Photo services request

Requests for photography must come from University Relations communicators or affiliated communicators.

University Relations is now part of Advancement. We are no longer offering studio portrait photography, except to fulfill specific Advancement needs.

InnovationSpace in Torgersen Hall loans out high quality cameras and equipment at no cost. Locally-based freelance photographers are available.

There is a database of over 110,000 images available to university clients.

Request Form

  • Upon completion of a photo shoot, the photographer will edit the files and present the client with the best images.
  • Clients will receive images as electronic files. All images remain the property of University Relations and will become part of the university’s photo database.
  • Schedule sufficient time for the photo shoot, and remind subjects of how long the photo shoot might take.
  • Model Release Forms are required for photo shoots that involve anyone who is NOT associated directly with Virginia Tech, including children and alumni. Model Release Forms are also required for any shoot where the photographs will be used in paid advertising. (*Current faculty, staff, and students are considered DIRECTLY associated with Virginia Tech.)

* Required Fields

* (e.g. Lisa Roberts)
* (e.g. (540) 992-4892)
* (e.g. <someone> must be a valid and complete Virginia Tech address)
* M/D/Y
Include other necessary information such as: names, titles, and contact information of people appearing in photographs, how many photos are needed, orientation of photos (horizontal/vertical), contact person(s) other than requestor.

This should be a person a photographer can contact at the time of a shoot if there are any questions, or if someone is not available when the photographer arrives at the scheduled time.

This contact is required for photo shoots away from the photo studio in the Media Building.

This form is for requesting photographs only and does not guarantee a photographer will be available. After the request has been considered, Photography will contact you by phone or e-mail. Final images are presented in digital file form. Since all assignments need to be edited, files are not available immediately after an assignment.
