Every image is precious and none is more important than a beautiful portrait image. Our photographers are trained in the art of capturing a student’s personality and ensuring that the essence of every student is reflected in their school portrait. Our goal is to deliver a classic, timeless portrait that will be treasured forever.
GROUP PHOTOS AND GROUP PACKAGE OPTIONS
Capturing a classic group photo that is balanced and well formatted takes experience and training. For more than 30 years our group photographers have made classic large group photography into an art form. To capture that special image, whether it's a group of 20 or a whole school photo of 1200+, there's no one more experienced than an advancedlife group photographer. Of course capturing the image is only half the job and, once we've captured images of the highest quality, we print them in our own state of the art lab, in your school’s choice of package format using the most advanced processes available.
