Request a Photographer
The Creative Services Department maintains relationships with a group of freelance photographers and videographers familiar to the Villanova University community. We are able to assist with pre-production needs, contracts and the various legal releases that are required to ensure the viability of imagery for the University archive. We also facilitate all billing functions for these vendors. Based on your needs, the fees start at $150 per hour. All of our photographers and videographers charge by the full hour. For larger scale shoots, we do have the ability to negotiate day-long rates. Please allow at least 7 business days to schedule a photographer for an event.

Request for Stock Image(s)
Creative Services maintains a library of stock images that is updated on a continuous basis. Images are approved for a single project use (print, web, framed prints, presentation) to prevent overexposure in university publications and to maximize the impact of the images in your publication. We will research, retouch and provide the image(s) via our online delivery system. Please allow 5-7 business days for your request to be processed and your image(s) to be delivered. Should you require the images in a shorter time frame there will be a rush fee from $10-$50 to process your request.
