If a picture's worth a thousand words, we could go on for days! Our multimedia team provides a window into the amazing things happening on our campus. Focused on capturing a dynamic, authentic and intricate view into life at CMU, we use an artful eye to tell the visual story of our shared experiences and successes.  

Crucial to the task of telling the authentic CMU story, the visual content we create aligns with, supports and elevates the university's brand and leadership standards through all university communication and marketing strategies.

Our services

Due the limited availability of our photo and video staff, requests for imaging should be reserved for situations that are outward facing and help further the department and college and the university's brand.

If you request photo and/or video services, you will be responsible for helping secure access to subjects and obtaining photography releases.

If we are unavailable for an event, an approved freelance photographer/videographer may be recommended at the cost of the college or department requesting service.

CMU faculty and staff may request downloads of images for official use by visiting the Central Michigan University Photo Source.
