About Us

Our photographer, Peter Barnett, has taught for 30 years in secondary and primary schools.  He taught chemistry at secondary level and was a primary headteacher for 12 years.

He began photographing children, in classrooms, 15 years ago as a marketing tool for his schools.  For the past 6 years he has developed the photography to include large wall displays, prospectuses and website images.

He works with a very experienced graphic designer to produce bespoke school prospectuses.

With his wide sIMG_3090-2chool experience, he is able to work his way around classrooms capturing images which reflect the essence of the school .

Peter has an enhanced DBS Certificate.

May we recommend the Gallery to give you a good overview of the work?

What We Do

We capture the essence of your school in stunning images of the children at work and play.  The photos can be used for new prospectus, wall displays or throughout your website.

The Focus team will use high quality fittings to secure the photos of your choice to walls and create attractive displays throughout the school.  Feedback from parents and staff is always very positive, leading to an inclusive feel to the environment.

We work with a very experienced graphic designer to build bespoke prospectuses to exactly match your brief.

We always meet with the Headteacher or representative to gain an insight into the school and what aspects we need to highlight with the photography.

A school photoshoot takes one and a half days.  We begin as the children arrive in school and finish as the children go home.  We include after school clubs and lunchtime activities.

After the first full day’s photoshoot, we upload approximately 150 draft images to the school.  We have usually captured around 70% of what is required and the school will then advise on areas which need to be covered on the second half day visit.

After the second photoshoot, we upload a further 40+ images.  The school then makes their choice of 50 images.

We then digitally enhance the images (correcting exposure, removing unwanted items etc) to ensure that the final 50 images are of excellent quality.  They are then uploaded to the school.

Cost:

A full photo-shoot at a primary school (one and a half days) costs £500 for 50 images.

A full secondary school photo-shoot (2 full days) costs £600 for 50 images.

Wall Displays

We produce wall displays to fit a wide variety of needs in schools.

The range includes:-

  • Foamex photo boards along corridors, which are relatively inexpensive.
  • Acrylic collages which give the top of range, professional look. These work very well in the entrance foyers.
  • Very large outside display boards on di-bond.  Often we fit these on outside walls, approaching the school office.

We can produce any bespoke design and format to meet your needs.

Some schools prefer a simple folder with a pocket for their own paperwork, which is more economical.

Testimonials

  • Barry Yeardsley; HT Lyndon Green Infant School, Birmingham

    It has been great to work with a company which really  understands schools and children.  Their innovative ideas have helped present our school in such a bright and positive way.

  • Elaine Maher, HT Reedswood Primary School, Walsall

    We have used Peter’s services for 3 years now, he has had repeat bookings because the quality of his photography is wonderful.  I think, because he was a teacher for many years, he relates well to the children and knows how to capture them at their best!  He knows which activities to photograph to show them engaged with their learning.  We just book his visits and he does the rest.  All I need to do is choose the final product.  Peter has helped us with wall displays, 2 prospectuses and lots of internal wall displays.
