What to Expect at Convocation - University of Calgary

January 09, 2019 Kristal 0 Comments

The time has finally come to officially graduate! You've waited four (or more) years for this big moment and we can't wait to capture it for you. Here's what you can expect from us at convocation in June 2019:

1. We take two photos during the ceremony

The first photo we take is on-stage right after you receive your degree (finally!) and shake the Dean's hand. After you cross the stage, we'll snap a quick photo off-stage:
Cost: No sitting fee required

How to register: No need to register. You may opt-in to receive emails from us with student services.

How to order: After convocation, we'll send information to your student email address on how to access your online gallery and create your order. We sell both digital and printed images and most orders range between $50-$150.

2. Want more photos? You can sign up to do a mini session called "4-Pose"

These sessions are just like our full portrait sessions but without the casual shots. You'll take four unique poses in your cap and gown with two of our classic backgrounds. You can even take a photo with your family or friends. Students love this option, since everyone will be together to celebrate!

Cost: $60 deposit + $15 sitting fee to support student services

Where to find us: We will be doing 4-pose sessions at the Oval Observation Deck for the following hours during convocation week:

June 3-7, 2019
Monday: 12:30 pm - 1:40 pm and 4 pm - 5:30 pm
Tuesday -Thursday: 8 am - 9:10 am and 4 pm - 5:30 pm
Friday: 8 am - 9:10 am and 12:30 pm - 2 pm

How to register: There's no need to make an appointment students can register on the day of convocation on a first come, first served basis. Sessions will stop 30 minutes before each ceremony and resume after the ceremony finishes. Once you register, we'll hold your spot.

How to order: After your 4 pose session, you'll have access to a private online gallery so you can create your order and apply the $60 deposit like a credit. We sell both digital and printed images and most orders range between $50-$150.
Can't make it on the day of convocation? No problem! We will be at the University of Calgary a few times before convocation week. You can view the scheduled dates and make an appointment here. The cost is the same as a 4-pose session but you get more time with our photographers and more photos, including casual shots.

Congratulations graduate! We can't wait to see you on the big day.
