Our Photography Department offers a wide variety of high-quality photographic services at reasonable prices. Our staff consists of two professional photographers who can capture your special event or create custom images for your publications. Our photography services include the following:

Medical Photography

Our photographers are available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday to photograph surgical procedures in the operating room, specimens in surgical pathology, and patients in the clinic. We can also photograph patients in our studio for documentation of various medical conditions, such as mole mapping for dermatology patients.

Location Photography

Our staff goes on location to various special events during and after our regular business hours. We photograph luncheons, dinner receptions, guest speakers, press conferences, symposia, annual department group photos, campus buildings, environmental cityscapes, and stock photos for use in promotional materials and on websites.
