The Office of Communications and Brand Marketing supports University photography needs by offering student photographers to cover on-campus events, and referrals to professional photographers for more high-level projects. The OCM team does not have an in-house photographer.

The UIW Office of Communications and Brand Marketing employes student employees who may provide archival photography for on-campus events. Requests should be submitted at least 3 workdays in advance. Please note, a request does not guarantee the availability of a student employee to photograph your event.

The Office of Communications and Brand Marketing recommends hiring partner photographers for formal or otherwise notable events. If you are interested in hiring a photographer for your event, please email for third-party photographer recommendations and contact information.
