University Photography

University Photography provides a variety of services.

Information we need before we take photographs for you.

  1. Five business days lead-time- do not include weekends or holidays. During peak times in the semester, our calendar can fill up quickly, so scheduling two to three weeks early (if possible) will help to ensure we can fulfill the request. Our cut-off time is 10:00AM -requests made prior to the cut-off time will include the current day as part of the five day lead time.

  2. Please make photo requests using the online request system whenever possible (link provided below). You may also initiate a request by telephone, e-mail (u-phtgy@emporia.edu), or in person at University Photography, if needed. If you do not hear from us within 24 hours, a follow-up email or phone call is suggested.

  3. Day and date of assignment- for example, Friday, September 17, 2017.

  4. Exact location- if on campus, building and room number- if off campus, street address and name of location.

  5. Time- The time that photography is to begin. If assignment is for an event, the time that the event begins—for example, Awards banquet begins at 6:00 P.M. , awards presentation begins at approximately 7:00 P.M.

  6. Subject- What is to be photographed? This can be the name of an event, or a specific part of an event. For example, Chemistry class, or students in chemistry class doing experiments under new fume hoods.

  7. Contact Person and Phone Number- The name of a person who will be present at the event and can be contacted by the photographer in case additional information or instructions are required.

  8. Intended use of photos- If they are for a publication, give us the name of the publication. For example, Biology Brochure, alumni magazine, student recruiting flyer. If not for a publication, give us how they will be used. For example, web, display, gifts etc.

  9. Requested by- Person initiating the photo request. This may be the same as the contact person, but sometimes is a different person. This is a person we can call to get further information about the assignment prior to the event.

  10. Special instructions- Anything else that the photographer should know that isn't covered in the areas above. For example, “shoot group photo of approximately 50 people”, or “shoot photos of 15 individuals receiving awards followed by one ‘surprise' award at end of banquet”.

What is the message? Knowing the message you want to project allows us to craft the image to fit your needs.
