The University Photographers keep very busy. Please schedule photographers or order a service as far in advance as possible to insure availability and avoid rush charges. Normal turnaround for service orders is two weeks. This can vary by our workload and the size of your order. Rush charges of up to 100% apply to service orders that require less than two weeks to fulfill.

A price list for time and services will be posted as soon as it is available.
