You, crossing the stage to get your diploma: Priceless. Friends and family can take photos and our official photographers will document the event, too.  

Official photos

A photographer from GradImages will be at gown distribution so you can have your portrait taken. The photographer will take their time with you so you can look your best. You will be able to do solo and group shots in your gowns.  

The Concordia University Alumni Association arranges for GradImages to take photos at the convocation ceremonies as well. These photos will be a little more rushed. A photographer will take you picture:

  • before you go on stage, and
  • as you cross the stage.

GradImages will contact you within two weeks after convocation. They will present you with sample proofs that you can pick and choose from, as well as an order form.

Concordia and JMSB diploma frames are available through Concordia Stores, along with other convocation memorabilia.

Graduation portraits

Create lasting memories of your achievement with professional graduation portraits.

Lassman Studios can capture both traditional graduation portraits as well as more personal, stylised shots, if that's what you prefer.

What you get

The $25 sitting fee includes a minimum of 10 unique poses.

All graduation regalia, including gowns and hoods, will be provided on the day of your shoot. Choose from over 25 different portrait backgrounds or upload one yourself. 

Proofs will be available online for viewing and ordering. View pricelist.
