MAC has staff resources to offer the campus community centralized photo and video services. Requests must be made two weeks prior to the event date. If your needs occur within two weeks of the requested date, we cannot guarantee availability due to previously scheduled events. 

Tips to optimize your event coverage

  • When completing the request form, please specify what the photos will be used for. Additional direction helps the photographer ensure they are providing images that will meet your needs.
  • Requesting photography coverage during meal times is not recommended.
  • Typical image turnaround is two to three days. 


The following assignments are photographed free of charge to support the goals of the university:

  • Photographs for use in university communications print and web.
  • Photographs to accompany news stories/releases.
  • Portraits that are required for news-related stories.

The following requests are considered billable requests:

  • Photographic coverage for departmental print and web materials.
  • Portraits for individuals or department needs.
  • Videography needs/requests that fall outside of news-related communications.
  • Social events, including receptions, dinners, retirement and going away parties, awards banquets and conferences.

Photography/videography rate

MAC staff photographer/videographer hourly rate: $31/hour. 

If MAC cannot assist with your photography/videography needs, we can provide contact information for a local, freelance photographer that may be able to facilitate your request.
