SAIT has become a popular site for photography (weddings, photoshoots, and even broadcasting) due to its picturesque architecture and spectacular views. Photographers wishing to photograph on SAIT campus are welcome to do so by following the guidelines below.

Making arrangements

The photographer must contact Conference Services to book a time and location on campus. This allows SAIT to schedule accordingly while minimizing interruptions with other sessions. Please note that our office operates within business hours (Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm), and it is recommended that photographers connect three business days before the photoshoot.


The cost of booking is $250 plus GST and insurance, which is non-refundable. Payments can be made by credit card or by cheque made out to SAIT. If you have any questions or would like to book a time for your photography session, please contact Conference Services at or by phone at 403.774.4678.

  • The Other Woman

Making arrangements

Guidelines have been developed to simplify obtaining:

  • Motion Picture

Oki, Âba wathtech, Danit'ada, Tawnshi, Hello.

SAIT is located on the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of Treaty 7 which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina and the Îyârhe Nakoda of Bearspaw, Chiniki and Goodstoney.

We are situated in an area the Blackfoot tribes traditionally called Moh’kinsstis, where the Bow River meets the Elbow River. We now call it the city of Calgary, which is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.
