Photo Style

When it comes to capturing the essence of Texas A&M — its people, its symbols, its buildings — photos speak volumes. Use the highest quality imagery, involving a professional photographer whenever possible. Here are a few resources and guidelines for making the most of your photos.

Image Repository and Archive

The Campus Image Repository is a central resource of managed images that incorporate branding guidelines and are available to campus designers and communicators for university publications, websites and presentations.

To see our full archive of photos, please contact Brian Wright at brian-j-wright@tamu.edu or (979) 845-4665 to schedule an appointment.

Photo Examples

Following are examples of photos that present the university in a professional, positive light:

Student photographs should reflect a modern attitude conveying the depth of relationships cultivated on campus.

Photographs of professors should suggest authority in their fields. Try to include interesting props or structures in a professor's portrait.

Photos of individuals should look spontaneous and, if possible, display an attractive area of the university.

Group photos of professors and students in relaxed poses and interesting environments can communicate the personalities and attitudes of the individuals.

Whenever possible, use dramatic lighting and depth in photographs of buildings to emphasize the classical beauty of the architecture.
