Photo and Video Resources

Our staff photographer and videographer are available by appointment only, and bookings must be coordinated through your marketing manager. Their services are for high profile events, as well as for marketing collateral and initiatives being produced or managed in conjunction with our office.

If your event will feature our President, Provost or a local/national dignitary, it is suggested that you contact the University photographer and/or videographer to ensure your event is on their calendars. Their ability to shoot your event is also at the discretion of the Vice President for External Relations and Director of Marketing and Communication.

For other events, our office has two digital SLR cameras that we can loan you. To borrow a camera, please contact or 901.678.2843 for details and availability. These cameras are available on a first-come, first-served basis and must be returned to us fully charged and in proper working condition.

Wardrobe Instructions

Clothing should be neatly pressed, look new, and fit well (not wrinkled or gaping around your neck, arms, etc.). Solid colors photograph best; avoid busy patterns. Fine patterns in a dress shirt or blouse would work well, though. Colors to avoid include orange, red, maroon, yellow, and neon/fluorescent colors. Avoid low-cut or sleeveless clothing. If you are uncertain about any of your wardrobe choices, bring alternative items with you.

Photo Release Form

If you are taking photos at a public event, a photo release form is generally not required. If you are staging photos for a project, it is a good idea to have your models sign this Photo Release form you can keep on file.

Marketing and Communication receives many requests to film farewell, tribute and retirement receptions. While every retirement celebration is a special occasion, we are a large campus, and staffing limitations make it impossible to film each event. Unfortunately, we can grant these requests only for University deans or members of the President's Council.
