To provide consistent, professional-quality headshots to all UMBC faculty and staff, Research Graphics, a CNMS Core Facility, has established portraits.umbc.edu.

The office has a photography studio and a photographer with many years of experience providing portraits to the College of Natural and Mathematical Sciences and many other departments and programs at UMBC.

 •  IT’S FREE, EASY and RARELY TAKES MORE THAN 10 MINUTES

We encourage all faculty and staff to participate in order to provide consistent images for department, program, and office web sites. Photos can also be used for university communications needs, such as sending to media who feature faculty and staff experts.

In addition, you may choose to use them to:

– accompany a manuscript or journal publication

– promote a speaking engagement or performance 

– post on a personal web page promoting your research or professional interests

 

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

1. Schedule an appointment by emailing Tim Ford at tford1@umbc.edu. 

2. Attend the photo session. We recommend that you avoid clothing that’s visually “busy,” but wear something in which you feel comfortable and confident!

2. After the session, Tim will provide you with an email link to your photos in Google Drive.  Choose the photo(s) you like, which you may download for your own use. They will then be archived by UMBC staff (e.g., your department for web sites, UMBC communications staff).

 

SCHEDULING

For now, we are looking at these suggested times to set up appointments, but if none of these work for you, we’ll do our best to find a more convenient time:

Tuesdays:  NOON to 1 PM,   4:00 to 5:00 pm

Thursdays:  NOON to 1 PM,   4:00 to 5:30 pm

Fridays: 4:00 to 5:30 pm

 

SESSIONS TAKE PLACE IN ROOM 102, BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES

 

Please note: the few days before large UMBC undergraduate symposium events such as URCAD, SURF and CNMS URS, we’ll be unable to schedule appointments. 

 

The university reserves the right to use the photographs in directories, alongside news items, and for purposes promoting the mission of UMBC
