What We Do


Our photography team's work helps to tell the UC Merced story and build our brand through photographs that showcase our events, our campus and its people, their achievements and the effects on our community, our state, and the world. We also provide access to our online photo archive to campus community members (use your UCMNetID for access) for use in their work of promoting UC Merced. Please use our photo request form below to request a photo shoot or contact to find out more about how we can help.
