The Office of Marketing and Communications has limited photography resources on staff, dedicated to capturing striking WSU Vancouver images that can be used to support the university's broader communications and recruitment marketing efforts.

Photo requests

You may contact the Office of Marketing and Communications to request a pre-existing photo. It helps if you are as specific as possible regarding the image you are looking for. If you can, please include the subject of the photo, date and location the image was taken and by whom in your request. If you are requesting a high resolution photo of a web image, please include a link to the image.

We have a large archive of photos available for use on Flickr (flickr.com/wsuvancouver). To download a photo:

  • Click on the image, then click on the Download arrow at bottom right
  • Click "View all sizes" and select the size you'd like
  • Right-click and "save as" to your desktop OR click "Download"

Photo shoots may be scheduled, based on photographer availability and relevance to university marketing priorities-student recruitment and enrollment.

Event photo coverage

The Office of Marketing and Communications provides photographic coverage of noteworthy events taking place on the WSU Vancouver campus. Because of the large volume of campus events and limited staff resources, we can only cover a select number.

In general, the office does not photograph internal department activities, awards ceremonies, staff /faculty receptions or parties, or student club/organization events.

Decisions about which events to cover will be made solely by the office of marketing and communications, and will be based on the uniqueness and newsworthiness of the event and the potential an event presents for striking WSU Vancouver images that can be used to support the university's broader communications and recruitment marketing efforts.

If we cannot photograph your event, we can help you select a freelance photographer at your own expense. We suggest you contact them at least two weeks before your event.

Headshots and group portraits

If time allows, we also provide occasional photographic services to individual faculty and staff members who need quality portraits or headshots, or to departments that may require group shots for university-related marketing and communications purposes. We appreciate as much advance notice as possible when scheduling these sessions; two weeks is ideal. We will provide the subject(s) with a copy of the digital image for departmental and personal use. We do not provide photographic printing services.

Videography

The Office of Marketing and Communications does not have a videography resource on staff. If you wish to hire a freelance videographer at your expense, contact Laura Dutelle at laura.evancich@wsu.edu for a reference.
