Photos and video are essential communication tools that can engage an audience and tell a story in a compelling and evocative way. But we know it's sometimes difficult to find the right photography or video to meet your needs. We can help you with portraits, custom event photography, event and speaker videos, and custom videos.
Use of photography or video taken on campus requires a release from the people who participated in the photo shoot or video.
Public Relations and Marketing Communications offers custom photography for Georgia State departments. Photography, including photography for events, requires a Request a Photographer form.
Our photographers shoot assignments that fulfill our strategic goals for the university. Here are some examples:
Social media needs
Major university events
Well planned and well framed photography is a huge asset in any communication project. Poorly planned and framed photography can diminish and detract from your work. Think carefully about the medium where you'll display your images and the elements you will need to capture to engage your audience. Ask for help if you need it.

If your college or department needs high-end video for promotional or social media purposes, the Public Relations and Marketing Communications video team can help. Formulate a creative brief of the project, as mentioned in the video guidelines section, that will include the project’s goal (why are you creating it), objectives, target audience, key messaging, tone, distribution, shelf life, production timeline and a comprehensive list of needed equipment, props and other resources.
Once a brief has been formulated, submit it to the Assistant Director of Video Production & New Media in Public Relations and Marketing Communications. It will be evaluated by the team, and it will be decided whether the production is feasible, can be produced in-house or requires an approved freelancer to assist.
