School - St Crispin's Infant School
Location - Westgate-on-Sea, Kent
Company - The School Print Company
I have been working with The School Print Company on a shoot for St Crispin's School in Westgate-on-Sea to provide a selection of images for their new prospectus.
I arrived at the school for 9.15am and was greeted by the Head Mistress, Mrs Denise Ellinor. I was required to get a mixture of shots over 3-4 hours of the school buildings, the teachers but mainly the children going about their day to day lives at the school.
During the course of the morning, I got to meet all the teachers and students whilst visiting each classroom and photographing them in action. From reading and writing, to painting, computing and P.E classes.
I also was lucky enough to photograph lunch hour, both indoors in the canteen area and outside with the children playing in the playground and on the equipment.
The students at the school were aged between 4-7 and were extremely happy and excited children. They loved to have their photo taken and were sometimes following me around just to jump out in-front of the camera but I think this helped me to get some really great, natural shots of the children as well as the usual ones of them working and studying.
Many thanks for St Crispin's and their staff and students for making me feel so welcome and i'm looking forward to working alongside The School Print Company again soon on another school project.
