Photography, Videography and Drones

Quality photographs are critical to first impressions, whether used on a website or in a publication. Fuzzy, poorly cropped snapshots have no place in Emory & Henry communications; they do not reflect well on the quality of our programs. Photography for all external communications will be provided by the MarComm 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.

Students, Employees and Guests on Campus/Photos and Video Publication Policy
Emory & Henry College may at times use 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 College in writing.

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 accordingly.

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 MarComm 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. The MarComm Office has professional photos and drone photos on file that may be available upon request.
