Physical Master Plan Photograph Request

Physical Master Plan Photograph Request

We need your help in photographing all of campus. We are updating the university Physical Master Plan and need photographs of open space, buildings (exterior and interior), and activities across campus. We are especially interested in photographs with people. We will be selecting photographs for inclusion in the Physical Master Plan publication and future publications based on how well the photos express campus life and illustrate master planning themes from A Campus of Neighborhoods and Paths. These photos will provide a valuable record though time of our campus.

Enter as many photographs as you’d like. The more quality photographs that are submitted the better chance of having one selected for publication.

Here are a few helpful tips:

  • Enter the highest resolution photograph that your camera is able to take.
  • Take photos in all seasons with people to help provide context.
  • Do not resize, crop, or make color and exposure corrections to your photos as these

    adjustments will be made for you.

  • If your camera is able to take raw files please submit them in addition to the jpegs.
  • Take the best picture you can, however, the content is most important; concentrate on capturing

    the right moment or view rather than creating the perfect picture. Submit your Photos on CD/DVD and release form to:
