The Office of Communications and Marketing
The Office of Communications and Marketing provides assistance with photography of major university events. Faculty and staff are welcome to check out a digital camera. Perhaps, you need to document events for departmental files, grant applications or replies to sources that provided funding (grants). A loaner camera would serve your purpose. Perhaps you would like to photograph individual participants (12 or more) or award winners at your ceremony or contest. A loaner camera would serve your purpose. Perhaps your event will extend beyond the slated time frame, usually an hour, a photographer is available. A loaner camera would serve your purpose.
The department offers helpful photography tips for faculty and staff who check out loaner cameras.
The Office of Communications and Marketing reserves the right to select, edit and use submitted images as deemed necessary and suitable for university publicity and marketing purposes.
In the case of weeklong observances that include multiple events, the program coordinator and Director of Media Relations will converse to identify those events that are best illustrated by photography.
Given the numerous requests for photography, the Director of Media Relations may determine the best service is to set a select number of images following an event. Since freelance photographers assist the department and may not recognize university officials and personnel, the program coordinator should be available to assist the photographer in identifying the subjects whose photographs need be made.
Please remember, most freelance photographers charge an hourly fee and are available to work for a specified time frame only. Those arrangements are made well in advance of the event. If your organization would like to hire a photographer to cover the entire event, the Director of Media Relations can help you identify a qualified photographer.
The ECSU Office of Communications and Marketing does not provide publicity for events that are not sponsored or co-sponsored by an official entity of the University.
