Senior Photo Submission & Information 2023-2024


FREE Senior Photo Portrait Sessions for 2023-2024

Such a deal! Hawkeye/Tempo photographers will take the vast majority of the senior photos for the yearbook. We do not charge for these photo sessions! However, if you’d like to order prints, they will be available for purchase at a reduced, special rate available only to MTHS seniors via our online photo service. 

To book a sitting, simply click on on this link. There you’ll see a bright green Book A Session button in the lower right hand area of the screen. Click that link and make an appointment. It’s that simple!


(NOTE: If you cannot see the button, or if you are on a mobile device, try zooming out on the webpage and it should appear.)

Senior Photo Submission for 2023-2024

If you choose to submit photos taken by someone other than the Hawkeye/TEMPO photographers, please understand that we reserve the right to not print any photo for any reason. The most common issue we have is that submitted photos do not meet our quality standards and will not look good when printed in the yearbook. However, if you can follow the requirements listed below, the TEMPO may be able to print your submission. Here are the details…

Senior Photo Requirements

If you would like to have your yearbook photo taken by an independent photographer, we only will allow submissions that meet specific requirements and are submitted properly by Friday, Dec. 15, 2023.


File type: TIFF, JPEG, PNG or PSD only.

Resolution: 300 dpi minimum.

Size: Must be at least 640 x 800 pixels and maintain that ratio as a minimum.

Submission Method: Photos must be submitted via the link below or on a clearly labeled USB thumb drive (you may get it back when we’re done with it)

File Name: The files must be named as follows: [STUDENT’S LAST NAME_FIRST NAME_#.SUFFIX] #-the number (1-5) of the image in the collection of images submitted. The suffix is the type of file (.jpeg, .tiff, etc.).

Metadata: Please include student’s name, email and/or phone number in each file. If you’re unsure how to add metadata, it’s pretty easy. Just Google it! (Here’s a great resource to start with.)

Number of files: Submit 1 to 5 photos for us to choose from.


• Student’s full face is visible

• Student’s face is within 5 feet of the photographer (d)

• The student is the only person in the shot

• The student is looking at the camera

• No selfies

• Photos are in color

• Nothing shown that would be in violation of our journalistic ethical standards

If your submitted photos do not meet the requirements, but are submitted more than a week before the deadline, we will work with you to help meet the criteria. However, if the photo is incorrect and sent within a week of the deadline, we cannot guarantee that your photo will appear in the publication. We will do our best to work with you, but please plan ahead. Our first backup is to use your school ID photo taken at the beginning of the year. If one is not available that meets our criteria, your photo may be replaced by a placeholder image in the yearbook.

Simply click the link below and follow the instructions to submit your senior photo to the Hawkeye/TEMPO staff. Questions? Contact us in Room 130 or email us at: [email protected] or [email protected] or [email protected]


NOTE: You MUST be signed in to a Gmail account in order to submit photos. If you don’t have one, you can easily create one for free at Google.
