Photo shoots generally fall into three categories:
- VIP/donor events, for which departments will need prints or digital images
- News events, which UCM covers for The News at OU or other university publications, such as OU Magazine
- Faculty/staff/student staff headshots
To schedule a photo shoot, contact your account manager with specifics, including: photography date and time, description of what/who needs to be photographed, and fund number. We will assign one of several pre-screened photographers in the area who offer competitive rates and are familiar with OU’s procedures. After the assignment, the photographer will return his/her invoice and photo disc to UCM, and your fund will be charged, with the expense appearing in Banner under account K053. You will be contacted when the prints/disk are ready for pick-up. The images will be archived in our digital photo archives.
For photo reprints, describe the photo(s) needed to your account manager. We'll send the order to an out-of-state vendor to take advantage of low prices. This may take a few weeks. When received, we will notify you for pick-up and charge your fund. If you need prints sooner, just let us know. We have other options for filling orders, but they may be more expensive.
We also update and maintain the university photo archives. As new photos are taken, we add them to the digital database for use in university materials. Below are several OU photos which you may download (click on image for full size, then save to your computer). Please contact your account manager if you're interested in accessing other photos from the UCM photo archives.
