Montana State University Photography

The mission of University Communications is to enhance MSU's public image, increase the public's awareness of MSU's accomplishments and develop consistent communications that build the university's reputation with its many constituents.

The award-winning photographers at University Communications travel the campus and beyond to capture the MSU story. We strive to meet most strategic photo needs on campus and on a more limited basis provide video concept and production to support major university initiatives. If our photographers are unavailable to fulfill a request, we maintain a network of highly skilled freelance photographers we can recommend to assist with your project.

Portraiture for faculty and staff are available free of charge at 423 Culbertson Hall by appointment. Please visit to schedule your appointment. These sessions are for individuals only. Please follow the link "start a project" below to arrange a group portrait or for information regarding large numbers of staff portraits for your department.

We are happy to assist with photography for your department’s next marketing initiative. We request that you begin any project involving marketing by speaking with the MSU Marketing department who can assist you with concept, branding, design and coordinate the photography and video needs. 

Visit the MSU Photo Store where you can purchase the official, licensed, gallery-quality display prints featuring MSU. Don’t see what you need in the library? Submit a request for stock photography or video and we’ll be happy to search our archives for you.
