School Photography

The school photograph is a treasured staple of life.

It marks the academic journey, highlighting the steps from childhood to the edge of adult life via delicate moments in time and unforgettable haircuts. It is something to raise smiles as the years go by, and a timeless memento of life's adventure.

With over 80 years at the forefront of academic photography, we understand the importance of the humble school photo. Our team, many of whom are parents themselves, are passionate about delivering a quality service with a friendly face.

Accommodating Everyone

Our natural marriage of a cottage industry ethos with big business practicalities allows us to deliver great results no matter the size of the task. From portraits drenched in character to whole school shots featuring every character, we have the knowledge and passion to ensure your photo day is one to remember.

Cutting Admin for Schools

Our ever-evolving systems have allowed us to vastly reduce school admin. Purpose-built data linking opens the door to bulk uploads and contactless operating – saving huge amounts of time and effort for schools.

Generous Commission

Our commission packages are very competitive and promise speedy payment (within 72 hours).

Local Photographers

All our photographers are highly-trained full-time members of the Tempest team. They are also always going to be ‘local to you’. With a friendly approach and a great eye for the perfect photo, your own photographer will work with you every step of the way.

Quality Products and Choice

We have a large range of products created in-house via eco-friendly methods. From our superb £10 and under range to stylish premium products, from important mementos to personalised mugs, we can find attractive packages for all budgets.

Most of the range can be ordered online for quick and easy purchasing and we offer delivery to home addresses and schools.

The Lab

Our digital laboratory is one of Europe's largest and most technologically advanced. Paired with our rigorous standards, you can be sure that every photo will be printed and presented perfectly.
