Cap and Gown Portraits
Students will have an opportunity to have posed cap and gown portraits taken at the Moody Adams Field House during cap and gown pick-up hours. This opportunity is open to ALL students graduating this semester, not just to those participating in the commencement exercises on campus. This is a FREE sitting with no obligation to purchase the image.
Candid Campus Photography will set up an on-site studio with lights, cameras, and backdrops in a classroom in the Field House. Students should NOT unpack their commencement regalia for the portrait. Candid Campus will provide the appropriate cap, gown, shirt and tie, and any other necessary regalia for each student to have a portrait made.
Students should come to this portrait sitting with faces shaved or beards trimmed, hair styled, and make-up applied so they will be prepared for their photograph. No appointment is necessary as photographs will be taken on a first come, first served basis. Each portrait session is very brief.
About a week after graduation, Candid Campus Photography will provide students with complimentary color proofs. Students, their family and friends, can view the proofs online and make any desired purchases at that time. For further information, please visit the company's website (www.candidcampusphoto.com) or call 1-800-233-3686.
All students participating in a commencement exercise on campus will have a professional photograph taken by a photographer from Candid Campus Photography as they receive their diploma cover from the President on the stage. Additionally, doctoral candidates will be photographed as they are being hooded. After they exit the stage, graduates will be photographed individually in cap and gown with their diploma. There is no obligation to purchase the commencement photographs and no charge for the photography.
About a week after the commencement exercise, graduates will receive an e-mail and/or letter from Candid Campus Photography containing a link to their proofs. Be sure to check your MC e-mail account for this correspondence. Candid Campus provides a choice of backgrounds and a variety of package options for graduates to select photographs which best meet their needs. All ordering is done through the Candid Campus website (www.candidcampusphoto.com). No orders will be placed or payments will be required before or during the commencement. Questions should be directed to Candid Campus Photography (1-800-233-3686 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
