Faculty and staff interested in arranging for photography for a print or web project have several options. The University’s Flickr accounts offer a broad range of photos that you can easily download. See below.

Photographer Availability

After you have reviewed the URI Flickr photos, you may decide that custom photography would better meet your needs.

URI Staff Photographer

The University has one staff photographer whose photo assignments focus on University priorities by providing images that relate to the President’s Transformational Goals, the Academic Strategic Plan, and the Community Equity and Diversity Strategic Plan.  The URI staff photographer is not available for staff and faculty headshots.

Freelance Photographer

If the staff photographer is unavailable, you may opt to hire a freelance photographer at your own expense.  When hiring a photographer with state funds, you must hire from the state’s Master Price Agreement (MPA).

Requesting Photography

To request photography from the staff photographer, please complete the following form. Once your request is reviewed, you will be notified that staff photography services can be provided for your project or you will be guided to consult the state’s Master Price Agreement to hire a freelance photographer.
