7. Photography and live stream

Sharing your achievements with your family and friends is an important part of your graduation day.

During the ceremony, each graduand is individually photographed by Silver Rose Photography, UQ's official photographers. This includes when you cross the stage to shake hands with the Chancellor.

No other commercial photographers are allowed inside the venue, and guests and graduands aren't allowed to take flash photographs during the ceremony.

Once you leave the stage, you will be told how to order official photographs of your ceremony.

You can also have graduation portraits taken before or after your ceremony. Photography studios are located in Morrison Hall on Gatton campus, or in the Michie Building and Great Court on St Lucia campus.

Live stream

All graduation ceremonies are live streamed, so family and friends can watch online if they can't attend.
