Schools Photography

There are some that would confuse School and Event photography and place them together but experienced photographers will tell you that each has its own special requirements.


SchoolPhotoPRO is a unique organisation for independent school photographers that is run by Kevin Cheesman, an independent professional school photographer with over 25 years in the business. SPP has a rapidly growing membership of dedicated, school and pre-school photographers who run their own small businesses. Our membership is very broad. As well as from the UK, we have members from Ireland, Scotland, Canada, America, New Zealand, Australia and Sweden.

SchoolPhotoPRO was started as Kevin felt the whole business of school photography was still just too isolated. "When I started my business 25 years ago there was nowhere to get advice about the business - you just had to learn by your, sometimes, expensive mistakes and go with gut instinct, but now that there is SchoolPhotoPRO. The organisation is there to support and promote independent school photographers and raise the standards in our industry.

Our forum is extremely active and is perfect for bouncing ideas about, share tips & experiences and keep up-to-date with all the latest developments in the market. Members are experienced in many of different fields, so when you put all this knowledge and experience together into one easily accessible place, you get an organisation forum that is really helpful in our unique line of photography." Just by word of mouth, SPP membership has reached nearly 300 in just 20 months and has also featured in professional photography magazines.
