I’m sure we all remember our graduation, or at least parts of them, but when I got the email asking for an event photographer for the German School graduation here in Seoul, I knew what mine was missing! We have so few photos from our graduation, and so much has changed since then. I knew that I would have to make some great images throughout this day.
We started the afternoon with the school-prepared section of the event, which was the official handover of graduation certificates and well-wishing from teachers and the German community in Seoul. Once these formalities were done, a quick round of sparkling wine was had while we waited for the buses to take everyone to the next venue.
The evening portion of the event was organised by the students, who hadn’t told me what they were preparing! This involved the students giving awards to their teachers and evaluating their performance over the course of the year. It was great to see the level of comradery expressed not just amongst the small group of students, but with their teachers, as well. This was followed by some musical performances by the students, and then the photo booth they had requested.
All in all, it was a great event and everyone had a lot of fun. If you’d like to enquire about having your own graduation or other school event covered, please get in touch.
