High Quality Photos for your School

We tailor our photo services to each Schools needs and requirements. From School individual portraits through to photos of prom nights and other special school days and events we can provide our services throughout the School year.

We do like to offer something a little different as well especially when it comes to School portraits and our in class photos and Summer outdoor portraits are in particular very popular as they place each child in their everyday environment. We do however also offer the more traditional plain background portraits options if requested.

Key advantages of using our photography services

1. Greater Variety of photo styles including our popular Classroom and Summer / Autumn outdoor portraits
2. Increased choice for parents via online ordering – has led to higher take up rates and an increase in sales
3. No need to stop using your current provider as our services are flexible and are available throughout the School year.
4. We only use continuous and natural lighting for the photos we take – no flash units used

Firstly we would like to explain that our services are very flexible and aim to enhance what you currently offer to your pupils and parents. We are not expecting you to change your current photography provider unless you wish to do so in order to use any of our services.

Variety and Flexibility
Our aim is to provide the best School photography service available and this includes offering variety and flexible services in what is a fairly traditional School photography market. From our special Classroom portraits of each child taken within their actual classroom to Outdoor Summer portraits we have really thought about trying to offer images that really capture each Childs special time at School and the unique environment they spend it in.

We do of course offer the more traditional studio style portraits if required but we take great care in this area too by not using any disturbing flash units which tend to startle many children. We only use continuous lighting or natural light for the photos we take.

Personalised Layouts and Prints
In addition we also offer a variety of print services including personalised layouts as well as our popular personalised named prints which add children’s names, dates and the School name to the photo print. We aim to provide a friendly, professional, flexible and reliable service which we hope you may find of interest and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have interested in discussing any requirements with us.

Additional +10% on all Sales Commission
If you are interested in using our services over the coming year then please get in touch as soon as possible quoting ‘School2015’ and we will be happy to offer you an additional 10% of Sales commission above and beyond our usual rate. It’s our way of saying thank you for allowing us to be a small part of your School and provide our services to you and the Children and parents at your School.

HD Video Recording and / or photos
of School Shows and Performances

NQ Media offers a number of services including taking photos only, video recording only or a combination of photos and video depending on requirements. We have found the combination of still photos and video recording to be the most beneficial for raising additional funds for a School or its PTA.

One of our most popular services is providing Schools with our video recording and DVD creation service. We will happily come into your School and record in HD either a dress rehearsal or a live performance and then create a unique DVD or Digital File if preferred that can then be ordered and sold to parents.

NQ Media also offer the option to take images of the children involved in the School play or performance in groups, individually and in action ie during the show itself. These images can then be ordered and sold from our sister site. nqphotography.zenfolio.com website which is password protected creating special keepsakes for parents and offering additional revenue streams for the School.

We can tailor any of these services specifically for your School.


  • 'As a school we have been hugely impressed with the photography and video services provided by NQ Photography / NQ Media.

Photo and Video Services for Charities

NQ Media also provides all of its services to Charities and other organisations.

We have recently worked with the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust in providing
this video for their Successful Skylark campaign:


  • I just thought I would let you know the good news that we’ve just reached the £50,000 for the Skylarks Appeal This was much earlier than anticipated and this success was helped along tremendously by your video/photos of the land – we played the video at many of our key events over recent months and it always got a great reception. Thanks to additional funding from grants, and the early success of the initial public fundraising, this isn’t actually the end of the Skylarks Appeal – we’re now extending our aims to raise enough money to be able to transform/improve the new reserve J So thanks once again for your assistance.
