You’ve got the degree. We’ve got the gowns.


You’ve done the hard work, now let us make it easy for you. In our studio, we have the largest range of academic gowns and hoods outside of the universities and have a permanent collection of a huge range of academic gowns and hoods for Queen’s University, Ulster University, Open University and more. We clean these between sessions and take great care of them. We’ve been told many times, that often our gowns are in better condition than those at the universities. For hoods we do not have, we are able to easilly colour change similar hoods to maintain accuracy. We also have mortarboards (caps), scrolls and gowns. If you have a question about your hood choice please get in touch.


We’ll take our time and make sure you look your best


You may be used to the rushed experience of university graduations, however we take our time to make sure we get it right. You will be dressed in your gown by one of our team. We will also make sure your academic hood and mortarboard (if required) sit well on you. You will have time to make sure your hair and make-up look good in front of our long mirror in the studio and you will see yourself on our screen everytime we take a photo. We want to make sure we get this right.

See your pictures live as they’re taken


All of your photos go straight to our studio computer as soon as they are shot. You’ll see them appear seconds later on a large vertical TV screen, where you can review each picture and adjust as needed. Your family can also get involved if you like, and help you choose your favourites.

At the end of the session we will go through your chosen images, where you will decide what it is you would like to order. Our brochure contains a complete list of our packages and prices including printed and digital options.


Include family, friends and even pets


Your graduation is one of the most important steps in your life. Most families like to be part of that, and that’s why you can include your family, friends and even your pets in your photos. We will take a range of different combinations, such as parents with the graduate, grandparents etc. You are also not limited by the number of people you’d like to include.

Got graduation photos from Graham. He was very professional and accommodating and had us all relaxed throughout. Photos are excellent. Very lucky to find him especially during the pandemic with his supply of gowns and hoods. Would be happy to recommend his services to anyone.



I recently visited Graham’s studio for graduation photos with my parents. He was super friendly during both our interactions, of getting our photos taken and upon collecting. The photos turned out great, and he was more than happy to oblige with retaking / changing any photos to make sure my family and I got exactly what we wanted. Would definitely recommend.



Due to the pandemic, I was unable to have a proper graduation. I went to Graham to get a graduation photo done and it was such a great and funny experience! Graham is such a laugh and me and my boyfriend had such good craic with him. I was a little difficult as I’m a bit nervous getting my photo taken but he was so professional and I ended up with a beautiful photo! I said to him “I hope you make me look good” and he did not disappoint! His little studio is so cosy and welcoming with amazing photos of animals too. I would 110% recommend! Thank you Graham
