Request Photography Services

We prioritize photographs that advance efforts to tell the college’s story to the broadest possible audience, enhance the college’s website and social media platforms, supplement news stories that appear on the homepage of the website, and appear in pieces that reach primary audiences, including the Davidson Journal magazine and admission materials.

When possible, the photographer will be available to fulfill other requests for photos from academic offices and administrative departments.

For photography requests, please use the form below—note that filling out the form does not guarantee the photographer will be able to fulfill the request. We require at least two weeks advance notice for all requests. The photographer will contact you once your request has been reviewed.

Please contact Chris Record at with any changes to the date, time or location of your shoot.

Professional Headshots 

Professional headshot sessions will be scheduled throughout the year. Specific dates and times for professional headshot sessions will be designated by College Communications, and those opportunities will be communicated to faculty and staff.

Individual photo sessions will be scheduled as-needed, refer to headshot best practices, or complete the form on this page.

Employees who want to add/update their headshot on the college website should upload their image to the New Employee Profile Form.

Photo Ownership

All photos taken by the college photographer are subject to become part of the college’s photographic archive and may be shared with other offices and departments. Davidson College owns and retains the copyright to all images. Photos may not be published, sold, reused, or modified in whole or part without prior express written consent from College Communications.
