Phototheme is committed to giving your school the very best service, as well as the very best photographs, that parents will treasure for years to come.

We offer unique and flexible service that benefits the school and parents.
Any combination of photographs and sizes can be ordered with great discounts and savings.

Parents can even build their own pack using all of the images we give them of their children, including their sibling images.


All of this flexibility is available for the same price or less than other leading shcool photographers.

Individual Portraits
We don't just give you one proof of each child.
We offer a choice to your parents.
They can choose which photo they prefer, or even better buy all of them. Using our "order what you want" service, your customers get good value products.

You choose the background that suits your parents.
Either a traditional mottled background or the very fashionable white (high key), giving studio portraits at a fraction of the price paid in high-street studios.


Proofing on the Day
Using modern techniques connecting cameras to computers and printers photographs can be taken quickly, with more choice for parents and less administration for the school.

Proofing on the day is a great time saver for the school because the pupils collect their proofs as their photographs are taken.  This significantly reduces administration to the school which can be further reduced by offering parents an online only (or post to us) service. Prints are returned directly to the parents home. Or can be sent to the school in one shipment at the end of the ordering deadline.

Group Photographs
Our class group photos are a little different. We place the school name, logo, class name and year in a window at the bottom of the mount. Photos can be taken either inside or outside, depending on taste and of course the weather.

Family Days
Earn extra money for your school. Great photos, great prices, great commission
