Photography at Kingston University graduation ceremonies

Studio photography

Before your ceremony starts the graduation photographers, Tempest, will be ready to take a picture of you in your hat and gown.

There's no need to book or pay in advance, just join the photo queue around two hours before your ceremony, to ensure you have enough time.

You can view packs and prices on Tempest's website – choose Kingston University from the drop-down menu and select the date and time of your ceremony.

Having your photo taken is free so we recommend you take advantage of the opportunity as you can choose the images and purchase prints at a later date.

As you walk across the stage to receive your award, your picture will be taken. You can see and buy the photograph at the ceremony reception.

If you don't have time to get a copy of your presentation photo on the day, you can view and purchase the images from Tempest's website a few weeks after your ceremony.

Tempest is our official graduation photographers

Please note

There are other photography companies in the Kingston area who offer graduation photography. These companies are not supported by the University, so there is no guarantee of quality. If you choose to use a company other than our official graduation photographers, Tempest, it is at your own risk.
