The UH Hilo Marketing & Alumni Office employs student photographers on a yearly basis (dependent upon available funding); our current student photographers are Kelsey Ito and Jaysen Niedermeyer. Their ability to photograph various UH Hilo events on and off-campus revolves around their personal and class schedules, which may include evening and weekend hours if available. Off-campus events must be within a 10-mile radius of the University. Please be sensitive to these determining factors when submitting your requests online.
Appropriate photography requests include those for UH Hilo-affiliated organizations and events. We do not supply services for personal matters or for institutions who do not have a relationship with the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo. Due to limited funding, not all requests will be approved; the UH Hilo Marketing & Alumni Office reserves the right to determine the priority of requests that are received. Please submit requests at least 3 weeks in advance. Limit your request to one event only; if you have multiple events, you must submit separate online forms.
After your event is submitted, you will receive an e-mail notifying whether your request was approved or not. If your request has been authorized, one of our student photographers will be assigned to your event. Due to budget and time management needs, we reserve the right to limit the amount of time allocated for our photographer to be on site.
You will receive photos via an e-mailed link to our Google Drive. It is your responsibility to download the photos within a timely manner; photos on the Drive are regularly deleted to make space for new ones. Photo credit should be provided to the UH Hilo Marketing & Alumni Office, as well as the photographer's name. Any unauthorized or misuse of photographic materials will constitute grounds for refusal to provide future services. All above terms and conditions are subject to change without notification.
If you have any questions, please contact the UH Hilo Marketing & Alumni Office at (808) 974-7501/7643.
