I was hired for a recent assignment by TeachFirst an education based charity whose aim is to end educational inequality. Meeting up with one of their brand and marketing officers at a local Norfolk Academy to produce the required photographs we spent about an hour and a half completing the editorial photography assignment.
My brief was to supply images of a local teacher at an Academy School both individually as several different styled portraits that could be utilised by the charity’s design department, and in his day to day work teaching one of his classes. The images were to be used in the Charity’s upcoming annual report and review as editorial images and as stock images that could be called upon for illustrative purposes, showing children learning, a teacher teaching etc. The images can and will no doubt also be used by the School concerned for such things as their own school prospectus brochures and websites.
It’s my second such assignment with a local Academy High School and it’s always great not only to take photographs for such assignments but also from a matter of human interest to see how schools are run and work. Professionalism seems to be key to modern schools and it’s great to see and I was again not only impressed by the teaching staff but also the attitude of the pupils.
This was an assignment that took place on a Friday morning and I’m glad to say that the images for the annual report and review were delivered by way of an image download to the client first thing on Monday morning.
