Schools and Nurseries

We offer a friendly and personal service that can be tailored to your individual needs, with quality and service being very important to us specializing in School and Nursery photographs.

We are a family business offering a tailor-made service to suit you. We are not a multi-national factory offering standard packages photographed by temps, freelancers and sub-contractors. As an independent, professional school photography company based in Lancashire, you can talk direct to us. You will wherever possible have the same photographer year on year, and our office offers a friendly, personal service you just can’t beat.
