The Marketing Department has no offical photographer on staff, but can help out during daytime hours only for the following :
What we are able to do for you due to out limited staff:
- Shots needed for PR purposes only that need to be in high resolution format -such as headshots for magazines, professional awards, etc. or any purposes related to marketing the college. We ask that you give us 48 hours to provide someone.
- Department shots for a slideshows on rare occasions when this is needed to promote your program. For example, if your department has impressive equipment (WQM program) that other schools might not have, then we could set up a slideshow to promote this.
What we ask from you (If you do not have a camera to use, you can check out one from marketing) :
- Take your own staff/faculty shots if you wish for them to be on the web. Send them to us (many of you do this already). We can definitely upload these to the web site on the contact or faculty/staff pages of our web site, if provided by your area. However, if you have a high rate of staff turnover, we recommend you do not do this.
- Graduations must be covered by your individual departments and we can recommend a professional photographer if your are in need of one.
- Luncheons or other events, fairs, etc.-please designate a student or staff member from your area to cover the event. Most of the time, when we have sent someone to cover it, the photos were never used.
- After-hour events- please assign someone in your area, or contact us for a list of professional photographers to contact.
Please know that we always here for a photograph resource to make sure you can figure out a way to get photos necessary. Contact Adam Thomas (email@example.com) for questions or to reserve our red (easy-to-use) camera for your needs, if you have no camera in your area to use.
