ACADEMY SCHOOL WEBSITE PHOTOGRAPHY – THE CHELSEA ACADEMY
My photography for the Chelsea Academy school website was a mix of natural and ‘must have’ images. Specifically, students learning in their natural environment and key photographs for the website homepage. In addition, I created poster size photographs of a range of students to be displayed around the school.
- Create key images for the website hompage.
- Cover a wide range of subjects and learning styles.
- Create A1 potraits and collaborate with Lee Mason Graphic Design to produce poster prints.
- Collaborate with Creative Schools website design on image size and format.
- Document the striking architecture of the school building with and without students.
Together with Jeni Cousans, School Business Manager, I planned two full days to cover all the image requirements. This ranged from identifying a group of students for the posters, to gaining access to the school roof.
In addition, we created a realistic schedule to move swiftly around the large site.
The first image I shot was the one of the atrium below. It is a key image in the site design. Also, it had to be done before students and staff arrived as it a large and high traffic area.
With so much to cover, Jeni proved vital. She guided me round the school all da. In addition, whilst I was shooting one faculty, she was ensuring the next was ready.
ACADEMY SCHOOL WEBSITE PHOTOGRAPHY – WEBSITE & PRINT
The Chelsea Academy has a more corporate feel than some schools but is no less inclusive or welcoming because of it. It’s a large modern building with expansive indoor and outdoor spaces. My photographs illustrate that sense of space and order both online and in the feature posters around the school.
