Photo request process

CSU Monterey Bay has a university photographer available to work directly with academic departments and administrative offices to create photographs for a variety of needs. Our photographer provides services according to University Advancement goals and priorities. At times, other photographers may be available for small events and to assist the university photographer.

Requesting new marketing photos

Requests are given priority based on availability of university photographer and in agreement with University Advancement goals. These include major university events and celebrations, marketing and promotional photos, campus news, notable guests and supporters, and campus environment. Photography may be subject to staff availability for colleges and departments, academic programs, activities, events, student life, classroom environments, and off-campus events.

Please use our project request form to request photography or existing marketing photos.

Event Photos

Event coordinators who want a photographer to be present for the duration of the event should plan and budget to hire the services of an approved university photography service provider. A list of approved photography service providers may be obtained from University Affairs, Ceremonies, and Events.

Historical photos

Archival and historical photos may be viewed in the Digital Commons @ CSUMB. For questions about Digital Commons photos, email the Digital Commons team in the CSUMB Library.
