I have over 18 years experience as a professional documentary and sports photographer working at the highest level with agencies and publications around the world. With a young family of my own, my interest and focus in recent years has turned towards children and capturing their achievements and milestones. I understand the joys and challenges of working with children but also the importance of recording memorable childhood events.
I am passionate about delivering the highest quality photographic services to parents and schools, creating beautiful images for everyone to enjoy and feel proud of for years to come. My aim is to serve the needs of schools looking for more than the average photography service provider.
Aristo Photos is a small "boutique" photography service company that can tailor our wider ranging services to meet the needs of your school.
These services include:
Beautiful modern portraits of beautiful modern children on a white back-ground.. we take as much time as we can with each child, shooting in the region of 20 photos per child to give parents a large choice of images from which to choose. We start with the classical poses and as the children warm to us we start making some more fun images which have proved to be very popular with parents and schools alike.
CLASS & TEAM PHOTOS
Attention to detail is the hallmark of our class and team photos providing a lovely record of wonderful memories of your childrens' classmates and team mates.
sports days & swimming galas
As an accredited Olympic and Paralympic photographer with 6 "games" worth of experience including Athens in 2004, Beijing in 2008 and Sochi in 2014, I can guarantee you the most professional photographic coverage of your schools sports days and swimming galas.
Stills and video coverage of your schools theatrical and music productions. We normally attend dress rehearsal to capture the mood of the show and from which we produce a huge 45x30 inch show poster in time for opening night... then on opening night we shoot stills and attend again on the second night (if you have one) to record the production on video.. we do it this way firstly so the children are well practiced by the time we shoot the video and secondly so that the photographers don't disturb the videographers and vice versa.
school photography for web & prospectus
My experience in the world of editorial and corporate photography means the images I can produce for you with my team will help your school stand out.
The first impressions most parents will get of your school come from your school prospectus and website. They make up a most essential part of your marketing strategy giving prospective parents an insight into everyday life at your school.
The images we can make for you will show the balances you wish to reflect between work, play and learning and the life ethos you wish to instill in your students.
