Do you run a school and you’re looking for a way to make photo days more organised? Perhaps you’re a teacher and you’ve been given the task of hiring a photographer to take secondary school photos for an upcoming sports event?

Taking high school photos should be trusted to a professional who understands how to get the best moments in ink. You need a photographer that has years of experience, the credibility of a company well established within your community. You need Arthur Reed Photography.

Established in 1960, Arthur Reed was working in secondary school photography before these photos were even printed in colour! In fact, Arthur was the very first school photographer to offer his prints in full colour, and the innovation has never stopped. Now a second-generation family-owned business; ARP is proud of a long history of cutting-edge excellence. With our amazing parent ordering platform, we are the right choice for your school, your kids and your parents.

Arthur Reed has always pushed the envelope to bring you the very best options for your school. We offer images in the following styles:

Personalised Notebooks

Personalised Sticker Sheets

Group Photos

High resolution digital copy for download

Family packs for sibling shoots including portraits and calendar

Parents can choose from a range of packages to include some, or all, of the above and will only pay for photos once they have approved them. This reduces school’s administrative duties and avoids the hassle of dealing with parent enquiries as it can all be done online. Each parent will receive a unique code that will give them access to only their child’s pictures, ready for them to approve and order the package of their choosing.

Well, other than our long track record of trustworthy operation, ARP is so confident in our work, we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. We are never out of reach and can be contacted online, or over the phone, for outstanding, family-owned, service.

More than that, you’ll have your own dedicated contact point in your client manager, who will answer any and all questions you might have. Our clever software produces digital student directories to easily identify students’ photos and your images will be directly uploaded to our portal, which makes it extra easy to use these in your databases or for other school business.

There are lots of additional services we can provide, like ID cards and medical alerts, so use our handy web form to make an enquiry today, to see how we can fulfil your photography needs.

The time it takes for school photos to arrive can vary depending on the photography company, school policies, and the specific ordering process. At Arthur Reed Photos, we have an average 3 week turn around for our photography process. Our ordering process allows parents can order at their leisure, viewing images before payment, and can re-order photos at any time.

High School photos are typically not suitable for use as passport photos. Passport photo requirements are quite strict, including specific dimensions, background colour, facial expression, and lighting. School photos are often taken in a different style and might not meet the necessary criteria for passport photos. It’s advisable to have passport photos taken at an official passport photo service or a professional photography studio to ensure compliance with passport photo regulations.

The finish of school pictures can vary based on the photography company’s practices and the preferences of the school. At Arthur Reed we offer you the option of a Matte or Gloss finish. Within our ordering portal, you will have many options to customise your secondary School photos.  Talk to our team about how we can customise your experience
