Request Photography Services

The College Communications Office captures photography to support the strategic goals of the college. We prioritize photography that advances efforts to tell the college’s story to the broadest possible audience, enhances the college’s website and social media platforms, supplements news stories that appear on the homepage of the website, and appears in print and digital pieces that reach primary audiences, including prospective students and alums. The Davidson College Visual Identity & Brand Assets Guide addresses how photography supports the identity and mission of the college. 

Other requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

For photography requests, please use the form—note that filling out the form does not guarantee the photographer will be able to fulfill the request. We require at least two weeks advance notice for all requests. The photographer will contact you once your request has been reviewed.

Please contact Chris Record at with any changes to the date, time or location of your shoot.

Head Shot Requests 

College Communications schedules professional head shot sessions in the fall and spring. If you need a new head shot, please add yourself to the list. We will follow up with you via email when sessions are announced. Please do not use the photo request form for head shot requests.
