Photography

Great photography tells great stories.

The Office of Communications and Marketing provides photographic services to meet the needs of university offices through a library of university stock photography, a studio headshot service, and custom photography for selected projects. To learn more about brand guidance for photography, see the brand website.

Photo Library

Faculty and staff who need photographs for official use can request access to the university’s Asset Bank photo library. This database of photos is searchable by keyword and includes campus buildings and scenics, academics and research, student life, etc.

To access these images, talk with a communications professional in your department or college, or request an account here.

Headshots

Studio headshots are for UT Knoxville permanent faculty and staff only. They are created in our studio in 91 Communications Building on Tuesdays from 9:00 to 11:00 am on a first come first serve basis. We ask that departments do not send more than five people at a time to help with congestion.

For questions about accessibility or to request accommodations, call 865-974-0765. Advance notice of need for accommodations is requested.

Custom Photography

Custom photography is provided for documenting university-wide events, major marketing initiatives, and other projects handled through the Office of Communications and Marketing. For smaller-scale projects and events, it is recommended that units arrange for a freelance photographer.
