Using a white background and the latest digital technology Go West Schools provide a modern and fresh approach to school portraiture, posing the children in informal single, group (friends) or sibling shots producing original images with the children looking relaxed and enjoying the day with their friends.

Class photographs can be created from groups posing in ‘fun’ styles or if preferred in the more traditional style. This variety gives all parents a choice of poses, print sizes and quantities from which to make their selection.

In addition we offer complimentary photographs of all the staff printed to your requested size and take informal shots around the school for promotional use free of charge.


We have been making some changes to our way of operating which has a number of positive benefits for your school and your parents.  Since January 2020 we have been working with our friends Olivia and Stuart at Active Photographic who are providing expertise in cutting edge software, photography, administration and much more.  They are an established School Photography Company with many years’ experience in the industry and support a number of other Photographers in this way.  The Pandemic has given us all the opportunity to review how we operate and enable us to make positive changes for the future.
