Do You Wear Glasses?

Glare occurs in most glasses, even non-glare coatings still glare. At the time of your sitting the photographer will try to insure that no glare appears in your portrait. To make things easier, and to guarantee no-glare photos, we advise that you borrow empty frames from your optometrist or remove the lenses at the time of your sitting.

Note: Stray hair, discoloured or damaged teeth, oily or shiny skin cannot be retouched.


Composite Photos

Composite photos will be available immediately following convocation at Reception.

After your convocation date, you can drop by to pick up composite photos from Reception in the Office of the Master, New College, 140 Atkinson.  Please be sure to check our office hours at least 4 hours prior to arrival.


Please check the  York Convocation site for further detailed information about convocation.
