Photography Request

University Marketing and Communications employs a staff photographer and one-three student photographers, depending on the time of the year. While we attempt to make their services available to the whole campus, their primary responsibilities are to capture images and video that can be used in recruitment materials and they have limited availability. In the event that UMC isn't able to provide a photographer, you can explore these other options:

  • Utilize your smart phone camera. Phone cameras continue to advance in technology and oftentimes are capable of capturing high enough resolution images to share on social media or other platforms.
  • Check out a DSLR camera from UMC's office in 409 Cohodas. We ask that you reserve your camera at least one week prior to your event by emailing You can pick up the camera 24 hours before the event and return it the first business day following it.
  • Contract with a commercial photographer. Refer to the procedures for contracting commercial photographers for more information on going this route.

To request an official UMC photographer's services, please email with the details of your request.
