STARTER PORTRAIT PACKAGE

F-BLOCK PORTRAITS 2021-22

A lovely way to start your sons collection of images at Eton College is to book our Starter Portrait Package. We would photograph your son for 1 hour dressed in his iconic College uniform in and around the College grounds and you will receive a rich selection of images to cherish. For F-Block starters in Michaelmas 2021 this package can be booked all during the first year up until 1st July 2022.

When is the best time to book this package for new starters in Michaelmas 2022?
College starts on the 8th September and allowing for a settling in period we would suggest the last 2 weeks of September and 1st week of October. Eton will still be dressed in its Summer green and the days will still be light.
Naturally you can book this package at anytime during the year … but if booked in the suggested period your images will be ready as Christmas gifts such as prints to insert into Christmas cards or as framed prints for family members.

FAQs

How long is the photography session?

The photography session lasts 1 hour. We will meet your son by the Porters Lodge at School Yard.

Where do you take the photographs?

The photographs will be taken in and around the College grounds. You will have a nice selection of portraits taken with the main College building & Chapel in the background and a selection of portraits taken around School Yard.

Can a brother at College also be photographed?

Yes, it is something that we do often and we find that some portraits of the siblings together at the start of the photography session works well. It is to be remembered that the session lasts for 1 hour and if you require more than a few images of the siblings together it would be perhaps best to book a double session.

When is the best time to book for starters in Michaelmas 2022?

College starts on the 8th September and allowing for a settling in period we would suggest the last 2 weeks of September and 1st week of October. Eton will still be dressed in its Summer green and the days will still be light.
Naturally you can book this package at anytime during the year, but if booked in the suggested period your images will be ready as Christmas gifts such as prints to insert into Christmas cards or as framed prints for family members.

What if it rains on the day?

We will keep an eye on the weather forecast and re-schedule if necessary. A nice benefit of booking us is that we live in Eton and we will not charge you if we must re-schedule the day.

What photography equipment do you use?

We use a mixture of natural daylight and flash photography. We use professional Nikon cameras and mobile lighting from Pro Photo.

What happens after the portraits are taken?

We will create a password protected gallery on our website for you to view your images. From this gallery you can then purchase display products such as prints, mounted frames & books.

If you are interested in creating a book you can in your gallery save favourite images for a book design - more information can be found under 'My Eton Life' in the menu.

Do you post-process the images?

Your chosen images will be put into our post production where each image will be individually colour adjusted and corrected. Skin tones will be adjusted and facial blemishes will be removed as well as uniform stains.

All our images are taken in colour and we will also convert a few into Black & White for you.

When will I receive my images?

The Starter Portrait Package is for the photography only. Display products such as prints & frames are ordered separately from your dedicated gallery. When we have received your order please allow for a 2 week delivery.

How do I book and pay?

Please contact us with the date & time for when you would like to book a portrait session and we will get back to you with our availability and book you in.

Payment is required at the time of booking and can be done by clicking on the 'Buy' button on this page. You will be taken to PayPal where you can pay with your PayPal account or with a debit or credit card from Visa, Mastercard & American Express.

Payment can also be made by bank transfer and we will send you an invoice with our bank details. We do not accept cash or cheques.
