Large Groups

We’ve taken over 25,500 large group photographs over the past 20 years. So you can be confident you're in safe hands when it comes to your whole school and large year group photos.

Our specialist photographers are experts at capturing large group images. They understand how to manage the process, including the vital importance of health and safety.

We'll bring along our own specially manufactured aluminium staging, making it safe and simple to capture images of up to 1200 people in one sitting (plus, digital wizardry in the lab will allow us to go even larger).

You’ll also receive a free copy of each group image to display in your school

Purpose built staging

We’ll bring along our own, specially constructed, aluminium staging that’s fully compliant with the latest health and safety regulations.


Designed exclusively for Tempest, to provide the safest and most efficient solution for taking large numbers of staff and students in a single photograph, the staging is inspected regularly by an independent structural engineer and comes with our comprehensive liability insurance. Weight is distributed evenly over a wide area to protect playing fields and artificial surfaces, whether inside or outdoors and there are solid tread fronts for added peace-of-mind.
