Hanif graduated with a Bachelor’s in Aviation Management from UNSW in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. His whole family and aunt flew over from Malaysia to celebrate this achievement! We were there to help remember the special places where he spent the last 4 years and the special place where he first met his girlfriend!
As Sydney Event Photographers we came to share the experience with them as Hanif took his family around campus. We visited different buildings in UNSW where he had lectures. We saw the places where he spent his free time with friends. We visited the quadrangle, the main walk, and the famous UNSW Library lawn. We saw the place where he met his girlfriend that had so many memories!
Because UNSW had formal and stage photos organised, our role was to really capture the story of his studies and such a significant portion of his life spent here. It was to capture the relationship between his family, and their feeling of celebration and being proud of him as the eldest child and the first to finish his degree in a field he was passionate about. He wanted to capture the mood of him walking to a lecture, or relaxing on one of the many lawns. These are the small things that they will look back on years from now, and perhaps even show his children in the future!
Sure they could have brought their own cameras like so many others do, and dad was a keen photographer too. But having us there allowed them to fully experience the day, instead of worrying about camera settings or where to stand. It allowed candid moments to develop and real memories to form, memories that we could capture so they could relive.
