Your eyes see photos first. Compelling images and graphics grab the reader’s attention and say, “there’s something different, exciting, and impactful happening here at BU.”
So what characterizes a BU-brand photo? It should be:
- Unstaged (except portraits)
- Engaging (portraits on simple backgrounds can do that)
- Dynamic (showing movement)
- Bold (make it big to make a statement)
Free BU Stock Photography
If you can’t provide your own photography, we can help. Free BU stock photography is available to Boston University faculty and staff. To access, you’ll need a valid faculty or staff BU login (students and third parties must request photos from a faculty or staff sponsor).
Faculty and staff can also browse and search the entire digital library of for-purchase photography (available in high- and low-resolution options).
Facebook Timeline Photos
We’ve also developed a collection of free, pre-formatted Facebook Timeline photos.
If you’re still on the hunt for just the right imagery, contact BU Photography about other options, including scheduling a photo shoot for your website or publication.
