The UCM photographer tells the university’s story through imagery—showcasing the best of AU through print and digital media. Photos increase AU’s visibility and build community among students, alumni, donors, and higher education peers. UCM ensures that all images of our university highlight the value of AU and reflect exceptional quality.
UCM provides illustrative photography for advertising, marketing, websites, and print materials such as American magazine and the Annual Report. The UCM photographer takes photos of commencement and other university events, as well as professional head shots of faculty and staff. We also provide recommendations on artistic, technical, and legal considerations. Finally, we review requests to reuse filed images.
Although UCM is unable to accommodate all the photography requests we receive, we can recommend freelance photographers with whom we have relationships.
