SUB Photo is proud to be the official provider of grad photos to the Education Students' Association since 2008!  If you want to be included in this year's grad photo composite you've come to the right place.

To be included - all you have to do is visit us for a photo session during the year of your convocation ceremony. That's it!  If you want all the details, they are below; but your main task is simply to sign up: just click the link below!

For a limited time, Education students get FREE grad photos SUB Photo!

Your ESA and the Department of Education are preparing an online celebration of this year's graduates - and they'd like to include everyone if possible!  To get photos of more graduates for this online 'yearbook' - and also for the grad photo composite - SUB Photo is teaming up with  your class to offer this EXCLUSIVE 2-week special.

The free sessions are only for Education students, and only apply during this promotion.  Your photos must be TAKEN between July 20 and July 31 at SUB Photo to qualify.  Sign up today!

The "Fine Print":

  • WHEN: This offer applies to sessions booked and photographed between July 10 and July 31, 2020.  Available session times are on the calendar at
  • NO EXTENSIONS will be granted for no-shows or moved appointments.
  • ONLY ONE free session per person; multiple bookings will be removed.
  • This offer does not include free prints or downloads; photo products will be available for purchase online after your portraits are taken.

How to be included on the Composite

It's easy!

Basically, just visit SUB Photo before the end of the year to have your photo taken.  As long as your name appears on the official graduation lists you will then be included on the final composite.

A proof of the composite will be shared on social media before final printing; so stay subscribed to the ESA page and our SUB Photo Facebook page to make sure you get the update!

The deadline for having your photos taken is usually December 20 in the year of your convocation ceremony (NOT necessarily the year you finished your classes).  June and November 2020 graduates will have until this coming December to have their photos taken and still be included. If you believe you have missed your deadline please get in touch; if the final composite has not yet been printed we may still be able to squeeze you in!
