Photography

eTech provides photography services to A&S departments upon request, depending on availability of personnel and resources. We take photos of events sponsored by units of the College of Arts and Sciences, and of departmental personnel and activities for use on websites we build. We also photograph faculty and staff members who need photos for professional purposes.

How to Request Photo Services

Complete our request form on etechphotos.appointy.com.

If you want a photo from a website or a past event, email Lisa Yessick, director of digital content, at lisa.yessick@ua.edu.

What to Know about eTech’s Photo Services

Make your request as early as possible; at least two weeks’ notice is ideal. We cannot honor requests made on the day of the event. Availability of photo services depends on the schedules of our photographers, who are students, which means they work limited hours and must prioritize classes above all else.

Be aware that during certain times of the year, our photographers may be less available than usual. These times include the last few class days before a vacation or the end of a semester; exam week; summer; and the first week of the fall and spring semesters.

Please respond promptly to all email from eTech staff regarding your request or reservation. Failure to do so could result in cancellation of your reservation.

If UA administration decides to close campus due to inclement weather or some other circumstance, all reservations will be canceled without notice as of the officially announced closing time.

Depending on workload, our photographers may need a week or more to edit photos. We make every attempt to edit photos according to urgency of need, so if you must have your photo by a specific date, please send Lisa Yessick an email (lisa.yessick@ua.edu) explaining your need. We will do everything possible to get your photo to you by that date.

While we strive to meet the photo needs of all A&S faculty and staff, we reserve the right to refuse any request that falls outside our mandate from the A&S dean or that places excessive demand on our staff or student workers.
