Just as Covid-19 restrictions have changed the way learning is delivered by schools, it has changed how MSP provides school photography.
Our priority is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our schools and their students, our employees and the wider community.
Mindful of evolving Covid-19 restrictions, MSP Photography have developed necessary and practical processes for school photography.
During lockdown periods, any existing school photography bookings will be re-scheduled. Your local MSP office will then contact your school to re-book Photo Day when schools re-open and MSP staff can attend the school premises. To contact your local MSP team click here.
Some MSP offices will close during lockdown and will contact your school to re-book upon re-opening. For additional assistance, during these periods, please email [email protected].
We operate in accordance with state’s local directions for Covid-19 safe practices.
MSP Photography additional processes
In addition to local regulations and in line with Covid-19 hotspot rules:

Using school photos
Having access to current student photographs is important for schools and teachers.
Student portraits play a vital role in assisting school staff in areas such as student security, health & identification. These images are used within schools in areas such as:
- Updating Personalised Action and Emergency Plans for students with allergies, health issues and other specific requirements.
- Student Reporting.
- Identity Cards and badges for public transport as well as camps, excursions and similar activities.
- End-of-year assemblies.
- Publications and Yearbooks.
- Administration initiatives and records management.
