For the past several weeks, the University of Ottawa has been constantly emailing, and twice letter-sending. They want me to purchase the photos they took of me at graduation. The only issue is, they're fucking garbage. The pictures that my family took of me from their seats in the balcony are better than the pictures the photographer took from 5 feet away.
Whose hand am I shaking here? Is it Chancellor Huguette Labelle, or maybe its Mrs. Claus? We will never know.
And here. Once we got backstage with our degrees, they chose to take a picture in front of a fake background, which is looking up at the ceiling of Tabaret Hall. This is the least natural background possible. How many ceilings do YOU stand in front of each day?
So, good try, University of Ottawa, but I think its time to fire your photography team. No one I've spoken to is buying what you're selling, and your correspondence is a waste of everyone's time.
