Other stuff we feel is important


You've got the gowns? Right?
In most cases, when you come to us there is no need to bring your own gown, hood, mortarboard or scroll. We can provide these for the most popular QUB, UU, OU and other universities. You will find further details and a complete list of the gowns we stock in our downloadable brochure.
I'd like to include family (and even the dog!), is this possible?
Yes, we would encourage you to bring family (and even your trusty pets too). We can accommodate even large groups at our studio.
Sensory awareness
If you or any of your party have any particular needs that you would like to make us aware of, please let us know in advance of your session. We are sensory aware, with all our staff having completed training and examinations with Autism NI. If you need us to turn the lights down, quiet the music, or just want to come to see us before your session – we’re here for you.
Are prints/digital images included?
None of our sessions include prints or digital images. Your session fee covers the time of the photographer and the use of our gowns only. In the same way the universities do, prints and digital images are available to purchase at the end of your session. Orders must be placed on the day and cannot be purchased after the session. Your booking fee is not a “deposit” and will not come off your order.
