Ceremony Photography


The official ceremony photographer, Tempest Photography, will be located on the first floor of the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre, Sheffield Street.

Opening Hours

The studios are open from 1pm to 8pm on 11 December, 8am to 8pm on 12 and 13 December, and 8am to 7pm on 14 December. Simply turn up on the day if you have not pre-booked a session.

Booking Your Studio Session

To avoid the queues we would strongly recommend that you book your studio session in advance via the Tempest Photography website once you know your ceremony day. To do so, simply select ‘London School of Economics’ in the drop-down menu, select your ceremony date and time and then click on the ‘Bookings’ button on the left-hand side.

Alternatively you can simply visit them on the day.

Studio Sessions

Tempest will be operating two varieties of studio service – the standard Classic Studio and the high-end Studio b3 which affords customers a more indulgent and bespoke studio experience complete with an exclusive range of products.

There is no obligation to place an order when you book or attend any studio session.

Photography Orders

There is no need to pre-order your photographs. Instant proofs will be given to you in the studio when your photographs are taken, enabling you to peruse them at your leisure. You can then place your order either on the day at the sales desk or afterwards via the Tempest website or by post / telephone. 

For full details of the products available, please see the Tempest Photography website.

Degree Certificate Framing

Tempest Photography also offers a degree certificate framing service on the day and the LSE degree certificate folder.

On-stage Graduation Ceremony Photograph

As well as studio photographs, Tempest Photography will also capture the moment you are presented to the Director/Provost by your department during the ceremony. 

These on-stage graduation ceremony photographs will be available for you to download completely free of charge from the Tempest Events website. Please allow up to seven days after the ceremony for the on-stage photographs to become available.

Friendship Photographs

Tempest will be providing a special designated area - situated on Sheffield Street - where graduates are warmly invited to take their own celebratory photographs with friends and family.


Roaming Photography

A roaming photographer will take candid shots on the ceremony days. These shots will be available on the Tempest Events website. Please allow up to seven days after the ceremony for these roaming shots to become available.
