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.


ASSIGNMENT STILL PHOTOGRAPHY

Our still photographers provide a variety of imaging services to the UNCG community. Due to staffing changes, campus units in need of still photography are to use the University’s Photography Convenience Contract options, available here

The hiring of a convenience contract photographer is the responsibility of the requesting unit as is the subsequent costs incurred. 

University Communications is working to hire a full-time photographer. Until such time, units are encouraged to use the contractors available via the convenience contract services as they have each completed an RFP process and were reviewed by University Communications.

When scheduling a contracted still photography session, please allow sufficient time (ten or more business days in advance) whenever possible. The contractor will provide the images directly to the requesting unit. If you wish to have those images placed in the University Communications’ Image Library, please contact brandaid@uncg.edu

Photo Releases

A process and guidelines have been established for obtaining photo release forms from key subjects in photos to be used by UNCG in print and electronic publications. Departments requesting photography services are responsible for getting the photo releases signed by the subjects in the photos.

For more information see the Photo Release Process Google doc and the Photo Release Guidelines in the UC Brand Guide.

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.
