Photography Checklist
  • Where do you want your shoot to take place? You can choose anywhere on campus or have your photo taken in The ORU Marketing Photography Studio, located on the first floor of the LRC in room LRC144.
  • What should I wear/bring? Choose a solid-color top. The colors that photograph best are red, green and blue. If you have worn a color in the past that people have complimented you on, wear that color.

Please do not wear:

  • An all-white, all-black or all-gray top*.
  • Neon colors.
  • Bold patterns.
  • A shirt with a logo, unless it’s an ORU logo.

* If the background is white, grays and some blacks might be just fine. An all-white shirt is fine to wear under a sweater, or a suit jacket and tie.

  • Please bring any personal items, such as an iron, brush, handheld mirror, makeup or hairspray. 
  • How long will my photo shoot take? Environmental portraits (indoors/outdoors) take about 15-30 minutes per person. Studio portraits are taken only for special needs. Most ORU portraits will be on location.
  • ORU Marketing does not supply I.D., Visa or Passport photos.
Group Photos
  • Make sure your group doesn’t exceed 25 to 50 people per shot, so all faces are easily recognizable.
  • If possible, ask all members of your group to wear similar clothing styles.
  • If you’re being photographed outside, consider scheduling an early morning or late-afternoon shoot to avoid wind, or excessive heat or cold.
  • If you’d like to be photographed indoors, choose a room big enough to accommodate lighting equipment and your entire group.
  • Make sure everyone you want in the photo is present.
  • Are you using these photos for Web, Print, Tradeshow, Social Media, or other?
  • Provide the photographer with prop requests, pose requests, background requests, and others.
Event Coverage
  • Time and place.
  • If serving food please let the photographer know if food is being provided for him/her.
  • Please provide as much detailed information as possible: describe image, name of person featured, subject of image, etc.
  • How far in advance do I need to schedule, and how long will it take to get the final photos?
