Forest School Photography Tips: Tips for school photography and how to get amazing forest school photos

If you’re reading this, you probably already know that forest schools are awesome and we love capturing them on our school photography visits. School photography is important to showcase life in school.

Forest school is a popular method of learning outdoors and it’s been on the rise in recent years. But capturing your forest school can be tricky with different lighting and activities. Don’t worry—we can help!

Top tips for forest school photography

  1. In our previous blog, we explored how the weather plays a part in your school photography day. The best part of forest school is being out in the open and in nature, we love it and the children love it too! Even if it’s raining, we will capture your school’s forest school!
  2. We would recommend having a range of activities ready for the session. Activities such as fire starting, den building, tree identification, and bug hunting are perfect for the school photo shoot.
  3. When photographing the forest school session, ensure that you have a clean and clear area. You need to ensure that rubbish is cleared and the area looks tidy.
  4. Allow for slightly longer timing for the forest school session within the school photo day. Forest school activities are engaging and fun so it’s great to spend a little more time capturing the many activities.
