School class photos done by them were ok sent off order everyone recieved photos except me, when i asked the school they had nothing for me no name on list etc spoke to them direct with order reciept number they had no knowledge of my order or cheque tried to tell me to pay more for late order if i still wanted it i said no thanks cancelled cheque as no one new where it was and i had no order apparantly for them months later asking me to pay for photos i didnt recieve, i phoned them to speak to them only to have someone be agressive and raise there voice to me and tell me that me or the school have the photos and i have to pay!!!! Then they blamed me saying the cheque bounced it didnt i cancelled it way after the photos had been delivered and was told they didnt recieve my order so the cheque is irrelevent . They probably lost my order found it later then tried to cash the chrque way after .Yes i raised my voice back but after being interupted and not listened to several times and being spoken to in such a agressive way i felt it was the only way by then i had lost my temper swore and hung up never spoken to such bad customer service people before to make me react like that. They contacted the school the next day to discover that guess what i am not lying i did not recieve my photos and its not my fault, i wouldnt use them ever!!!!

Had our school class photos back from the school recently. The school had changed to them from another company but the class photos vancols did were underexposed, badly set up and in a bad location with a house in the background which if needed they could have edited out. The prints themselves looked like a dry lab quality so this is quite poor £9.50 for an 8x6 that I could have printed better on a dye sub. The group itself fit better as a 10x5 format, so I emailed them if this was possible to print this size. This was two weeks ago and they never even got back to me. We are taking our own school individual photo later this year so we know we can get it right. Pull your socks up vancols!!

Simple school photos were so bad many parents complained to the school. Van Cols came in a second time to do a better job. I've just received the new photos and the photos are worse! Avoid disappointment choose ANYONE ELSE!
Kids were not evenly spaced at all, children overly spaced at the front and crammed in on the back two rows. Messy looking photos in traditional style and 'casual groups' with some kid's heads huge and some with pin heads. Odd expressions with gaping mouths. A waste of the school's time! So disappointing! It's not that hard to get it right. Avoid, avoid avoid!

Bad arrangements. Had to come back to shoot as so many dissatisfied parents. 2nd shoot just as bad. Real shame as it's final year

Poorly taken child's photograph. It was very blurry in parts and poorly lit. We sent this back and I was told that their lab would fix it. The next was just the same. Now a refund is proving difficult to obtain.
Poor customer service and not a very good product. Not sure if this is a one off but I would not use them again.

They are very easy to deal with and provided a very professional service.
I would recommend them if you require quality photographs, nothing was too much trouble and the results were fantastic.

Very disappointed with the so-called professional photo, I could have done a better job for free on my camera!!! Doesn't take expert to figure out if this photo looks professional or NOT!!!
