Photography Request

Requests for photography should be submitted at least two (2) weeks prior to the date requested. Marketing & Communications provides photography services for events that are likely to enhance SHSU’s reputation. For that reason, Marketing & Communications reserves the right to deny any requests for such services that do not support our university’s mission or meet our established criteria.

Business head shots and walk-in portrait days

We offer professional business portraits to faculty and staff. To accommodate the large number of requests, we offer walk-in portrait days. These are held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month in the Thomason Building, 100U4. As a courtesy, please email Brian Blalock at if you plan on taking a photo.

Model releases

If your content will be used to promote Sam Houston State University, all models will need to complete a model release form. Please have all models included in any promotional photoshoots complete the form and have it available for the photographer before the photoshoot begins.
