The photos that reflect some very important years
Making Memories Last

AJTaylor Images strives to make the best quality images possible and that is reflected in the many tens of thousands of photos taking in and around the region of Bendigo. We have serviced numerous schools, businesses, organisations and editorial agencies. We will always go out of our way to make it easy for you to arrange a photographer and we will be very transparent about what we offer.

The photo Packs

 

  • We make it easy for parents to choice which photo pack they want by only offering 5* variations with simple to understand descriptions and visuals.
  • Digital photos are in demand and we make it easily affordable for parents with our A pack option (Our best value and most in demand pack). With the A pack they will get all the photos they need printed, two of the student and one large class photo and one large school photo*.
  • The digital copy of the photo will be made available for download when the physical photos have been delivered to the school. The digital photo download link will be provided with the printed photos. Parents who order the E pack will receive the digital copies of their photos on the USB and will not need a download link.
  • Parents can order different photo packs and they can order as many as they want by writing the numerical number in the shaded blue part of the order form.
  • C pack, D pack & E packs do not include the digital copies of the photos. Only the physical photo will be provided unless they order an A pack or B pack.

 

AJTaylor Images does not provide decorative printed products like mugs, mouse pads, bookmarks, calendars or magnets.  We do this to keep operating cost lower by only offering the photos people really need. Parents who do want to have decorative printed products can do that themselves with the digital copy of the photo. The digital copy is a high resolution, non-watermarked 20*mega-pixel JPEG suitable for printing.

 

*20mega-pixels: Most photos will be approximately 16-22mp in size depending on cropping factors.

 

*school photos: Whole school photos are available at no extra cost, it is up to the school whether they decide to take one or if it is feasible to capture. Schools with less than 100 students are generally able to get a whole school photo. Schools that have a population over 100 will need to discuss arrangements like utilising a ladder, hill, steps or a drone to capture the photo.
If a school photo is not taken, the E photo pack will not be available. There is also no reduction in the price of the A pack or E pack despite having one less A4 sized photo

 

The System

 

We will send you all the order forms.

 

We use a photo code matching system. That means orders can be paid online if they choice not to pay in cash by using their unique photo code

 

Order forms for school photos will be sent to the school, which will then be distributed out to the students to take home.

These order forms will have all the details explaining how to order photos and how to fill out the payslip.

 

The order form comes with an envelop and a form explaining the order.
Parents will write out the student details and the requested order on the blue order form envelope.

Each order form has a unique photo code, this unique code can also be used to log on and make eftpos payments.

If the parents decide to pay in cash they can place it inside the envelope.

Parents will keep the orange form which also has the photo code on it for logging in online.

When a parent logs in via our website using the 7 digit photo code they will be redirected to another web page with the identical photo number.

On the redirected web page they can find out more details about how to order photos.

 

The blue order form must be filled out with the student's details.

On photo day the blue order from will need to be brought back to school.
Parents do not have to purchase a photo pack if they don't want to, but the blue order form still needs to be filled out with a name for ID purposes.
If the order form is lost a new order form can be provided by the school. Extra order forms will be given to the school.

Once the photo is taken on the day of the photo shoot we will match the photo number to the website photo code. This will then complete the match so we know what that they have paid online or not.

Parents who want photos with all their children together will need to fill out a separate family photo order form.

The family photos can only be purchased using the F pack.

All the siblings will be in the photos. There is no cost per sibling. Only one fixed price.
These forms will be provided to the school. The school can distribute them or leave them at the office for collection.

The student order forms will still need to be filled out and returned to the school as normal.

The family photo order form will need to be brought back and returned to the school with the oldest sibling.

AJTaylor Images reserves the formal rights to any images we shoot. Parents and schools will hold a limited use licence, so they can do with the photos how ever they please.
