Requesting new photo or video projects
Bentley’s Marketing Team can help create new visuals (photos or videos) for your programs and events. To request support from the team, please fill out this online request form. Your request will be routed to a project manager who will review with our in-house producer. While we can’t support every request for an event photographer or custom video, we will follow up on all requests, providing other (outside) resources if need be. Please note: There may be fees associated with photo and video shoots that will be billed back to your department.
Faculty & staff headshots
Bentley Marketing schedules a photographer 3-4 times a year to take professional headshots of faculty and staff. Priority is given to new employees or employees who have not had a new headshot taken in several years. Emails will be sent to all faculty & staff when sessions are being scheduled. Photos are made available for review and download via WebDam (see above).
