University Communications is available for consultation regarding your photographic needs. Staff members fulfill photo requests as schedules allow.

Campus units and students may inquire about the Media Studio in the Miller Center B42 for their photography/videography projects. 

In addition, our office has point-and-shoot cameras available on a check-out basis.

Photo releases are not required for most photos taken at St. Cloud State. For high-level marketing products, however, consider acquiring written permission using a release form (.pdf). Our electronic release form is available for use during COVID-19 social distancing when images are being shared electronically instead of in person. Responses to the electronic release form are received by Anna Kurth in University Communications. If you are using the PDF form, please scan a copy of the form and submit it to Anna Kurth along with information on how the image will be used. 

For headshot requests, please fill out the photography request form. Through the academic year, headshots will only be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays by confirmed appointment.
