Jun Cha of “Hann’s Photo & Video” will be returning to take our photographs this year. Pictures will be taken at our studio, in Knox Presbyterian Church Hall, on Monday, May 13th. Each class group and individual pictures should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. We will hand out the picture order envelopes in advance (prices are the same as last year), so that they can be prepared with a cheque, correct change or an e-transfer to hannsphotovideo@gmail.com  at the time of the order.

Please come into the Hall reception/lobby area that is rented by Arabesque, and not to other areas of the church. Due to limited space and time available to us in the hall with the photograph set-up, please have students arrive in costume, covered with a robe5 minutes before their photoHair and make-up must be done as for the performance, prior to arrival! This year, all students have at least one costume change and will require a “nude suit” to be worn under costumes. This makes costume changes quick and easy. Students may bring the other costume(s) in a garment bag, change quickly, and leave in the last costume worn for pictures. The fewer people in the hall and lobby area, the easier it will be for us to keep the photographs on schedule. Also, do not take picturesduring the photograph session.
