Through this portraits page, Creative Services provides consistent, professional-quality headshots for UMBC faculty and staff.

These headshots are free of charge and typically require no more than 5-10 minutes. Portraits can be used for university communications, marketing/recruitment materials, and media requests with proper credit: Photo by Marlayna Demond ’11 for UMBC. Please note at this time we are not offering this service to students.

To reserve a portrait session: Please email Marlayna Demond at for scheduling information and to request a time slot.

  • When you attend the portrait session, we recommend you avoid clothing that’s visually “busy,” but wear something in which you feel comfortable and confident!
  • After the session, Marlayna will provide you with a link to your photos.  Choose the photo(s) you prefer and download for your use. They will also be archived by Creative Services. The university reserves the right to use the photographs in directories, UMBC News stories, and for purposes promoting the mission of UMBC.
