PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICES

The University Communications Photography Department creates images that tells the UNCG story. Our imaging specialists work in an editorial and documentary style. The still and motion photography sets the standard for outward facing  communications. Our work supports a wide variety of UNCG publications, multimedia, and online communications.


SOCIAL DISTANCING

Cognizant of social distancing and the University’s mandate regarding face coverings due to Covid-19, University Communications procedures and visual products are and will be different as compared to past years. Learn more.


ASSIGNMENT STILL PHOTOGRAPHY

Our still photographers provide a variety of imaging services to the UNCG community. Due to the limited availability of our photographers, we request that assignments be reserved for situations that are outward facing and help further the department, school, and university’s mission and message.

Note: In some circumstances, photography requests may be outsourced—in these cases, subsequent costs incurred will be the responsibility of the requesting department or office.

Please allow sufficient time (ten or more business days in advance) whenever possible. Please allow at least ten working days for delivery of photographs to the online archive.

NOTE: University Procurement now provides Photography and Videography convenience contracts. Using these vendors provides a more streamlined process to hiring a contractual photographer or videography team for your departmental needs. Utilizing providers not on this list may require completion of the RFQ and/or the RFP process. When you request a quote from one of these providers please make sure that RFP #69-3321 is referenced on the document. The subsequent costs incurred will be the responsibility of the requesting department or office. Care should be exercised so that actual costs for production are fully understood.
