Requesting Photographic Coverage

The college photographer is available to photograph college events and individuals for official Dickinson marketing initiatives and publicity. Priority is given to assignments that have the greatest benefit to the college. There is no charge for the photographer’s time. If the photographer is unavailable, the office can recommend a freelance photographer; the client is responsible for contacting the freelance photographer and paying for services. For your event to be considered, please complete the project-request form.

Requesting Portrait Sittings

Portrait sittings are scheduled on the third Wednesday of each month during the academic year from 1 to 4 p.m. and are booked in 15-minute increments. If several individuals in one department or unit are requesting portraits, we ask that they be grouped in one-hour blocks. There is no fee for this service. Each individual will receive a digital file at both 72 dpi (for Web) and 300 dpi (for print). Portrait sittings may be requested by completing the project-request form.
