The Office of Marketing & Communications provides photographic services for promotional
and marketing purposes of a campus-wide nature. The Office of Marketing & Communications also
produces official staff, faculty, and administration portraits, and team or group
photos, which are scheduled by appointment only.
Marketing & Communications’ first priority for photographic opportunities include: major college events, such as commencement, grand openings, etc.; notable guest lecturers; select sporting events; and opportunities for promotional photos, such as student award presentations. The images taken may be used (with photo credited to El Camino College) in The Union, news releases, admissions materials, and advertisements. They may also be used by the media with the permission of the Office of Marketing & Communications and must include the appropriate photo credit.
Official photographs, taken by the college’s photographer (or representative), may only be used for news and editorial purposes. They may not be used for commercial or personal use. Requests for photos must be submitted to the Office of Marketing & Communications, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Office of Marketing & Communications must receive a photo request with a minimum of two weeks’ notice.
Please note that submission of a photo request does not guarantee a photographer will be available. After your email request is received and reviewed, the publications supervisor will respond within two business days to your email request.
Please give at least 24 hours’ notice if your event is cancelled or postponed.
A Media Release Form must be completed by students photographed as individuals or
those who are easily identified in a small group shot. Generic group or campus photos
do not require a model release.
Please note: in accordance to Education Code section 54626: information may be made available to newspaper, magazine, radio, or television media and prospective employers for the purpose of reporting a student’s participation in officially recognized college activities and sports events or the student’s receipt of college degrees and awards.
