UE Comm Photography Resources

The UE Comm team provides photo and video services as capacity allows.

  • Photo services include taking photos, editing select photos, and uploading photos to the Team Drive.
  • Video services: we have limited capacity to produce videos, in conformity with our selection criteria. Videography includes shooting, editing, and uploading. All videos must be captioned per UC Davis policy; units are responsible for captioning. 
  • Please review campus guidelines for photography.

  • Consent to Record: Photos and videos of specific students require completion of the Consent to Record form. Please review campus policy. The unit is responsible for obtaining signed forms. Please provide signed forms to the photographer/videographer.

Sources for photos: 

  • UC Davis campus photos: https://photos.ucdavis.edu/bp/

    • Thousands of high-resolution, professional quality photos taken by UC Davis’s photographers are available through the UC Davis photo DAM. Logging in via Kerberos will give you access to a much greater range of photos than is available to the public.

    • Photoshelter has an excellent lightbox tool for sharing assets within your team. 

  • UE Photo Collection:
    • The UE Photo Collection is stored on a Team Drive in the campus Google Drive. All UE staff including student staff may request access to the team drive. Please review the usage protocols.  You must access this through your UC Davis Google account. For security reasons, we will not grant permissions to personal Google accounts. 

    • By downloading our photos you are agreeing to UC Davis policies governing images of students.

  • External resources:

    • Google Images searches can yield useful photos, but images may be licensed. Use the tools to search for images marked for reuse, and be sure to follow any attribution guidelines.

    • Wikimedia Commons offers photographs that may be shared; be sure to follow attribution guidelines.

    • Stock photography purchased from companies such as Shutterstock or Getty Images may be useful.
