Photography is an essential part of the University. The UNL brand will benefit from a variety of photographic narratives that should follow the specifications found here.
UCOMM PHOTOGRAPHY DEPARTMENT
UComm Photography is fully staffed to document everything that happens on campus as well as to catalog and archive every shot. When commissioning new photography, remember to follow the guidelines on the right; our photographers are well-versed in them. Visit ucommphotosrv.unl.edu to browse our library of images.
OUR PROCESS / REQUEST A PHOTOSHOOT
Our photography staff handles all the photography needs of the University: from marketing to editorial. We’re fully capable of handling any photographic need you may have. Here’s how to proceed:
- Through a phone call and/or in-person meeting, we will listen to your need and ideas. Then we will couple those to our ideas and skills to create a photo plan. We will set up scenarios and start scheduling students, faculty members and getting the necessary permissions to be in buildings and/or other locations around town.
- We can then create a shot list, shooting times and other supporting documents or be flexible and just get shots “on the fly.”
- Once images are shot, we send links with possible picks for review and final selections and send you a packaged link with your photos
