Looking for a photographer for your school photos?

Do you run a school in Melbourne? Are you looking for way to streamline taking school photos? Perhaps you’re a teacher and you’ve been given the job of finding a photographer for the end of year photos? If so, we’d love to hear from you. Welcome to Arthur Reed Photos; we perfect the art of photo day at schools all across Melbourne, from primary to secondary school photos.

There aren’t many school photographers that can boast a lineage going all the way back to 1960, but Arthur Reed can! Family owned and operated right here in Australia; the Reed family have been one of the leading school photography providers that Melbourne has to offer. Now operating in several regions, ARP is proud to be regarded amongst the most innovate of school portrait companies in the country and now take school photos in Victoria, Geelong and surrounding areas!

Have you ever tried to orchestrate a whole school photo? If you have, we applaud you. It’s a logistical nightmare that is rarely even possible. Disruptive to classes and a recipe for disaster, it’s just too difficult to control a large group of children in the time you have, never mind finding a space large enough!

In practice, many schools never get that whole school photo memory, settling instead for smaller class or group shots. ARP is here with the latest technology to change that for your school.

Using cutting edge green-screen technology, our photographers take individual portraits of each student and staff member. What this allows is a seamless experience with minimal interruptions to your class schedule!

Next, we take a photo of the area of your grounds or school building that you would like to serve as the backdrop to your picture.

From here, our amazing editors compile all the images into one large school photo; it literally couldn’t be easier for you. We’ll even send a proof to you for notes and adjustments before sending the hard copies in specially designed packaging for damage-free transit. We can also process the pictures into school diaries or school planners for you to purchase.

The best bit? You won’t even have to label the students yourself; our nifty software writes these on the back of every print, in order of appearance. All this so you can get on with what you’re meant to be doing – running your school!

All you have to do to enjoy a stress-free school group photo is get in touch, and we will do literally everything else. Visit our site to read testimonies from other schools that have switched to ARP and are now enjoying hassle-free picture days.
