Affordable School Photography

Imagine a home that has no photographs of their children -we know how important  photographs are to families, school photographs are a treasured record of their children's lives.

This was what inspired us to create our $10 school photograph package. 

We don’t want any child not to have their photographs displayed around their home, or for families not to have a record of their child’s time at school.  

So, we looked at how we could offer an affordable  package for families and decided that $10 sounded pretty good. 

 With affordable options available for parents to add names, laminate etc if they wish to themselves, we reckon we were onto something pretty special, low cost and great quality. We trialled it and found it was exactly what families wanted. 

Here's how it works :

  • We provide an online ordering platform OR an envelope is provided for each student to take home 
  • Each student receives one 18x13cm class and individual photograph for $10.
  • Additional orders plus digital files can be ordered online also.
  • Sibling( at the same school) photographs can be taken, each student must order a $10 package for this happen.
  • Photographs are delivered to the school, sorted into classes for handing out 3-4 weeks after photo day.
  • Staff and school copies provided free of charge, as well we take a leavers casual group photo for each of your seniors, completely free .
  • We like to work outside in your school grounds where possible.
  • While our school packages are designed so no one misses out, we  can provide portrait packages and named group photographs if preferred. This package is $22. Please enquire.

The feedback we receive from families not worrying about having to find the money or saying to their kids, "sorry not this year", has been heartening. 

And from the schools :

“ We were going to cancel our school photographs because our orders were so low”
“ Our families are so happy to be able to have their children’s school photographs taken each year and be able to afford it “

"Our school began using Shayne for our school photography in 2019. Shayne made the process incredibly simple with a well thought out ordering process, photos that were naturally posed and reflected the personalities of our tamariki for a fair an extremely economical price. My community loved the photos, and appreciated the significant savings. Shayne was incredibly easy to work with, and was a joy to have in our school. I would thoroughly recommend Shayne for any school looking to change their photography provider. "

Encouraging creativity in our young people, has long been a part of giving back to our community. 

Foto iwi is a not for profit charitable trust based  in Hawkes Bay , established to  encourage and support  NZs young creatives through digital media.

We believe that by supporting our young people to explore their creativity they can be empowered to find their voice and share their stories in new ways.
 We have found our workshops  can be the very  first time that our youth can feel empowered confident and reassured in their ability to feel inspired and to through this, inspire others .

We also know that  parents and schools budgets are stretched so as a charitable trust Foto iwi applies for funding so we can encourage and support a small group of youth from your school.
Our workshops are flexible and we have a range of creative programmes that can also be beneficial to your school. 
We like to fit the students ideas with schools days.  Some schools may offer our programme after school or during lunchtime some choose to make it part of their curriculum.

Our programme also includes an exhibition for the students to share their work with their peers and community, another positive way to further encourage each student. 

If you or your students would be keen then we are happy to keep talking to make this happen.  Check out the website.
We believe in Foto iwi and our young creatives , we hope you feel the same.

PS Our dream is that the youth of small town NZ can have the same opportunities as our big city teens so Foto iwi travels to you and provides all the equipment . If this is you, we would love to connect.
