The University has an official photographer on site on the day, providing a range of photographic products for graduands.

You must pre-book photography - you cannot organise this on the day.

Booking deadlines:

  • Sunday 11 July for ceremonies during the week commencing 19 July.
  • Sunday 18 July for ceremonies  during the week commencing 26 July.

Tempest Photography is the official photographer for Loughborough University's graduation ceremonies, offering an extensive range of products viewable in advance at  Specific information for Loughborough University graduands will be available on the Tempest website once the exact time of your ceremony has been confirmed.

Tempest will be operating multiple studios on graduation day. These will be located in the James France Building (no 67 on the Campus map). The studios will be open from 8.15 am until 30 minutes before the last ceremony.

A photography slot must be booked with Tempest in advance; unfortunately it will not be possible to offer drop-in slots on the day, or book on the day itself.  Please ensure that you schedule your slot after registration and gown collection but before your ceremony.  A £10 deposit will be required, which will be deducted from the cost of your photographs.   If you are unable to attend graduation for any reason, you may contact Tempest to arrange a refund of your deposit.   

Instant proofs will be given to you in the studio when your photographs are taken and also emailed to you, enabling you to select your favourites and place your order via the Tempest website or by telephone. All orders placed will include a free set of mini prints.  

Presentation Photographs

Tempest Photography will also be on hand to capture the moment you cross the stage and are awarded your degree. These images will be available to view and purchase online seven days after your ceremony. 

It is not necessary to book a presentation photograph slot.  

Photography around Campus

Please be aware that the University photographers will also be taking photographs on the day of the ceremony which may be used in University publicity. Wherever possible your consent will be obtained but this may not be practical in all circumstances (i.e. crowd shots).

Graduation before December 2017

If you attended a graduation ceremony prior to December 2017 and wish to order additional photographs, the official photographer was Success Photography - contact them via the link below.
