Photography, Videography and Drones

Quality photographs are critical to first impressions, whether used on a website or in a publication. Photography for all Emory & Henry external communications will be provided by the Marketing and Communications Office. The photography managed by the MarComm Office is used not only as illustration for external electronic and print publications, but also is documentation of the life of the College throughout the years and considered and managed as archival resources of the College.

Photography and Videography Publication Policy for Students, Employees and Guests on Campus
Emory & Henry College uses photographs, audio and/or video recordings of employees and students for purposes of education, publicity and student recruitment on behalf of the College, via the Internet, print publications, and other media.

*Upon their physical appearance at Emory & Henry campuses and events, visitors, as well as students and employees of the College, agree to release the rights for photography and videography of their image to be used by Emory & Henry College for the purpose of promotion of the College.

Should an employee or student (or the parents or guardians of such persons who are under the age of 18) NOT want to be photographed or recorded or have his/her name or “directory” information used in connection with any such recording, that person must notify the Emory & Henry Office of the Registrar in writing (as also stated in the official student handbook).

Individuals who choose to opt-out are also responsible for removing themselves from areas in which photography and/or recording is taking place, or notifying the camera operator of their opt-out status. Failure to do so may result in that individual’s inclusion in a photograph or recording and will be treated as consent for the College to utilize that photograph or recording in subsequent print or digital promotions for the College.

In addition, if a person consents to be used individually or in small groups and identified by name in any type of digital or print form, they will be given a Photo Consent Form by the photographer which must be completed and presented to the photographer who will make sure the consent is registered on file. Large group or event photography is exempt from this additional permission as described above.*

Use of Drones on the Emory & Henry Campus
As a private campus and college, no drones are allowed to fly on campus for aerial photography or videography without the approval of the Marketing and Communications Office. A one-page scope document that outlines how the photos will be used, what outlets, purpose, intent, length of time, etc., is required to apply for permission to fly. Once approved and on file, the shoot can be conducted safely and within all FAA UAS regulations. The MarComm Office will need to approve the photos/video selected and provide the proper logo marks if needed for the project. The MarComm Office has professional photos and drone photos on file that may be available upon request.
