Marketing & Communication Services

Photography & Videography

To request photos or videos, submit your request two weeks prior to the event using our Photo & Video Request Form.

Because SMU does not employ a full-time staff photographer or videographer, priority will be given to events and photos/videos for which there is a broad external marketing purpose (publications, advertising, the web, etc.). First priority will be given to projects that have a high return on investment and are meant for carefully targeted or mass media audiences. Photography and/or video coverage is not guaranteed. If we cannot accommodate your photo request, we will suggest a professional freelance photographer (at the requesting department’s expense).

In Winona, you may also check out a digital camera from the Marketing & Communication Office to take your own photos; video cameras are available for checkout from the iT HelpDesk.

Depending on availability of staff, video editing may be done by marketing and communication staff in Winona even if you shoot your own event. Video footage shot by our offices must be edited by our staff. Please be aware that, depending on the expectations for the final product, video editing may take up to one month’s time.
