When is the best time to book the Leavers Portrait Package in 2018 ?
May is a wonderful month, the days are longer and the College grounds are exquisite in Spring colours. June is fantastic with its low warm setting light and the photographs are best taken late in the afternoon.
If possible it is perhaps best to book outside of the A level exam period which in 2018 runs approximately from the 16th May until around the 15th June.
The best booking period in 2018 is from the 1st – 15th May and then after the Fourth of June celebrations held on the 16th June until College closes on the 30th June.
What if it is bad weather?
We would quite simply re-book for another day, we can easily do this as we live in Eton and do not have to purposely travel to Eton.
Eton Boys Leaver Portraits – A 250 Year Old Tradition
As local Eton photographers we are carrying on a 250 year old Eton College tradition by taking Eton boys leaver portraits.
First recorded in the seventeenth century, by which the headmaster presented books ‘to all young gentlemen who took their leave of him handsomely’. Handsomely seems to have implied the present of some £10 or £15 (noblemen paid double) slipped unostentatiously on to the headmaster’s desk when taking final leave.
It was to a headmaster, Dr. Barnard, who reigned from 1754 to 1765, that the idea occurred of asking for a portrait instead of a leaving fee from his more distinguished pupils.
