Braiswick Photographic has been a pioneer in the school photography industry since the sixties, we can now announce we are one of the first school photographers to become carbon neutral.
We recognise the impact climate change is having across the world currently and the risks of further damage being done. As a company we have a responsibility to ensure our own emissions are not just offset but reduced, which is why we are committed to reducing our CO2 emissions by 20% over the next 12 months.
“We are proudly one of the first school photographers to become carbon neutral. As a company working with educational partners, we recognise the affect that climate change will have on coming generations and pledge to do our best to reduce the impact we have on this.”– Debbie Crees, Managing Director
"We are delighted to partner with Braiswick Photographic Co Ltd to help identify and offset their environmental impact for 2023 and beyond."– James Poynter, Director - Carbon Neutral Britain
Braiswick Photographic, established in 1965, is a nationwide, family run company with two regional offices specialising in all aspects of school photography from pre-school groups to sixth form colleges.
Having decades of experience within school photography, our team is committed to providing outstanding customer service. This ensures that we control every step of the process in house; from the moment we take your pictures, through to editing, printing and finally packing your prints. The end result is fantastic photos delivered to you with minimum involvement for the school and great value for the parents.
With your help we have been raising money for Cancer Research UK since 2015. In 2021 we reached our goal of £350,000. Due to the success of this we have increased our target and with your continued support we are looking to raise £500,000 for this incredible charity. For every order of our Anniversary pack received, we donate 50p to this worthwhile cause.
We are continually experimenting with new and existing photographic techniques and styles, allowing us to offer you a fully comprehensive choice of packs. Whether you need individual photographs or a photograph of the entire school we can offer you the service and pack that best expresses your school.
Unlike other school photography services, we will send a member of our own staff to collect order envelopes rather than a courier. This ensures that we know exactly where your orders are at all times and guarantees a speedy arrival to our office for the fulfilment of orders. No more sorting, packaging up for a courier or taking a trip to the post office.
Update your schools system with current photographs of your students with ease. Our dedicated software will automatically attach each student photograph as it is being taken to their record. We can support all database systems and in most cases you will be able to load the information into your system on the same day of take! Furthermore, for those of you using SIMS, we are a Capita accredited company, meaning we can apply for auto import licences on your behalf, saving you money and time.
We value feedback from our customers, which is why every school that fills out one of our Customer Satisfaction Surveys will be entered into a prize draw to win a £300 Amazon Voucher. Good luck and we look forward to hearing from you.
Our dedicated customer service team will provide support for both you and your parents ensuring smooth resolutions to any enquiries received.
