Photography & Videography

Photography and video are two essential ways to capture the essence of the Pamplin College Brand. Through the use of imagery, students, faculty and staff, and outsiders can access a resource that the mind associates with Pamplins’ brand, therefore, strengthening the culture between Pamplin and Virginia Tech.


Action shots conveying student life, Professor research, and student/ Professor interaction is preferred. When it is not possible to document live action, posed portraits of professors and students in environmental settings can communicate their work, interests, and personalities. Iconic locations for Pamplin are staples and should be taken in dynamic and dramatic lighting. Make sure that still building shots are second to live action shots.
