As part of the UCSF community, we understand the unique atmosphere of the University.

We are familiar with UCSF accessibility requirements, and copyright remains property of the University, not an outside studio.

Studio Portraits

• Professional lighting and various backdrops
• Photo suite in Mission Center Building for formal portraits or professional product photography
• Can bring the studio to you and work around your schedule

We offer formal portraits in our Mission Center studio.  A portrait session includes 2 backdrops, a change of clothes if desired, and three images from your proof retouched and returned as high res files.  We can also bring the studio to you.

This is perfect for when you have a number of employees needing quick portraits. We set up the lights and one backdrop, and shoot approximately one portrait every 5-10 minutes at an hourly rate. These portraits are returned without a proof as 400x600 pixel web sized files, or as proofs for high res retouched files.

Environmental or Natural Light Portraits

Sometimes a portrait should include your environment, like office or workplace, or you may prefer an outdoor setting. We are happy to meet you at your location to shoot.
