UM preferred supplier photographers

Photography plays an important role in UM communications. Strong, carefully selected photos illustrate who we are and contribute to our profile and image.

For photography assignments, UM works with selected preferred supplier photographers. These photographers have relevant prior training (usually art academy or photo academy), operate professionally and are familiar with UM’s house style and image-editing requirements and guidelines. UM has made agreements with them on image and portrait rights, and they have consented to our central purchasing conditions (ARVODI). This guarantees that they will carry out the assignment in accordance with the university’s guidelines and there will be no unpleasant surprises later in terms of invoicing or usage rights.

The preferred supplier photographers all have their own characteristics, specialties and rates. There are photographers who have developed a clear style of their own and this must, of course, be a good fit for the photography assignment and the client’s expectations. For advice on which photographer is most suitable for your assignment, please contact the central image editor.

The list of UM preferred supplier photographers is updated and expanded regularly.
