Event Assignments for Photography

Since Colby does not employ a college photographer, we are not able to accommodate photo needs beyond those for publications produced by the Office of Communications or for specific archival, documentary, and presentation purposes.

Freelancers or student photographers are hired by Communications to cover some lectures and news events, some athletic events, and prominent institutional events such as Lovejoy, Family Homecoming Weekend, and commencement.

Communications can provide a list of local photographers for you to hire to shoot your event. Anyone hiring student or freelance professional photographers will be responsible for every aspect of the shoot, including any scheduling and follow-up with photographers.

To find out if a photographer from Communications is covering an event, e-mail communications@colby.edu or call ext. 4350.
