When making a request for the university photographer, we appreciate notice of at least seven working days. And, while we appreciate your timely requests, we do not operate on a "first-come, first-served" basis. Creative Services prioritizes photography coverage to ensure that images from campus-related events can be used in multiple internal and external publications. We will do our best to cover critical events scheduled for evenings and weekends.
Our top priorities for the university photographer include:
- major university publications
- W&M News and releases to the media
- the William & Mary website
- Ideation Magazine
- faculty and key-staff portraits
We will be in contact with you, generally within one to two business days, to discuss your needs in greater detail.
