About Us

The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted us all and like other businesses we need to make changes to protect our staff and customers. It has therefore regrettably become essential to suspend trading for the company from midnight tonight (Tuesday 24 March 2020). 

We would like to reassure our customers all orders will be secure, and as soon as this current situation eases will be processed as a matter of priority.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support in this matter and hope that you and your families stay safe in these difficult times

Lafayette is a specialist in academic photography and as such, has a proud tradition of providing high quality services to the UK’s finest educational institutions. We recognise that every client is different, so before we do anything our experienced team will discuss your exact requirements with you - resulting in an exceptional service designed around you, your venue and your timings.

Although the way we have captured images over the years has changed, the fundamentals of capturing the perfect image remains the same now as it was when we were established in 1880. At Lafayette we know how to create great images not only by adjusting the pose of subjects, but with the use of light to enhance every detail of their portrait. With a heritage stretching back over 130 years, and a reputation of doing just that, we are recognised experts in the art.
