Halls & Departments

We provide group photographs for colleges, departments and halls of residence all over the UK with clients including Oxford, Durham, Birmingham, Sheffield, Reading, Nottingham, Roehampton and many more.

We will visit your college, department or hall to take the photograph on a pre-arranged date and time, for which there is no attendance fee. We can also supply professional staging to set up the photo.

All our photographers have a minimum 5 years experience in setting up group photos, resulting in great photos taken in the minimum amount of time.

Our aim is to provide the most hassle-free service for the organiser. We take care of all the order-taking on the same day and aim to deliver the entire job within two weeks.

Our high quality photos (printed by a dedicated professional lab) are mounted on sturdy board (with crest, college, hall or departmental details and student names) which gives a durable and lasting quality unlike some of the cheaper alternatives available. The size can be varied depending on your requirements and size/layout of the group.

For more information, prices, or to book Penguin Photography, please contact Karoki or Mark.

Thanks for doing such a great job with the Freshers Photo this year, the picture looks absolutely fantastic and I think the new students are all really pleased with it.

Mark and his team are friendly and approachable and totally reliable. They turn up when they say they will, provide a great service and do a great job. The goods are always delivered on time and packaged efficiently for ease of distribution. What is more, the cost is great. Mark is organised and calm in approach on the evening and relates well to our students when marshalling them through for their individual and group photographs. The end products are of a high quality and make a splendid and lasting memento. Why would we go elsewhere?

Just to let you know that the photographs arrived safely today and look great. We were extremely impressed with the service offered by Penguin Photography and are sure that the students will be very pleased with their Class 2012 photograph.

Penguin photography has been the photography service of choice for Sheffield University's German Department for the past few years and has produced quick, excellent and extremely pleasing results every time. I'm sure that the Year Group photographs will be looked at with fond memories by students for many years to come and we are all very thankful for such wonderful service.
