If you are interested in hiring us to take photos at your defense, please first contact us by phone or e-mail.

Confirming the date
Once we have confirmed that we can be available at the needed date and time, you will be requested to complete the payment though our website.

On the day of the defense
The photographer will join you half an hour before you give the presentation to capture the events of your preparations. The photographer will then take photos during the presentation, the defense itself, the diploma signing, the diploma ceremony, the group photo with the comity, and the reception afterwards.

Post processing
We will perform some photo retouching to insure that all images look perfect.

Final delivery
Within one month after the defense you will receive the following:

  • The chosen best photos (between 100-200 photos) of the day’s events in full resolution digital format with full copying and printing rights.
  • The same photos in an Internet optimized resolution, making them easier to send around on the Internet.
  • As a free optional service, we can provide an on-line gallery of your defense photos which you can immediately share with your friends and family.
  • Printed photos or photo-books of the photo-shoot. Additional printing fees apply
