BSSC 2018 Graduation Portrait Photography

This year we have secured the services of a full professional portrait studio to supply beautifully styled Graduation and family photos.

Your official Graduation photographer will be Andy Banks Photography.

The official photography area will be setup in the Strategem Studio, Ulumbarra Theatre.

Photography is available prior to the ceremonies and immediately after.

The College will offer the use of Graduation robes at no charge for “Graduating Students” in official portraits. This will offer a good experience and a quality Graduation portrait.

A one off “payment in cash only” of $30 is required per student upon photo registration so please have it ready on the night. $10 of that is the sitting fee and balance of $20 is towards print purchases. The College has negotiated a discount on any prints purchased from this event making them more than reasonably affordable for students or family.

Photos can be viewed by appointment at ABP a week after the event.

Studio located at 1a Timbertop Rise Maiden Gully 3551.
