Richard of Impressions

Richard of Impressions was founded in 1989 by Richard Atwood who had spent many years working for other Portrait companies.

Richard works in Primary Schools in the north east chiefly in North Yorkshire.

As a small company Richard offers a very personal and customer friendly service where parents can easily speak with us at any time and as such we can make alterations or changes to most images if needed.

In The School location great care and attention to detail is given to make each and every child relax and produce their best smiles. We always carry a toy box full of tricks to help some children who feel a little bit overwhelmed on picture day. Bubbles are the speciality.


All of our products are available to order on line ONLY on and we can even put on line images from previous years. By ordering on line, it frees the School of any unnecessary administration, but also gives parents full flexibility to order when they want to without any School deadlines. Also on line ordering allows us to offer a massive choice of options too.

A fantastic advancement in our software allows parents to mix and match images of their children into 1 bespoke package, rather than having to buy packages of each of their children in School separately.

The sort of images produced are very traditional and relaxed . We offer both traditional and modern products of individuals and Class groups , both inside and outside.
