ISMS

This school really is something to behold. The Montessori approach has a long history, but is gaining popularity in Australia. The approach fosters children's natural love of learning, and encourages independence in a respectful environment. The school is a beautiful and peaceful environment, the children really seem to love it there.

I shot the school over several days to capture the rooms, and each of the stages (from infancy through to the end of primary school) and many of their activities. 

The school needed new images for their website and general use. It was really important to them that the photos showed the beauty of the school environment, and highlighted the different materials that the children use. Further - it was important to capture the children working as they would on a normal school day and not interrupt them! 

I haven't uploaded many images from this shoot (as a parent I'm very sensitive to using pictures of kids online) - so this only a very small sample.
