My Eton Days Subscriptions


 

"My Eton Days" subscriptions are a unique service that we offer to Eton College Parents and Boys. Instead of remembering his time at Eton through countless House photos and Team photos which, in time will invariably end up at the back of a cupboard or in a wine box in the loft, now you are able to create something that captures his true personality, shows the activities he gets involved in, the friends he has made and the beaks who form part of his life. We take a series of 3 photo shoots of him each year that he is at Eton. You then have the option of us compiling all the photos into an incredible heirloom photo book that will allow him to look back at these times with fondness and pride. 

Located conveniently on Eton High Street, we are just 2 minutes walk from Eton College Chapel. We are fortunate in that we have built up a great relationship with the college, due to our reliability, quality and flexibility, and are thus able to access the college grounds and buildings, including your son's house with permission. Having studied at a similar public school himself, our photographer's background and approach is perfect for communicating with beaks, dames, and boys to organize shoots and helps us identify with the boys to capture their true personalities.

As an Eton Days Subscriber,  your son will have 3 photo shoots per year (1 per term). Each photo shoot is about 30 minutes to an hour long and varies from a formal shoot around and about the college grounds, to a rugby match, to a fun reportage style shoot with a group of friends, during a play or concert that your son is in and so on.

You are free to renew or cancel your subscription and the beginning of each new academic year. Then at the end of his fifth year you can choose from a wide range of top quality photo-books and albums ranging from clean cut modern styles, to the more traditional leather bound editions or the more modern fully bound photo-books. As we progress, you can purchase photos after each session and will be made available as simple prints, digital files, collages and triptychs, cut-outs and many other ways of presenting the photos, making ideas gifts for Grandparents and Godparents and relatives. We also have a large range of inexpensive silver plated tabletop frames that would add a special something to each photo. Prints start at just £18. Subscription prices cover the shooting time, admin and organisation of the shoots and does not cover any optional products such as prints, photo-books, collages etc. These are all available for purchase during or after your subscription has ended.

Please note that the cost of a final photo-book is not included in the subscription price.

Each photo-shoot is published into an individual master album so that you can keep track of your son's photo-shoots and watch the collection (and your son) grow over the months and years.

Over the years that your son is at Eton, we will collect a varied and rich range of photos that will make the final album come alive and become a wonderful chronicle of such an important part of his life.

"Be proud of your 'Eton Days" and cherish the memories for a lifetime !"

Your Photographer, Halid K Izzet.


Halid is resident photographer, owner and founder of Rhubarb & Custard. Halid is passionate about Portrait & Landscape photography and has a proven track record of both over a wide spanning career. Following his dream of owning and running a photography gallery and studio, Halid opened Rhubarb & Custard in 2008. With a number of Landscape and Travel exhibitions under his belt, he is now focusing on his other passion, Portrait photography, building the business with clients from Eton College and becoming Eton's most used portrait photographer. His concept of "My Eton Day's Books" came from a lack of photos that represented his own time at school. The ability of being able to represent a student's journey through the most prestigious school in the world, and through the time when they change the most, turning from child into adult, is both a huge privilege and fascination to him.

Halid has also taught photography for over 8 years, both in workshops, evening courses and one to one lessons & coaching. He continues to teach select students on a one to one basis from Rhubarb & Custard in Eton. 

Halid can be booked for Private portraits, family reunions, weddings, corporate portraits and advertising work, as well as Private lessons & coaching in the Art of Photography.

"My Eton Days" Subscriptions - Questions & Answers

 

Q - How long do I have to commit for ?
A -
"My Eton Days" subscriptions are renewed at the beginning of each academic year. You only commit to one year at a time (that's 3 photoshoots) and can take the option of not renewing at the end of each academic year.

Q - Do I have to buy any prints or files during the subscription ?
A -
No; There is no requirement at all for you to purchase anything during the course of your subscription. However we do have all manner of prints, framed photos, photo books, acrylic wall frames, cut outs and so on, during your subscription. Please also note that the cost of your subscription does not include the cost of a final photobook as these are all priced invividually, based on the number of pages and size of the books themselves. Please contact us for details of our our current heirloom photobooks and prices.

Q - Do you literally follow my son around the college grounds - he would find this embarrasing!
A-
Absolutely not ! The last thing we want is to embarras your son, with a lens fixed on him all the time, so all our shoots are arranged at discrete times, when other students aren't around. They are all pre-arranged with your son at a time that's convenient for him and are for a maximum of one hour at a time ( & often less).

Q - Will it interfere with his studies ?
A -
Not at all - We have an very flexible agenda and are able to fit shoots in at most times of the day. Furthermore, some shoots, such as a football or rugby match,  don't even involve any extra time from him as we'll just be on the touchline while he's playing. Although we allow an hour for each shoot, most actually just take between 15 and 45 minutes (Housemasters and dames for example wouldn't want to have a shoot with them that takes longer than 15 minutes or so).

Q - Do I need to organise all the shoots for him?
A -
We do all the organisation for you. We would normally e mail your son directly, cc'ing in the Dame and yourself, so that everyone is kept informed every step of the way.
