Call the referee!
I simply asked my client to write a reference for me working as a photographer in their school and I was delighted about what they said:
“Gerry has worked as a School photographer for our school for over 12 years. The quality of Gerry’s photography has been useful in all aspects of marketing of the School both internally and externally. It has helped to showcase the School at it’s very best both inside and outside the classroom. He has particularly majored on sports photography but has covered portrait work, classroom shots, and many events within the School including Music & Drama.
Gerry’s professional approach in all aspects of his work and due regard for safeguarding have been exemplary. His ability to relate the pupils and staff has helped to truly capture life at the School.
As a School photographer, Gerry supplies a wide range of imagery, explores creativity and always turns around photos extremely promptly – I would highly recommend Gerry to other Schools – there is no doubt you will be happy with the work he produces.”
