Photography and memorabilia

Your graduation day is a special occasion and we'll have professional photographers, from Tempest Photography, on hand to capture it. You'll also be able to order memorabilia as a souvenir of your day.


Your graduation day is, for most, a once in a lifetime experience. To mark the occasion you can order the following memorabilia.

Studio photography

Professional photographers from Tempest Photography will be present at all our graduation ceremonies. They can take an individual shot as well as photographs with your guests. Check our 'On the day' web page which we'll publish soon.

Studios will be located at the registration areas on your graduation day. The studios will open two and a half hours before your ceremony.

There is no pre-booking involved and no obligation to purchase the photographs that are taken. You will be supplied with an instant proof of your images, from which you can make your selection and place your order. Orders can be placed at the sales desk on the day or at a later date by telephone or online.

Although orders can't be placed before your photograph is taken, you can view the Tempest Graduations website for examples of prices and packages, along with terms and conditions.

Ceremony photographs

Tempest Photography will also have exclusive access during your graduation ceremony to capture the moment you cross the stage.

These images will be on display immediately following the ceremony for viewing and ordering; 8" x 6" prints can be taken away with you there and then, supplied in mounts foil-blocked with the University crest.

Don't worry if you don't have time to view or purchase your ceremony picture on the day. Two weeks after your ceremony, the images will be uploaded to the Tempest Graduations website to view and buy at your leisure.

Can I take my own photos or video?
Taking photographs and video is permitted in the venue, however, we would ask guests to be considerate of others and not block aisles or exits.

Image capture statement
We would like to inform you that the Anglia Ruskin University graduation ceremonies will be photographed, videoed and/or otherwise captured in image form. These images and video content may then be used by Anglia Ruskin University for publicity and promotional purposes such as prospectuses, advertising campaigns, websites, exhibition stands, posters, leaflets, national or local press articles etc. It is important to note that if any images are published on the internet, they will be accessible to users from all over the world.

It is possible that representatives from the press, television or radio may attend the graduation ceremonies and capture their own images for publication or broadcast purposes. Due to the scale of these events we are unable to obtain written consent from each individual attending or working at the events. Therefore, we will assume that whilst participating in these events all persons agree to their image(s) being captured for the purposes stated above.

If you do object to your image(s) being used in this way please make yourself known to one of the organisers on the day or email [email protected] before you attend.
