University Communications handles a wide variety of photography- and video-related work for the University.

Although we don’t have an in-house photographer, we do have a list of preferred freelance photographers that we routinely hire. We’ve also developed a sizeable photography collection from which photos may be used for non-commercial purposes.

University Communications maintains a digital asset management system (DAM) for use by campus staff and faculty that regularly need campus imagery.  For a specific image request, please call (804) 289-8625.

Campus units interested in video consulting may call (804) 289-8625 to inquire about possible collaboration. Depending on availability and priorities, University Communications may be able to handle the work in-house.

We also encourage campus units to use their own original photography and video wherever applicable. For advice on capturing the best images and footage, see our photography and videography tips. When using original photos and footage that depict people, be sure to collect release forms.
