The UTHSC website is being migrated to a new design. We appreciate your patience as we bring our layout up-to-date!

To make a change to an existing UTHSC webpage or to request a new webpage, please send requests to Requests are completed on a first come, first served basis. Webmaster email requests for text changes or document replacement are usually completed within 24 hours. 

Photography Requests

  • UTHSC does not currently have a full-time position dedicated to photography.
  • Our staff can provide 30 minutes of photography for a handful of UTHSC events each year. All photography requests are subject to photographer availability at the requested time.
  • In many cases a referral may be made to a local freelance photographer. To inquire about event photography or to request a list of freelance photographers, contact for additional information.
  • Due to the high number of requests and limited staff, please schedule photography two weeks in advance.

Notice: Please note that the scope of photography services for our department has changed. We no longer cover departmental assignments such as speakers, dinners, receptions, conferences, student headshots, or passport photos, unless the photos of the event are needed for marketing purposes such as the University website, social media, or alumni magazines.

Studio Portraits

Please contact to schedule your portrait. We are not able to provide studio portraits for students at this time other than the new student photos taken during orientations.

Where is the photo taken?
Faculty and Staff headshots are taken in the Communications and Marketing Office located at 920 Madison Avenue, Suite 810.
When can I have a headshot taken?
Headshots are take on Tuesdays from 10:00 to 12:00 pm and Thursdays from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. We ask that you email with a specific time you intend to come in during those hours.
Will I receive a copy of the photo?

An email with a link to download your photo will be sent to the email address you list on the sheet when signing in for your headshot. If there is another person the link should be given to as well, please provide that email address and let the photographer know.

If you have already taken your headshot, and did not receive a link, please email with your name and the date you came in, and we can provide you a copy of the photo.

When will I receive my photo?
Headshots will be sent to the email address provided at sign-in within 10 business days after the photoshoot.
Can you Photoshop my picture?
Due to the large volume of photos, we do not do extensive retouching. Every headshot does get a softening filter, color correction, and cropping.
What should I wear for my headshot?

We recommend wearing solid colors. The photo backdrop is a light gray, so avoid wearing whites and light gray tones. 

  • Men should wear a collared, button-down or polo-style shirt.
  • Any blouse worn should have sleeves.
  • A jacket or sport coat also looks polished in professional portraits.
  • For clinical faculty, we request that faculty also bring their UTHSC white coat. Our office also has branded UTHSC white coats available to borrow in sizes 38, 40, and 42.
Can students have headshots made?
We do not offer student headshots at this time. However, our office does provide composite photos for students at their program orientation.

Our office does not offer passport photo services at this time.
I already have a photo, can I take another?
If they have already taken a headshot with our office, we ask that faculty and staff wait a minimum of one year before requesting a new headshot.
