Monthly Studio Portrait Sessions

New studio portraits are taken two consecutive days a month at the Office of Marketing Communications in the Wesley Building. Exceptions include semi-annual faculty portrait events at other venues and summer scheduling.

We produce free studio portraits of:

  • Faculty
  • Distinguished and named professors
  • Faculty Speakers Bureau participants
  • Deans and directors
  • KU Communicators
  • New Manager Orientation participants
  • Faculty and students receiving national awards
  • Faculty whose activities are of interest to major news outlets or KU News stories
  • Staff of the offices of the chancellor and provost

To schedule a portrait, call Marketing Communications, 864-3256. Each sitting takes 15 minutes and must be set by appointment.

Marketing Communications is in the Wesley Building, east across Jayhawk Boulevard from the Kansas Union and behind Smith Hall.

Please note: The portrait studio is accessible only by stairs, so persons with special needs should call 864-8862 about options at other locations.

Cost

For websites and other projects funded by departments, staff portraits cost $30 each (state funds). A staff portrait paid with private funds costs $43.50.

Payment by interdepartmental SOV, check or money order is required. Credit-card transactions are not possible.

Scheduling

Portrait days are 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1:15 to 4:45 p.m. on the second Thursday of every month. Appointments are required. Please schedule your portrait well in advance, as only 28 persons may be accommodated each session. Upcoming studio portrait days:

New and returning faculty will be invited by email to special sessions on other days and in other locations.

Wardrobe

Business attire in neutral grays or muted colors is best. Please remember:

  • Bold prints and patterns tend to distract from one’s face.
  • Herringbone or other weaves with narrow lines often appears distorted when displayed on a computer monitor.
  • Stark white or black is difficult to reproduce pleasingly.
  • Highly reflective jewelry or accessories tend to produce glare.
  • Low necklines often make subjects appear barely dressed in this head-and shoulders format.

Portrait delivery

Subjects will be provided a link to a series of frames and asked to select a single preferred photo. The Photo Department will deliver by email or passcode a high-resolution, color-corrected jpeg suitable for high-quality print media up to 5 by 7 inches (300-dpi). Under special circumstances, the subject may select a preferred frame immediately after the sitting.


Junior accounting major Drew Egan said his CIMBA study abroad trip to Italy allowed him to be both a scholar and a sightseer. CIMBA, the Consortium Institute of Management and Business Analysis, provides KU students with the opportunity to meet international leaders, tour local companies, attend musical events, and explore Italy on their own. During his trip, Egan visited many sites, including the Sistine Chapel. Here, he is seen with friends in front of the Vatican. Interested in applying? Applications are now open for the spring 2015 semester. http://bit.ly/1rx0B9v Tags: KU Study Abroad #exploreKU #KUstudents #StudyAbroad #Italy #Vatican #Travel #Business
