About Us

Creating memories to last generations

The Best or Nothing

Our name says it all, we provide creative school portraits…

We are one of few businesses who offer school photos using green screen technology in Australia. Green screen is a technology used in the film industry; we have adapted it for school photography to allow you to choose the background that you prefer.

Why Schools love it…
By utilising green screen, we simplify the school photo process. We can provide Composite, Virtual or Traditional Photography, depending on your school’s requirements.

With no admin for your office staff, a streamlined digital processing system, and a heavy focus on quality, creative school portraits will revolutionise your school photo day!

By customising our product to allow a personalised image design, parents will be happy with the ease of creating the perfect portrait of their child, and we can even customise the background with your school’s image and logos.

Why parents love it…
Parents can see their child’s image before they place an order. They can choose the background that suits them from our range of over 20 backgrounds. They can choose the pack that best suits their needs and budget. 

All photographs are printed by us in-house; this allows us to continually produce the best quality prints for every order. 

We are Creative School Portraits

In short, we are a little company doing big things. We pride ourselves on our professionalism and the quality of our product. We have one goal and that is to provide you and all involved with the best school photography experience from start to finish
