New School Website Photography for Lingfield College

I was excited when Lingfield College in Surrey approached me to update their School Website Photography. I adore photographing Schools and Colleges – it’s the perfect way to combine my love of children’s photography with my commercial photography.

I worked closely with the Marketing Department to plan the photoshoot around the school timetable, fitting in as many different classes and activities as possible.

I was booked for a two day shoot and here are some of my favourite images from day one. We started the shoot in the Pre-School – the younger children are always so excited about having their pictures taken and literally line up for their turn! The magnifying glasses and bugs provided much amusement for us all.

We went out to the playground at break time and I was able to get lot of natural shots of the children playing and interacting with their friends and teachers.

We then headed over to the Sixth Form Centre to photograph the Sixth Formers. The red seats in the lecture theatre provided the perfect backdrop for photos.

I photographed a selection of sixth formers during a variety of activities. I find that older students like to be pre-warned about photos – if they are prepared and have a chance to ‘freshen up’ they tend to be more willing participants.

The Science Lab provided the perfect opportunity for some more creative shots and a bit of flame throwing!
