Photography and Video
We do a LOT of photography—mostly hired photographers—it is almost always with a specific marketing piece in mind. Occasionally you’ll see a member of our MarComm team with a photo/video camera slung over our shoulder, but this is usually when a) we see potential uses for the photo and want to make sure we have it in our archive AND we are already going to be at that event (so it is no big deal to snap a few photos). Generally, however, we still bring in a professional from Vanderbilt Creative Services or an outside freelancer if we want “hero” photos/video for our marketing materials or complete coverage of an event, such as this one. This basically holds true for video as well.
So, a few options for you to consider:
- Vanderbilt Marketing: You can request event photography through Marcomm here: https://owen.wufoo.com/forms/studentclub-request-for-photo-or-video/. Marketing and Communications will contact Vanderbilt Creative Services or one of their student photographer to get your event covered. There is a chance they may not be able to do it, but it is worth a try. Cost: Free!
- Hire a Freelancer: We recommend several wonderful event photographers (see below). Prices are generally around $125-150 per hour with a one to two-hour minimum.
- Vanderbilt Information Technology Services: The person in charge of videotaping is John Brassil. If you want a lecture videotaped, you fill out the form below:
