UCM has staff resources to offer centralized photographic services to the campus community. Like most agencies, UCM has moved to an all-digital environment (shooting and archiving). Contact us for any of your photographic needs.
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 (pre-scheduled each month)
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.
UCM now provides pre-scheduled, monthly headshots for all Oakland University employees. There is no charge for this service. Employees will have their high-res photo retouched and completed within 1-2 weeks after the photo shoot occurs. Please complete the following information to reserve a date. All headshots take place in Anibal House at 10 a.m. (please allow about 1 hour for the entire process, depending on how many people sign-up each month).
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 these low prices:
4 x 6 size = $.26 each
5 x 7 size = $.65 each
8 x 10 size = $1.75 each
Special sizes are also available. Shipping is $7 (or free if your order totals $50 or more); $15 for 2-day delivery; and $30 for overnight delivery. When the photos are received in UCM, 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.
