Tempest are UCL's official photographers they take studio portraits, including family groups at your Graduation Ceremony. There is no need to book or pay in advance.
For more information about styles and a guide to the various packages and prices available please refer to Tempest website.
There are two styles of photography available on the day, each giving students the opportunity to capture that special moment. Photography services are available before your ceremony. If you would like to have photographs taken in the professional studios, to avoid disappointment, you should arrive with enough time to robe, register and have photographs taken. The studios will close 30 minutes before the ceremony begins.
In all studios, the photographer will take portrait style shots of you on your own or with a group and will then produce proofs so that you can see what your final photographs will look like. Once you have chosen your preferred image(s) you can make your way to the sales desk where you can chose the photography package that you would like to purchase.
Tempest Classic Service
The service offers conventional photography and will take place in a studio against a standard backdrop. This style of photography is traditional. As there are a large number of these studios you do not need to book in advance for this service, you simply queue on the day.
This is a bespoke service which will provide contemporary photography in a darkened studio with customised lighting. 'Studio b3' will offer students and their guests a personalised service with more studio time and a range of hand-crafted frames. To complete these bespoke frames students will be offered the choice of black and white or colour photographs, and black and white overlays.
'Studio b3' is by pre-arranged appointment only. We advise you to make the appointment for the period before your ceremony to ensure you don't miss out on your reception.
