Photography & Video Production

Overview

Our multimedia staff collaborates with members of the campus community to illustrate the University's people, intellectual endeavors, events and places through photography and video, in formats including print, web and social media.

Photo Services

If you are looking for a photo or series of photos, it's possible that the images reside in our photo library, which is available to all University employees. Contact our photo archivist to get a login and get help identifying the image(s) you need.

If you are seeking new photography, we have experience in portraiture, studio photography, classroom and campus photography, event photography and photo editing. We can advise on the best approaches, locations, times and equipment for a photo shoot.

We charge University departments flat rates for photo shoots. All assignments completed by University photographers and freelancers become part of our photo library and may be shared with other offices and departments at Princeton.

If members of our team are unavailable, we can advise you on working with trusted freelancers and help you arrange a shoot.

Video Services

We focus primarily on producing videos for princeton.edu and the University's main social media accounts, telling stories about Princeton's faculty and students' academic and co-curricular activities. Members of our team are available to consult on departments' video strategy, equipment and projects. As time allows, we also produce videos for campus departments on a cost-recovery basis

We also publish videos made by students and departments on princeton.edu; if you would like to submit a video, please review our submission guidelines
