Talent you can trust

JS School Photography began in the early 90s, when Jane Stapleton started working as a nursery photographer in Derby, Nottingham and Leicester. Jane sold the business in 2005 and, since then, we’ve built a 30-strong team of photographers, printers, production operators, and sales and service colleagues, providing professional school portraits with a process that’s seamless and stress-free.

With more than 30 years’ experience taking individual portraits and group photos in school settings, we really understand exactly what you’re looking for from your school photographer and the images they produce. That’s because we start by getting to know you, your school and your photography challenges so we can work together to make your life easier. With that, school photography day will run smoothly and you’ll receive great-value images parents will take pride in.

Your life made easier

We’re a growing team. Yet we’ve never lost the personal touch that schools, nurseries and colleges across the UK value so highly. Whenever we can, we’ll ask the same photographer to return to your school year on year. But you’ll build great relationships with everyone you speak to at JSSP, and feel confident chatting with any one of them about how they can help you.

As well as school portrait images and added extras, such as mugs and leavers’ books, we provide drone photography and school video tours. Like our photos, everything is processed by our team in our studio to boost your brochures and promote your prospectuses. In fact, we take care of everything – from school photo production to data protection – at our newly renovated premises in Derbyshire. Nothing is ever outsourced or white-labelled to give you complete security, both in the quality of what we do and the safeguarding of the images we process.

We’ve built a great network of school business managers and office teams who trust us time and again to look after their school photography. Take a look at our case studies and see why they want to say thank you for the work we do.
