Photography is a powerful storytelling tool and the images that we use convey the message of UNLV — what we do and who we are. They communicate visually what words alone cannot. The Photo Services unit provides photographic support for all university communication activities. The unit also provides counsel and photo services to campus units.

Services offered include: Portraits (offered at set times weekly), editorial and event photography, and specialty photography such as architectural and illustrative.

  • Hourly Rate: $75.00 - all images included (basic touchup/editing only - more involved editing requests will incur additional fees)
  • Overtime & Weekend Rate: $100 - all images included (basic touchup/editing only - more involved editing requests will incur additional fees)
  • Digital images from the archive: $20 each, - bulk discount may apply
    • We also offer a $1,000 annual archive access that provides unlimited downloadable access to images within our archive. This works well for clients with large, or recurring image order needs.
  • Production Time: An additional 50 percent of the total hours booked for photo will automatically be added to cover time for editing and delivery (1/2 hour minimum). For example: Two hours of photography will have 1 hour of editing added to the project for a total of three billable hours.
  • Headshots: $75 flat fee, which includes one digital image of your choice. Additional images are billed at $20 each. Up to 5 individuals can be shot within an hour block for a discounted price. Please inquire for details.

Video Production

Video is an emotional and engaging medium that we produce to offer insight into our campus, our core beliefs, and the work being done at UNLV. While there are many units and entities producing UNLV-related video content, videos that market the image and reputation of the university directly are what set the standard for how our brand is represented in this medium. The quality of these videos must be high, and the brand aesthetic must remain consistent. To see how our brand is represented in video form, visit
