NZ's Leading School Photography Company

PhotoLife is a 100% kiwi owned and operated family business with third generation family members now involved. PhotoLife is New Zealand’s leading school photography company as we combine a unique understanding of school environments through three previous teachers across three generations and a
dedicated team with a passion for school photography.

School photos help identify a school. As trusted school photography specialists with over 90 years experience we can help create the right look for your school and how you would like your school portrayed to the wider school community. 

With nationwide coverage our regional offices are situated throughout the country, supporting local communities and employing local photographers familiar with the schools in your area. 

Attention to detail sets our photos apart. From our professional photographers to our specialist staff behind the scenes our team is committed to delivering a quality product that is backed by an honest and reliable service.

Whether you are a small rural primary with 50 students, a large urban college with 2000 students or somewhere in-between, every school is equally important to us.

Thank you to all of our loyal customers, we appreciate being part of your school community. If your school isn’t a current customer of PhotoLife we welcome the opportunity of meeting with you and showing you what we can offer.
