Photography and Videography

WSU Spokane offers photography and videography services across the campus community.

Units affiliated with the College of Medicine are encouraged to submit requests here.

Please note that depending on the number of requests in our queue and existing timelines, we may not be able to meet all requests.


For new hires and existing faculty and staff needing updated profile portraits, fill out our portrait request form. If you have an immediate media need for a professional portrait that cannot be accommodated with the portrait sessions provided, please fill out the appropriate photography services link and explain in the description.

Safety Requirements for Photo and Video Shoots

Photos and videos used to illustrate research activities on the WSU Spokane campus should model best practices in safety, including wearing personal protective equipment. When safety precautions portrayed in research images/footage are deemed insufficient by University Communications, those images cannot be used in news releases, marketing collateral, and other external communications.

For that reason, the WSU Spokane Communications Office requests that all participants who are photographed or filmed in a laboratory setting wear safety eye protection (beyond prescription glasses), gloves, and a buttoned-up lab coat. In addition, participants must also have long hair pulled back, beards trimmed, and adhere to safety precautions related to jewelry, scarves, and fingernail care. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Guidance for Photos of Animals & Human Bodies

In respect of the donors and animals who play an important role in educating our students and reducing undue risk to WSU Spokane or the respective health science colleges (Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, College of Nursing, and College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences), these guidelines should be followed when taking photographs or using photographs of animals or human bodies for marketing and communication purposes.
