Our photography New

The photography we use centres around people.

The style is reportage: candid and real, capturing everyday student life in a modern university environment.

The images should be crisp, using natural colours with use of different focus where appropriate.

Photos should be simple but interesting and creative without feeling posed or contrived.

Our image library can be found at www.brookes.ac.uk/imagelibrary

Individual people

Honesty is key – avoid overly posed shots which don’t look or feel natural. Subject should be active in his or her environment.

Details of people

People can be shown without necessarily showing their faces.

Detail shots can be useful in giving extra interest to a cover or spread.
