We visually capture the Creighton experience and the value of a Jesuit education to support marketing and advertising for the University's print and web materials. Our photography services primarily focus on projects that support student recruitment and raise the profile of the University.

To request a photo shoot for use in University marketing and communications materials, please complete a photography request.

We do our best to accommodate all requests, but photo shoots that occur outside of work hours (8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.) may be outsourced to a third party with possible costs attributed. See Additional Photographer Options below.

Request Forms

Use the Project Request Form for project, story, event, video, or photography requests. Use the Web Request Form to submit updates to your external web pages. Use the Faculty Photos & Tagging Request to send in photo submissions or request tagging for faculty profiles.

Frequently asked questions:

Do I need to fill out a Project Request for a headshot?
You no longer need to fill out a photo request form for a headshot, and no appointment is needed! Arrive anytime between 9 a.m.–1 p.m. on the first Tuesday of every month, or noon–4 p.m. on the third Wednesday of every month. 

Do you charge a fee for headshots?
There is currently no fee for headshots at the Omaha campus. 

Where do I go to have my headshot taken?
Our headshot studio is located in the Murphy Building - Suite C at 701 N 20th Street (#41 on Creighton Map). The entrance is on the south side of the building. It is next door to the the Ruth. Parking is available on the north side of the Murphy building.

When will I have access to my headshot? 
Headshots will be available approximately two weeks after they are taken. You will receive an email notification when your photo is posted in Photoshelter, Creighton’s photo management system. To access your photo, log into Photoshelter using your Creighton’s Single Sign On (SSO), and either click the link emailed or search for your name in the online search tool. Feel free to download your headshot using the arrow in the bottom right of the web page. 

What should I wear?

  • An outfit that makes you comfortable and confident. 
  • Layers! Layers add depth and texture to a photo. 
  • Avoid bold stripes, plaids, checks, dots, and busy prints. 
  • Avoid light flesh tones such as beige, tan and peach. 
  • Wearing all black is not recommended as it will photograph flat. 

Please note: the background color is a vibrant light blue – see photo example above.

Can I have my headshot taken more than once?
Headshots should not be taken more than once a year; however, most employees only have them taken once during their Creighton employment. Featuring faculty members on our external website or staff members who are presenting at a conference are the primary reasons headshots are offered.

Headshots - Phoenix

Phoenix headshots will be scheduled throughout the academic year through the UCOM team in Phoenix.
