Photo Style

The University of South Carolina is the stage for many beautiful moments.

Our visual story is captured in moments of real life. Even as we photograph the unique aspects of our campus, people and activities, our goal is to capture those moments of life as they unfold.

Best Practice

Find a Better View

Avoid straight documentary-style shots to create dynamic images.

Sometimes we capture what we need in a photo shoot. If you’re scheduling a photo shoot, plan ahead. Before the shoot, scout the location and take note of the light. Natural light works best. Plan your composition to take advantage of the light and show the action.
