The graduates have contracted a professional photographer for photographs. To minimize confusion and congestion during the awarding of degrees, please restrict personal photographs to graduates off-stage. We also ask that camera tripods not restrict the safety and convenience of our guests as they move through aisles. Please respect those who are trying to view the ceremonies from auditorium seating.
All pictures will be available online for viewing and ordering at www.seavoltsstudio.com. Once at the site, please click the link labeled "Log into our store here" at the bottom of the homepage. Pictures will be online within 72 hours and will be available until December 2018. If you have questions about photography, please contact Seavolt's Studio at 740-397-0541.
