Portrait Requests

We invite Michigan Tech faculty, staff, and graduate students to have their complementary, traditional portrait taken during one of our three to five annual sessions. The number of sessions offered varies based on studio staff availability. You will receive your photo four to six weeks after the session.

Scheduled Portrait Sessions

Scheduled traditional portrait sessions are announced multiple times through Tech Today several weeks in advance. As sessions are determined, information will also be shared below.

Four sessions were completed in Fall 2020. Check back later for further information on Spring 2021 portrait sessions.

Check back for new information or reach out to photoservices@mtu.edu if you have questions.

Professional Portrait Requests

To manage costs, we are unable to offer individual traditional portraits on-demand. Instead, we may be able to provide individual non-traditional portraits for high-impact, external uses based on studio staff availability. You can request a non-traditional portrait through our online request form. Please provide several unique time/date options and allow seven to 10 (business) days advanced notice to increase our ability to accommodate your request.

If staff is unavailable for a non-traditional portrait, you need several portraits taken, or if you need a traditional portrait and cannot make one of our sessions, please have your department contact Brockway Photography to schedule a session and purchase portraits. We recommend asking any outside vendor about their safety practices.

Group Portrait Requests

We cover group portraits based on availability—with priority given to requests used for large, external initiatives that enhance the University's recruitment or reputation initiatives. You can request a group portrait through our online request form. Please provide several unique time/date options and allow seven to 10 (business) days advanced notice to increase our ability to accommodate your request.

If you need several group portraits or if your needs are internally focused, have a smaller scope, or do not support the University's recruitment or reputation initiatives, please contact Brockway Photography to schedule a session and purchase portraits. We recommend asking any outside vendor about their safety practices.
