School Time Photo

Now and where we are going…

On May 1st, 2024 we officially changed our name to… School Time Photos. We have serviced all of our schools for years as Photography by Mark. Same company, same people, new name.

School Time Photos is a regional school photography company located in Sioux Falls, SD. We service South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa. Our company has multiple photo teams that are capable of photographing large or small schools and districts.

School Time Photos is a strong mid sized school photo business that is looking toward the future. Our foundation is firm and we are constantly working on improving and upgrading our services and products. We believe in having a solid base of schools and taking care of their needs.

School Time Photos is a family owned business. When you call our office, there is no call center. In fact the odds are pretty good when you call you will be speaking to an owner. We take great pride in keeping our business strong and family focused.
