School Photos with a difference .......

School Life is a locally owned photography business operated by Tauranga photographer Dean Preston.

Dean has worked as a professional photographer for many years -  he is well known for his natural and expressive photography of children.

For Dean, it’s important to convey a sense of life in his work. It's about capturing mood, expression and emotion through the lens and portraying them with artistic vision.

Dean has published two coffee-table style hardcover photography books named "Children of the Bay" packed with spontaneous and timeless images of boys and girls from Tauranga and around the Bay. With these photo books, Dean has raised significant funds for the 'Make a Wish Foundation' and local charity 'Homes of Hope'.

School Life offers something different than your usual type of school and class photography. The photos taken by School Life are of excellent quality and there are several packages to choose from. This makes purchasing School Life photos an option for every budget.

The School Life team is all local so if you have any questions about School Life’s services, please don’t hesitate to contact them. They are always happy to help.
