Personally, one of Jonathan's favourite things to photograph is high school graduates. If you are graduating from a Red Deer or area high school in 2011, you need to call Traptow Photography! While Jonathan understands the importance of the Cap and Gown photograph, his desire is to capture the personality and individualism of each graduate through radically different photography compared to any other Red Deer studio.

If you are looking for an experience rather than another chore, then Traptow Photography is the studio for you. We have Cap and Gown sessions starting at just $55, with reprint packages beginning at just $100. Our most popular session is the Enhanced Graduate Session, where we start with a planning session to guarantee you get the portraits you have dreamed of. We will then spend an hour and a half in-studio or on location creating dynamic and unique portraits, that are truly a reflection of you. We will then present your images in a digital slideshow that is all about you. Can the contract photographer at your school do that for you?
