Are your clients asking you for large group photographs? We have the perfect solution for you!!
Our staging consists of a strong framework and non-slip steps, as well as back and side safety rails. Unlike some systems available, our staging was purpose
built for group photography, as opposed to being converted scaffolding or similar - it will inspire client confidence the moment they see it! We are happy to
set up either outdoors on any flat area, or inside if you prefer.
The staging is sectional, and as a guide five sections has the capacity for approximately 220 adults/250 year 11 school children/270 primary school children.
For anything up to this amount of staging, we charge £350 per day plus the travel costs incurred (fuel, road tolls, parking etc. This is at cost, NOT per mile!)
This fee includes:
Construction on site
As many different group photographs in the day as you want
Arrangement of all the subjects to ensure both a good composition as well as everyones safety
Photography so you wont have to bring any additional photographers. Images are taken in RAW and JPEG formats on your CF or SD memory card
Powerful flash lighting if you have an indoor photo
Dismantling everything afterwards
We even supply our own seating - which is guaranteed to keep any school caretaker happy!
Multiple location shoots are possible on one day, dependent on timings and distance between venues. We charge an additional 50% per build.
Got a group that's even larger?
We can also help with larger capacity groups as we have ten sections of staging in total. This means we can accomodate groups of up to
a maximum of approx. 440 adults, or 550 children dependent on their age/size. Please ask us for advice, but as a guide, work on one section per 40-50
people dependent on their size.
6 sections £475 plus travel
7 or 8 sections £575 plus travel
9 or 10 sections £700 plus travel
Please be aware that for these larger builds, we do ask that you supply us with additional help to build and dismantle the staging.
Our Group Photography Staging Hire is very popular with school and graduation photographers who cannot justify the expense of purchasing
their own staging, or simply do not want the logistics of storage or transportation.

Some frequently asked questions
The first question we are always asked is "Would you go to .....?" The image above shows the staging set up and ready for
use at an international school in Switzerland. So wherever your group photo is, YES, we will go there!!! However, please be aware that if your photo
is more than 200 miles from our base in Kings Lynn, or has a really early start time, then we may need to add a hotel room to our travel costs.
Another often asked question is, "The school is bigger than what your staging holds, can you help?" Whilst we always prefer to shoot
groups as one single image, it is possible to take two, three, or even four photos, which are then stitched together in Photoshop.
Please have a look at our editing options, and if you are interested please ask for more details.
Are your staff DBS checked? Yes, we bring our certification with us on the day
We are proud to be accredited members of the SchoolPhotoPro, the Association for School and Preschool Photographers.
This means the standard of our large school group photographs have been independently assessed and we are
recommended suppliers to anyone looking for staging hire or help with their large group photography.
