Photo and Video Resources
Our staff videographer, Marty Duell, and photographer, Trey Clark, are available by appointment only, and bookings must be coordinated through your marketing manager.
Their services are reserved for marketing collateral and initiatives being produced or managed in conjunction with the Department of Marketing and Communications office and for high profile events featuring our President, Provost or a local/national dignitary. The availability to cover an event is also at the discretion of the Vice President for External Relations.
To request photography or videography, please contact your marketing manager with details of your photography needs. Please allow reasonable notice (not less than 14 days) to assist in scheduling and preparation for your request. Late requests may result in the videographer and photographer not being available.
For other events, Marketing and Communications has three “loaner” digital SLR cameras for use by faculty and staff at University events only. To borrow a camera, please contact email@example.com 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.
Although the University partner has first rights to the images, all original images remain the property of the University of Memphis.
Faculty and Staff Headshots
Professional headshots are available at no charge for current faculty and staff, to be used in connection with the University of Memphis, only.
Typically available the first Wednesday of the month, headshots are by appointment only. If you are unable to find a date/time that works for your schedule, please contact Trey Clark, Marketing Photographer, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with dates and times that work for your schedule.
The headshot process includes the photography session, an individual web gallery for selection of one final preferred image, retouching and digital delivery of one final image. If there is any question about scheduling a headshot or how they can be used, please first consult with your marketing manager before making an appointment on the photographer's calendar.
Final headshots are located in the Marketing & Communications Photo Gallery. If your headshot is used for a Faculty/Staff listing on your area's website, it is your responsibility to provide/share it with your web point person. Final versions are provided in three different crops: vertical, horizontal and square.
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. Keep jewelry simple. If you are uncertain about any of your wardrobe choices, bring alternative items with you.
Photo and Video Archive
If you are looking for specific UofM videos or would like to access any of our public photos for your use (in connection with the University of Memphis only), please use one of the resources below.
Photo/Video Release Form
If you are taking photos or videos at a public event, a model release form is generally not required. If you are staging photos or a video for a project, it is a good idea to have your models sign this Photo/Video 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.
Filming or Taking Photos On Campus
Approval to film or photograph on University of Memphis property is required for internal and external parties. Please complete this form and email it to email@example.com and you will be contacted within two business days.
