Photography & DVD

Photography and DVD

The official university photographers, will be on campus for the whole Congregations period.


Ceremony Photography

Wherever possible, our official photographers will take a photograph of each candidate crossing the stage.

These photographs will be available to buy on the day from the Boiler House and take home, or can be ordered online afterwards from the Tempest Photography Website.

Studio Photography

Graduation Photography Studios will be open between 08.00 and 17.30 every day during the Congregations (between 08.00 and 19.30 on Wednesday 4 December 2019). They will be in the Barbara Strang Teaching Centre for July Congregations, and Lower Ground Floor of Hadrian Building for December Congregations. Booking is not required.

We recommend that you have your photograph taken before the ceremony or after the reception.

On the day you receive a proof of the photographs. You can then choose what to order immediately, or place an order after Graduation using the Tempest Photography Website. Photographs will be posted out within four to six weeks of the ceremony.
