About SGS Studios

SGS Studios is a photography company with a single aim – to produce beautiful images that wow our customers! We want every one of our photoshoots to deliver outstanding results – natural and emotive portraits. Our professional portrait photographers and digital artists work together to make every photographic project a success, to be consistently excellent for every digital image, and to exceed all expectations. We strive to make our school photos good enough that they would not look out of place sitting above a fireplace as a large canvas or framed print. Be it a group photo, a fine art retouch, or corporate ID cards; we remain passionate about our work.

“When we are not working as photographers, we are photographers”

More about sgs studios

Our Vision

Photography, Art & Passion

Studio photography has changed along with the digital technology that drives it. The days of a single portrait and false smiles are long since gone. At SGS studios we have replaced by a full photography studio shoot experience in under 2 minutes. How can we do this? 

Because we have professional photographers who are genuinely passionate about their work, and they have become experts at getting the right shot and emotions quickly. 

Our photographers can engage with adults and children alike and produce the emotive images that are loved. 

We work in a challenging business, where it is tough to please everyone all of the time.  However, we base our performance on our customers receiving a high-quality product, a benchmark flowing into all areas of operation, and our choice of people, suppliers and our workflow makes this happen.

Our people

Our people are professional photographers and artists through and through. We come from all walks of life and experiences, but we love what we do. When we are not working as photographers, we are thinking about photography. It really is our way of life.

Working as portrait photographers is one thing, but working as high-volume portrait photographers, who continually produce high-quality results, is undoubtedly a step-up. 

At SGS studios we can assure you that we get it right most of the time, and for the times we get it wrong we will be there to provide a solution before you have noticed the problem. 

Our team, and we are a team, are driven to provide our customers with great products and to deliver successful projects no matter what it takes.


Our Products

The next time you speak with your photographer or look at your print products, establish the real quality of the print process used. Often-times, this is where studios make cost savings because this is the expected norm in high-volume photography. Because unless placed side-by-side, not everybody can differentiate between a cheaper and high-quality print.

SGS Studios offers print products printed by our professional partner labs. We select our print products chosen for their paper quality, level of detail, and colour. 

We offer our selected products based on what our customers want. Although we offer print packages, designed to keep down selling prices, we also provide the full à la carte menu. From paper type and print sizes to canvas prints, you have the choice because we love to see your portraits in print. 

Purchase your digital files from our online store in extremely high-resolution and print as many times as you wish. Our artists retouch photographs individually and with care. There is no need to be concerned when printing wallet prints or the fireplace canvas –  every picture is beautiful in its detail. The larger you print, the more you will see this in effect!

We are breaking the mould in both high-volume photography and studio portraiture by combining both of these events on your photo day.

School Photography

SGS Studios knows the business of school photography. From our experience from many thousands of portraits, we know how to get the photograph, but we go beyond just getting the shot. Our company has turned your average school photo sitting and condensed it into a full studio shoot performed in under 2 minutes. We give the school the images they need and a great selection to please students and parents alike, all the time making it fun.

We offer a variety of styles for both groups and individual portraits, including classical groups, panoramic “stitched” groups, seated groups including bespoke portable seating. Ultimately we are flexible and scalable enough to offer our services to the largest of clients and deliver outstanding projects within very demanding timeframes. SGS Studios aims for a perfect score every time, and we listen to our customers. Think of us as an extension to your team and your new “colleagues” will ensure you meet your goals.

Events Photography

From a school trip to the UN, a theatre production of Guys ‘n’ Dolls or a client at Art Basel, we love the diversity and challenges of photography events. We won’t produce mundane coverage, but we do want to tell a story, show an emotion or create something artistically accomplished. Our total quality mindset drives all aspects of our projects, from the rapid availability of images for social media posts to the quality of our image retouching, we want to surpass your expectations and share our passion with you.

SGS Studios is not only a professional photography company, they provide customers with the extra mile.  I wanted additional photos for my three kids and also the full family, and Stephen was kind enough to recommend poses and did a superb job with all the photos.  The only issue is we actually wanted to buy all the photos taken, which is more than 50 in total!  Highly recommended!!

The school photo shoot resulted in a wonderful set of pictures of my daughter – all of superb quality and customizable on the ordering page.

The extended family absolutely loved the pictures and they all asked for one or two photos as Christmas gift. We even needed to re-order some of the most popular portraits to ensure that at home we also had our own copies.

Stephen and team offered a wonderful service and accompanied us through the ordering and reordering process by being always accessible and responsive. Many thanks and hope to work with you this year as well.

We have been happy with the quality of SGS Studios’ work and with Stephen’s open and responsive communication with members of our school community.
