Changes to Headshots with Photo Services
Photo Services is changing how faculty and staff at St. Thomas schedule headshots. In the past, faculty and staff who had not had a headshot taken in the past three years could schedule an ad-hoc session in our Loras Hall studio. Due to staffing changes in Photo Services, faculty and staff will now need to book a time in the available slots shown on our headshot booking form. There will be at least two sessions available each month on an alternating MWF and TR schedule and we will occassionally add off-hours sessions for those employees who work early morning or evening shifts.
The booking form is only for faculty and staff. Requests for headshots of students such as summer orientation leaders, athletics teams, and academic classes will be handled on a case by case basis in accordance with our assignment policy.
We realize this change may cause some inconvenience, but we believe such a system will make best use of universitiy photo resources. We will evaluate this system in the coming months and make changes to the time slots as we receive feedback from faculty and staff.
