Office of Public Affairs

Photographic Services at Amherst College

As of 2006, Amherst College no longer employs a college photographer. The Office of Public Affairs only provides coverage for major college events (Convocation, Commencement, etc.), the Amherst website and Amherst Magazine.

For departments or individuals seeking on-campus photographic coverage, the Office of Public Affairs offers several options.

  • If you are looking for existing stock photography of campus, please visit our Flickr set.

  • Certain athletic events, major college events and performances are also photographed by the Office of Public Affairs and made available through Flickr.

  • If you would like to hire a professional photographer for your event, two options are available. The Office of Public Affairs maintains a list of available freelance photographers that can be obtained by calling (413)-542-2321. Please note that the hiring department is responsible for all fees.

    If you would like to hire one of the student photographers trained and equipped by the Office of Public Affairs, please call (413)-542-2320 for a list of active photographers. Please note that the students are hired as freelancers and set their own fees.
