We provide free studio headshots to UT Knoxville faculty, staff, and students by appointment only on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8:15–10:15 a.m. in our studio in 91 Communications Building. Our university photographer sets the appointment openings based on his availability week to week. Please check back if you don’t see your desired date and time. Students must have a university-related need for a headshot and have a faculty or staff member make the appointment for them.
