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).
