The tradition of “Eton Leavers’ Portraits” at Eton started in the 17th Century by headmaster Dr. Barnard (1754 - 1765) who asked his most prominent students to leave a portrait of themselves instead of the usual Leaver’s gift which at the time was somewhere between £10 and £15. As the years passed by, the corridors and grand rooms of the college must have become covered with portraits; so much so that the tradition soon started to die down, purely due to a lack of space.
In 2008 however, Rhubarb & Custard decided to make every effort to fully revive the tradition, but with a modern twist. We now offer parents and boys the service of taking a series of portraits of boys in their last year around and about the College grounds, with a final Leaver’s Photo Album or Photo-book being a popular choice of presentation for parents.
The Eton College Leaver's Book 2016
With the vast majority of boys now having their Eton Leaver's Portraits taken by us, we have started to emulate this old tradition by creating an heirloom quality photo book featuring all the boys who commissions us to take their Leaver’s portraits. This top quality book is then gifted to the College Photo Archives through the Provost. It is our goal to provide an artistic and super-premium quality record of the students who pass through Eton that will be kept in the College Photo Archives for reference, for posterity and forever. Make sure you're included - We can only include Leaver's who take out a Leaver's photoshoot.
