use powerful lights or strobes with softboxes, stands, large backdrops or portable backdrops depends on demand. My equipment has possibility to run on batteries if needed. I shoot with the latest Sony cameras and prime lenses from Sigma.

Pictures delivery & payment

You or parents can decide, what is the best way to deliver the pictures . By post or to the school. And also how parents will pay for them – when parents don´t want to pay on my website by card, I have no problem with cash solution.

My personal approach

Everything I wrote here is the most common approach, but universal rule how to do it doesn´t exist. I would like to do it to suit everybody – children, school and parents.

Traditional group

These timeless classics are still one of most popular products. Many parents will purchase these group photos each year to chart their children’s school years.

The traditional group photo is ideal for both class groups and teams. It can be taken inside or out and I will take time to compose the perfect group, making sure each child can be seen.

I can also set up a studio.

Web/fb content creation

When you invite me to your school, I will take pictures whatever you want. Most popular are moody pictures during children´s plays and school activities, where are children in move and ideally during the sunny day.

I promise, I´ll find the right moment, which represents the mood in your school. In pictures, that tells the story.

Imagine a group of happy kids running in the warm colored morning sun, kids enjoying their meal, playing football or smile during kids play.

The result is beautiful and you will have awesome picture for your promotion.

Tom The Sneem Photographer came to Scoil Mhichíl to take photos of our wonderful pupils. Tom and Kamila are very organised. Informative letters and consent forms were arranged by them for parents. The only task I had as a school secretary was to send out the information by email to our families. On the day of the photoshoot Tom arrived punctually. He was set up in no time and without any interruption to the school day. Tom has a fabulous personality. He is calm and kind and gave time to greet each child individually as they came forward for their photographs. It was a busy morning for Tom but one he mastered to perfection. After 3 days Tom promptly contacted our families and they have now received their digital prints and are very happy with the photographs. If you are planning on engaging with a photographer for your school portraits we would highly recommend Tom The Sneem Photographer.
Maith thú Tom.

How does it works?

First of all we should meet together. Best way, as I am busy, is contacting me via email. I will answer you in 24 hours and we can plan the meeting in your school. There we can discuss how could I help you and when we can do it. I have my camera always with me, so I can take some kinds of pictures straight away.
