The mission of University Communications is to enhance Montana State University's public image, increase the awareness of the university's accomplishments and develop consistent communications that build the university's reputation with its many constituents. Engaging photography is an opportunity to tell the Montana State University story.

The award-winning photographers in MSU Visual Media travel the campus and beyond to tell the MSU story through still photography, video and multi-media production. Our staff are critical team-members of any strategic project and can offer recommendations and support in partnership with MSU University Communications.

We are happy to assist with photography for your department’s next communications 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.
