Photography and Digital Images

The Office of Marketing and Communication's university photographer can be scheduled for official faculty/staff photographs or for coverage of a university event. This includes basic video requests.

If the university photographer cannot be present at an event, a freelance photographer may be hired by the University Relations office or the requesting department as a replacement. Expenses vary and unless the images are desired for use in University Relations or for marketing/communications materials, the costs incurred are the requesting department’s responsibility.

Please share information about your event(s) well in advance so we may add it to our editorial calendar and potentially plan greater strategic coverage and/or promotion.

Photo Inventory and Requests

The university photographer maintains an inventory of digital images for campus use. 

To request coverage, submit to our editorial calendar, or request photos/links, please contact Marie Fenstermacher, secretary, Marketing and Communications at mfenster@kutztown.edu or 484-634-5839. Please provide at least ten working days’ notice for coverage requests.
