Information about photography on your graduation day. 


Professional Photography

Graduates having their picture taken

We use Tempest Photography as our official graduation photography service. Photographs will be available for purchase in a range of different packs and frame styles to suit all tastes and budgets.

Tempest Photography set up studios on campus on the day of your ceremony. No booking is required - you can just turn up on the day. The studios are open throughout the day, though we highly recommend visiting the studio before your ceremony to avoid the busiest period (immediately after your ceremony). 

You will receive ‘proofs’ immediately after your session so you choose your preferred images for ordering. You can order your pictures on the day from the sales area or at any time thereafter via the Tempest Photography website.

We know many of you will want to capture images throughout graduation with friends and family. There are lots of great photo spots around MediaCity and on our Peel Park campus. We’ve put some suggestions together in our video below.

Top tip: don’t forget to bring your student ID card to move for free between campuses on the 50 and 51 buses.
