Auburn Athletics provides their own team of photographers to cover sporting events. However, our photographers attend some athletic events to shoot the atmosphere for general university use.
Current photo shoots are uploaded to AU Image Library and are available to view and access for 3-5 years. Due to storage limits, images are removed and archived for long-term storage on external drives. Communicators are encouraged to download and save images from photo shoots to avoid retrieval fees. Historical images are available indefinitely in AU Image Library.
Student photographers are available on a first come, first serve basis for events.
Prints can be ordered online through the AU Image Library.
Campus offices should purchase prints directly through Photographic Services to receive department rates and avoid sales tax charges.
Images in the public collection are viewable by anyone. The campus communicators collection is accessible by communicators only as it is password protected. Campus communicators must login to download images.
No. The AU Image Library operates through a third-party site, PhotoShelter. Accounts must be created by using your university email address and a password of your choice.
