Please consider the following when requesting jobs:
Sometimes jobs arise that need outside processing. All attempts are made to complete jobs inhouse, however, external photography costs may occur and can be quite expensive. In cases where costs are above and beyond the limits of the Media Center budget, individual Departmental Chairs will be notified of anticipated costs that will need to be funded by the requestor’s department. (see Criteria for Media Center requests, Outside Processing Needs).
When requesting photography services, please consider the following factors:
Large photography projects require a preliminary meeting with the Media Center staff and all individuals involved in the final editing process. Large projects can take weeks to complete, especially when overlapping with the photographer’s other responsibilities. Faculty and staff requesting work are responsible for having subjects contact the photographer. Please allow 1 hour for each location shoot.
Photos of patients with noteworthy conditions will be made immediately upon telephone request if the photographer is available. If the photographer is not available and the patient is scheduled for a repeat visit, an effort to take the photo at that time will be made. A digital camera also is available for use by the clinician requesting work. (see Digital and Video Camera Loaner Policies.)
Faculty and staff may request assistance in any aspect of digital imaging: scanning, emailing, manipulating and outputting images. The media center is currently upgrading its equipment so please allow for limited memory and color management capabilities at this time. Images for the web require special considerations; please refer to our separate tipsheet for more information. For cross-platforming and transferring between programs, consult the Media Center.
At this time, the Media Center will take slides of images in a book only if proof of copyright permission can be demonstrated. The Media Center will not make slide duplications of images without prior permission from the copyright holder to do so. The Media Center will continue to make slide duplicates of any work that is the property (copyright) of the requestor.
(Copies from slides)
In incidents where the copyright of the original slide is held by the requestor, multiple copies can be created. If you anticipate needing more than 1 from your own original, please request additional copies at that time. Slide dupes can sometimes be difficult to match exactly, so it is best to have all copies made at the same time.
