Ceremony photography

The images taken by the official event photographers will be supplied to WelTec and Whitireia. These images may be used by both WelTec and Whitireia for advertising purposes, potentially online and in print. Typically, we will capture and use a mix of portrait, group and distance shots. If having your photos circulated will cause you undue concern, please email us at or

The WelTec and Whitireia marketing team will also be taking photos of graduates throughout the day at the ceremony. They will politely introduce themselves to you before taking any photos.

Please note the Graduation is a public event and you may appear in the background/crowd of a photo being taken.


There will be an official photographer at the Ceremony.  They will be on hand before and after each Ceremony so you and your friends and family can get group photos. During the Ceremony, a photo will be taken of you when you are on stage.
