Grad Photo Information
Students make grad photo appointments directly with Mountain West Studios at (www.mountainwest.ca).
Grad photos are taken October 30-November 3. Each sitting is about 12 minutes. The $20 sitting fee is payable at the appointment. There will be several formal traditional cap and gown portraits as well as opportunity for casual photos in that time. A prop is welcome that represents your character (i.e. a basketball, hockey gear, musical instrument).
A grad photo is required for the Yearbook. **Grad photos MUST be done through Mountain West Studios by Nov. 3 to be included in the yearbook. Photographs taken by any other photographer WILL NOT appear in the yearbook. If you do not wish to receive any proofs and only want a photo in the yearbook, the sitting fee is waived but you must advise the photographer at the time of the photo shoot.
If you have any questions please call or email Kathy Fitzpatrick, Area Manager for Mountain West Studios at 604.889.7099 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Things to Consider:
- Be early for your appointment time.
- Boys should have a collared dress shirt and tie to wear under the gown and girls a bare neckline usually works very well.
- A grad photo is required for the Yearbook.
- If you do not wish to receive any proofs and only want a photo in the yearbook, the sitting fee is waived but you must advise the photographer at the time of the photo shoot.
- There will not be a retake day. If retakes are required, you can book them directly with our studio in Burnaby.
