Q. Why can't I just get the traditional class photo?
A. As we are photographing a whole school within a short space of time, we need to be very organised and have extremely effective processes. The philosophy behind Milestones is to provide a service that is simpler, more convenient and more productive, through the use of cutting edge technologies. To this end, we have each student's information provided to us prior to the photo shoot day. When they pass by us, we scan their barcode and that brings up their data. We then photograph that student and the photograph is assigned to that data package. The student then heads to the class photo area where they're organised by height. A class photo is then taken. A standard class with 30 students takes us approx. 4 minutes to photograph each student and take the class photo. This equates to 10-15 seconds per student for their individual photo and 60 seconds for the class photo. If we were to then try and make a note of each student's name, where they are standing or sitting, which row, etc. this would add at least 5-10 minutes to the process. With our method we are able to provide the school with the turnaround they require as well as offer what we believe is a better class photo option, the Memorymate. 5-10 minutes may not sound like a lot but when we are photographing 1000+ students in the space of 4 hours it makes a huge difference.
On top of that, we are able to offer unprecedented student safety in regards to the viewing of their images. Only a person with the unique password is able to access a student's image on our secure website.
