The CALS Office of External Relations offers strategic photography and videography services. It is the role of the CALS visual communications specialist to capture photographs and video footage that support the news and editorial goals of the office. The CALS visual communications specialist will generally be assigned for the following purposes:
- When photos or video are needed or desired for the college’s news and marketing purposes, including publications, news releases, and college websites. Examples include: Grow
magazine, fundraising materials, eCALS, and the CALS home page.
- When photos or video are needed for external media who request photos of CALS experts, events or topics to accompany media stories.
- To provide photo or video documentation of certain annual or special college events. Examples include CALS Awards and CALS Honorary Recognition.
- To provide portrait sessions for CALS faculty, staff, and graduate students who need simple “headshots.” Three or four portrait sessions will be offered each year. Dates will be announced
Please contact the Office of External Relations if you know of a CALS-related event, story, or photography need that aligns with the above purposes.
