If you are a new faculty or staff member of the College of Education, you may schedule a portrait to be taken by the UGA Division of Marketing & Communications in room 135 of the UGA Center for Continuing Education and Hotel.
Studio portraits are scheduled 1-2 p.m. on Mondays and 8:30-10 a.m. Thursdays. There are no walk-ins. Detailed directions will be included when your portrait request is confirmed. You can pick a specific day and time, a day only, and they will find the best time, or leave the date and time up to them and only provide a deadline. Photographic Services asks that you plan your appointment at least two weeks in advance and allow three business days for confirmation of your request.
Most of the information has been auto-filled and you can skip it. You only need to fill in the following:
- Subject details (your name, affiliation, and email address)
- Scheduling details (note the studio portrait times)
Because of issues we've had in the past with the quality and variety of images submitted, we no longer permit the College of Education faculty and staff to change their profile photos. If you have a professionally taken photograph that you want to use as your directory photo, you may submit a copy for approval (opens new window). We will review all submitted portraits to determine if they meet the requirements before we post them. Some common reasons photos are not approved include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Too Small
A portrait needs to be high resolution (no pixelation or blurriness) and must be at least 600 pixels wide and 800 pixels tall. Bigger is better. Please do not attempt to resize or crop yourself. We will process your image as needed.
- Lighting and Color
Your face should be clearly visible with no shadows or obstructions. Also, we require portraits that are in color.
Please do not submit candid photos, "selfies," or a photo in which another person was cropped out.
- Busy Backgrounds
Professional portraits look great when the background isn't distracting so we typically use a solid-colored or blurred background, whether it's indoors or outdoors.
We appreciate your help and cooperation.
