Imagery; a powerful marketing tool.


As we all know, in recent years making a great first impression online is incredibly important for both schools and their prospective parents. Photography and videography play an important role in marketing and advertising because they tell a story. Each school is unique, and it’s hard to get this across simply using words alone.

Professional photography and videography, if done well – connects you with people and makes us imagine what it would be like to be stood in that scenario. We immediately pick up on things like school standards, how welcoming a place looks, their surroundings, and most importantly; children & students looking happy and inspired at school. It’s incredibly important for a prospective parent to look at your school website and visualise that their child could be happy there. Every school has their own values, and it’s amazing how impactful good visuals can be to show these off.

High quality images are a vital aspect to bring a school’s website to life and to communicate it’s distinctive identity.  Working with a professional photographer like Katie gave us a set of outstanding images that truly celebrate what makes our school special.

The edupic experience

From your initial contact with us to receiving the finished edits from your shoot, one of our team will be on hand to support you every step of the way.

It all starts with a preparation questionnaire – allowing you to highlight your goals and aspirations for the project, as well as planning the different areas of your school that you would like us to capture on film or camera. Setting the groundwork is key for any multimedia project, so we may also have a more detailed conversation over the phone ahead of your shoot as well.

On the day of the shoot, we’ll arrive bright and early, ready to begin filming or shooting photos at the beginning of the school day. Safeguarding is a high priority for us, so you can rest assured that all of our team are fully DBS checked, experienced professionals who have worked with many schools over the years.

We will move from lesson to lesson, providing a fast-paced yet enjoyable experience that allows us to capture as much of your school atmosphere and life as possible. Whilst some photos may need to be staged, for example science experiments or PE lessons, we will also aim to get a mix of authentic off-the-cuff images which are completely natural too, as in our experience, these look really powerful and compelling.

Once we have completed your shoot, we’ll go back to the studio and begin the editing process! For our videography projects, we’ll send you a draft of the finished footage for approval / edits. Our photography customers will receive a large selection of images which will be accessible via a secure password protected online gallery and available for use on a variety of different platforms.

We were really impressed with Katie on the photography day. It was a pleasure working with someone so professional, friendly and knowledgeable. We will definitely consider Katie for any future photography requirements for the school.
