Portraits – Formal Cap and Gown Photographs

Mountain West Studios will be here at Pitt Meadows Secondary to take Graduation Portraits on November 27, November 28 and November 29.  They will be set up in Room 2222.

Students are required to book their appointment using Mountain West’s online booking system.  After you book your appointment you will be sent an email for confirmation and a reminder email 24 hours  prior to the appointment.  You will want to book your appointment as soon as possible so you can be sure you have a time most suitable to your schedule.

To book an appointment visit www.mountainwest.ca and follow these instructions:

  • Click the “book a grad session”.  Click this tab and it will open up a second page with a drop down menu.  Maximize this page (this is important).
  • Select your school, then select a session “Grad Portrait”
  • Now a calendar will open up with the dates available for photo sessions.  Select the date you wish and the time available and start the procedure of creating a User ID and password.  Again this is important!
  • If you need to cancel or change your appointment time you will need to log back in as the “returning user” to do this.  So you will want to remember your User ID and password!  Again this is important!
  • Sign up for one appointment time only please!

Your Grad Photo sitting is scheduled for approximately 15 minutes.  There will be several formal traditional “cap and gown” portraits taken as well as the opportunity for casual photos during that time.  You will then select one of the first 3 formal photos for the yearbook publication.  The yearbook coordinator, Mr. Chu, has important date deadlines that have to be met, so please make the most of your grad sitting.

In appreciation of your time please be ready when your name is called.  Please be at Room 2222 15 minutes before your appointment time.  Boys should have a dress shirt and tie to wear under the gown and for the girls, a bare neckline usually works very well.

For the casual photos, students are encouraged to bring a prop or two that represents your individual character whether it is with basketball, hockey gear or a musical instrument for example.

Within a week after the sitting you will receive an email with a link to view and order your photos!

Note there is a $20 sitting fee payable at the time of your session should you wish the proofs to be emailed to you.  If you are not interested in purchasing a portrait package, there is no charge for the yearbook photo.

If you have any further questions regarding the Graduation Photos, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Mountain West Studios at 604-433-0551, ext 126 or email grads@mountainwest.ca to speak with Thomas O’Rourke.
