SUPS Events

Who are we?

The SUPS Events Team aims to bring professional quality photography to students and societies of the University of Southampton at affordable prices. We are a team formed from members of the society, with a variety of skills, interests and experience. Established in 2012, we cover over 50 events a year and have worked with a variety of clients and requests- have a look at our portfolio to see what we can do!

Although the majority of the work we undertake is formal balls, lectures, nightclub events or sports matches we are not adverse to other types of photography and our team of photographers are able to meet most requests to a high standard.



We try to be honest about our pricing and charge a standard rate wherever possible. Please note that our prices include all post-processing and editing after the event, in addition to any equipment hire your event may require. All prices below are subject to the addition of a small travel contribution where it is deemed appropriate (this would be due to the location of the event or the end time of the event making it infeasible to walk or use public transport services).

General Events

Our photographers charge a base rate of £40.00 for the first two hours, and £15.00 per hour thereafter. This works as follows:
2 hours roaming photographer – £40
4 hours roaming photographer – £70

We are also able to offer a studio service at larger events- this consists of a backdrop and professional lighting for “official” event photos. We charge £15 for the hire of this equipment, in addition to the photographer’s fee.

Sports Matches

Highfield Campus – £30 per game
Wessex Lane – £40 per game

Studio Work

Using our photographic studio in building 42 we are also able to offer portraits and studio shoots:
Actor’s Portfolio headshots- £35
Studio + photographer – £15 ( + photographers hourly rate)

Charity / Non-Profit Events

We regularly photograph charity events and ventures at a reduced rate. Examples include the RAG naked calendar, charity balls, Christmas fayres and free concerts and shows for students. If you think your event would benefit from a photographer please contact us and we’ll see what we can do for you!


Booking Information

Please contact us to book a photographer, either through our Facebook page or via email. Don’t worry if you’re not sure exactly what you need for your event, just provide as much information as possible and the Events Team Co-ordinator(s) will be happy to help. We try to respond to all requests within 24 hours, often a lot faster!
Please enquire early to ensure we have photographers available; we can get very busy, particularly around Christmas and at the end of the year, with several events being photographed a day.

It is standard practice for our photographs to be uploaded onto our Facebook Page, SUPS Events, however, they can also be sent to you by request.

Our Photographers

All of our photographers are members of SUPS, and are either students or alumni of the university.

To ensure that we provide professional quality photographs at events, our photographers are required to shadow events when they join the Events Team (as a free photographer). This allows them to be trained ‘on the job’ whilst giving us the opportunity to give them feedback on their photos and advice on how to improve. Once the photographer is confident to shoot an event, and their photos are of professional quality, we allow them to attend events as a paid photographer.


Please note: All our photographers are hired as Freelance Photographers and the Society does not, and will not, make a profit, receive or handle any money from Events / SUPS Events.
