Swim School Photo Shoots
Creating amazing images of your pupils learning to swim, for your families and your business.
About Our Photo Shoots
The Starfish Photo Shoots include above the water photography, underwater photography, costume shots underwater, siblings and parent and child underwater.
We usually take up to 4 children per 1/2 hr and ask that all babies and children attending, are confident in underwater submersions, and have practiced opening their eyes underwater and facial expressions. We use high quality equipment, and super fast underwater strobes which means we can capture up to 6 frames per second! We always carry two of everything to the photo shoots (including cameras!) to make sure everything runs smoothly. We set up an underwater studio in your pool with a blue background, backlighting and use a top of the range SLR camera in custom made underwater housing for the highest quality results.
The Starfish photo shoot costs £30 per child to attend and photographs can be viewed online and purchased at an extra cost. The booking fee is used to cover the cost of photo shoot, and payment to your swim school. Your swim school would take the booking fee, and we attend free of charge. (minimum of 20 children booked on)

Bookings and Delivery
The photo shoot can be tailored to meet the needs of your swim school so let us know if you would like to do things a little differently. We can take bookings online with our automated booking system. If we take the bookings, there is an admin fee of £2.50 per booking. This covers the Paypal/Stripe fees we incur.
The booking fee should be paid at the time of booking, and the fee is non refundable. When customers book through the Starfish Website they are asked to confirm the child’s is confident with underwater submersions, the child’s name and age and any health conditions. If you take the bookings you would need to supply us with this information before the photo shoot. We also ask participants to read and agree to our terms and conditions: Terms and Conditions – Starfish Underwater Photography
After the photo shoot the pictures are edited and uploaded to a personal password protected web gallery for parents to view and buy. The parents then buy directly from the Starfish website. http://www.starfish.photography
