Lewis & Clark does not have a staff photographer, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have wonderful photos that capture the look and feel of our campuses! We have an extensive digital library of images taken by professional photographers for use in your communications.

If you need professional photos for a project you are working on, the Office of Communications can help in a variety of ways:

  1. Download what you need from our Image Media Bank on Google Drive. This is a collection of “best of” shots from around the institution. These images are sorted by category—athletics, overseas, academics, etc.—and are refreshed on a regular basis.
  2. Request access to our digital library. If you don’t see what you need on Google Drive, you can browse everything we have. Email Art Director Amy Drill to get started. Warning: We have tens of thousands of images, and browsing can quickly become overwhelming! If you can find something that works for you, we’ll be able to supply it in the format that you need for your project.
  3. Specific image request? We can help! Our office works with several professional photographers on a freelance basis and can coordinate photography for your large event. We’re also happy to point you in the direction of a professional photographer or help you find a student on your own when that makes the most sense! Email Art Director Amy Drill to get started.

Images for Print

If you are providing our office with a photo for a print project or are printing something on your own, be mindful of resolution issues. The bigger the file, the better it is for print purposes. To ensure good quality for publication, it is important to make sure all digital images are at least 5 inches by 7 inches at 300 dpi.
