Before or after the day, you can get professional formal graduation photographs taken. The University has provided a set of academic regalia for all Simon Fraser University degrees to Artona. Visit for more information about your graduation photo options!

Photographers from Artona will be at your ceremony to take a photograph of you at your special moment of recognition on-stage. They will contact you directly with information about how to order your photographs. If you do not hear from them within a week, you can contact them through their website.

Artona will be set up on the north side of Freedom Square (between the Library and the AQ) on convocation day for four-pose individual and family portrait sessions before and after each ceremony.  Graduands are photographed on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit them after you pick up your regalia!
