Barksdale, the pioneer of school photography, celebrates 101st anniversary Mr. S.P. Barksdale, the founding father of the school picture industry, was employed by the WilsonMagazineCompany in theearly1900s. In1922, hisgood friendwas the superintendent of the Philadelphia Public School System. As the district was building its student files, Barksdale was asked to provide photos of each student to be attached to the records. He agreed, as long as he could also sell the photos to the parents to help pay for the service. Other school districts heard of the idea and asked Barksdale for photos of their students. The school picture industry was born. S.P. Barksdale even built the first school picture camera. Today, Barksdale – under the leadership of S.P.’s great grandchildren – provides school picture services to more than 2,000 schools across the country from their headquarters in the suburbs of Philadelphia.

Make-up dates and re-sitting dates at the High School will be coordinated with the school’s administration. We ensure that all portraits will be professionally and technically correct. Re-shooting of portraits due to technical problems (such as closed eyes or improperly arranged clothing) will incur no cost to the student. Proof booklets will be delivered to individual students by mail within 10 days of their sitting date, with no cost to the individual or the school. After receiving an order, finished prints will be mailed directly to the student’s home or sent to the school within six weeks.
