  • Recommendations: Studio for Convocation/graduation photograph sessions

    Hi all cotters,

    Anyone here has any good recommendations on which studio to go for my convocation photograph session with my whole family? Any idea around how much will such photograph session costs?

    Thanks in advance.

    tried and tested these two :-
    1) Raffles photography
    used to be located at marina square..
    not sure if its still there..

    2) Gloria

    i would say that they are quite good
    price wise, its definitely higher than the neighbourhood ones..
    and it depends on the package that u take up..

    tried a small one under the HDB block kind..
    the quality of the photos were quite bad..
    another one i head bad reviews is li ming @ clementi...

      hi fellow cotters.... i've searched through this thread and found no similar threads.... if hope it's in the correct place

      For those graduated, where did you have your convocation studio shoot taken? Any raves or rants?

          i took it twice (family portrait) in Serangoon Broadway. heard several bad comments abt it from friends but for me was pretty ok. they even allow my dog to take with us!!

                I took mine with portrait gallery. They are good and not pushy!

                They take nice photo not your typical 2 rows kind of pic (parents in front and the grads old fashion)

                  is makeup & hair included in the prices for the entire family? or do you have to DIY?


                  • #10
                    werkz did not do any hair and makeup for me.
                    i had to go prepared.
                    they only provide the rental of gown and coat for my dad

                      Oh man, didn't realised that there's so many options I had booked my slot with Serangoon Broadway thinking that it's the photographer by default .. i've since grad 2yrs from my masters but was waiting for my bro to finish his before taking THE convo shot. Actually, both my bro and me are dreading to do this, but I reckon that my mom would really want that.. so..

                        efai, thanks. such a disappointment. was hoping they would do hair & mu..

                        does serangoon broadway or other studios do hair & makeup for such shots?


                        • #13
                          Serangoon broadway does makeup but not hair

                          But I think you can do a better job yourself. The lady just slapped on some foundation, blush, light e/s, eye liner for me. She finished in 15min.

                            how much did you pay and what did it include?


                            • #15
                              I paid $780 for the family portrait (35R iirc). 6 shots (3R) which I get to keep, out of which I choose the one I like to be the 35R portrait.
                              I also did a personal photo - $180 for 24R. Also choose 1 out of 6 and I get to keep all the 3R.
