Platinum Group

PLAT_Group_logoThe Platinum Group is based on providing Family Portrait appointments requested by the customer as distinct from leads. We have partnerships with Activity Superstore, National Childbirth Trust (NCT), Foresters UK, Leisure Guard and Daily Mail Rewards, Groupon and Sassy Bloom.

Join the Platinum Group and receive bookings, not leads, from exclusive national partners:

  • Dedicated area – no other photographer will receive appointments made in your studio’s area
  • Approved photographer – become the recognised Barrett & Coe Recommended and Approved photographer with all our national partners
  • Selected by ability – not first come first served. Studios involved will be selected after an application and acceptance process.



In the case of Activity Superstore, Family Portrait Gift Experiences have been purchased for around £40 via their website and from leading national Retailers including Argos, Boots, Co-Op, Debenhams, Next, WHSmith and Wyevale Garden Centre.

For any Platinum Member that would like them, we will be receiving Activity Superstore Makeover/Boudoir/Fashion etc.

We have recently obtained a new National Partner that is held in high regard. This is Lord Robert Winston’s Genesis Research Trust which has Charity status.

This will provide a substantial number of new portrait bookings, primarily through the purchase of portrait vouchers for £25 through their network of fundraisers and other supporters. They will also come via their website, marketing of their database and other on and offline promotions. This Trust promotes science for the health of women and babies.

We are currently in negotiation with a number of other national partnerships and our objective is to achieve an exclusive group of reliable and professional studios giving national coverage for our partners.
