Official Graduation Photography

The University has appointed Tempest Photography as the official portrait photographer for Graduation day.

Tempest will be operating two varieties of studio service (located in the Percy Gee Building) – the standard Classic Studio and the high-end Studio b3 which affords customers a more indulgent and bespoke studio experience complete with its own exclusive range of products.

Graduates are not required to pre-book nor are they required to pre-order products and in our Classic studio there is no obligation to place any order even after you have had your photographs taken.  Instant proofs will be given to you as you leave the studio, enabling you to peruse them at your leisure and to place your order either at the sales desk or afterwards via the website*.

All packs ordered on the day will receive FREE wallet and mini prints!

Tempest offer an extensive range of products which are available to view in advance online at:

* Note: Studio b3 (unlike the Classic service) is an on-the-day service only and cannot be ordered online.

When is the best time to visit the studios?

  • For those attending an 11am ceremony we recommend you visit the studio between 8.15am and 10.15am.
  • For those attending a 3pm ceremony we recommend you visit the studio between 10.15am and 12.45pm.

The studios will be open throughout the day, and there is no requirement to book.  The above times are merely suggested for those keen to avoid the rush at our busiest periods during the day.
