Scheduling A Photo Shoot

MCS Photography uses an online request form to schedule appointments for on-location shoots and faculty/staff portraits. Please keep the following in mind when submitting the request form:

  • Advance planning and communication are essential to a successful photo shoot.
  • Scheduling is determined and requests are accepted based on the availability of our photographers.
  • Your assistance may be required to photograph your students in your academic settings. If you use student models, you must complete and submit a media waiver [PDF].
  • Please be aware that some photos may be used for university marketing purposes.
  • Additionally, please note that it is the responsibility of the requester, not URC Photography, to archive photos.
