The university photographer is available to photograph university events and individuals for print and online, marketing initiatives and publicity. Priority will always be given to events and photos for which there is a broad external marketing purpose.
All photo requests must be received a minimum of seven (7) days prior to the event for scheduling purposes. If a photography request cannot be accommodated, Creative Design Services can recommend a freelance photographer (which you will have to pay for), or a digital camera can be checked out from Odum Library’s Media Services.
There is no charge for CDS photography services.
CDS does not provide printed photographs. You will need to provide CDs, DVDs or some form of external storage device if the size or quantity of your digital images is too large to email (10MB limit).
