Lund University has agreements with three photographers. Here you can find information on how to use the agreements and contact details for each photographer.

The photographers are divided into three categories, based on the nature of the photographic assignments. Thus you choose the photographer on the basis of the kind of images you want to order. All photographs are purchased with full rights, so-called press images.

The cost of hiring a photographer is divided into hourly rate and price per photograph. This makes it easier to calculate the cost of the entire assignment. Feel free to ask the photographer how many hours they need to deliver a good result. You can also tell the photographer how many hours they may spend on the assignment to ensure that your budget is sufficient for the number of images you need.

Hourly rates apply for possible planning meetings, photography, the photographer’s own selection and rough editing of the pictures, that is, everything the photographer needs to do before they are able to give you images to choose from. Once you have decided which images you want to purchase, the photographer will edit them and charge you per image. Trips and travel time to Lund, Malmö, Helsingborg and Ljungbyhed are included in the hourly rate and should therefore not be charged. Trips and travel time to other places, however, may be charged. The photographer has to consult you about planning the trip.

The University procures photography services and signs agreements with three photographers. The tenders are evaluated and contracts are signed with the three photographers who provide the highest quality combined with the lowest price. The prices that the photographers submit in their tenders apply in the contracts. Therefore, the prices of the different photographers vary. 

What to remember when ordering and using images

Each individual image affects how Lund University is perceived by wider society. Try to choose images which communicate rather than recording, and remember to check the Lund University image bank first.

When ordering images from a photographer, remember the following:

  • Clarify the aim and purpose of the assignment. The clearer you can be in your order, the greater the chance of getting photos which meet your needs and wishes! Are there texts, for example? Background information from a text/article can generate good ideas before a photography session.
  • What do you want the images to show and what feeling are they to communicate?
  • What will you be using the images for? For example, will they feature in a small advertisement or be blown up for use at a fair stand? Will they be used in print or only be used digitally? Should they be usable in a certain format? Perhaps the same image should be usable in both square and panoramic format.
  • Tell the photographer if one of the procured communications agencies is involved so that the photographer and the agency can discuss ideas. That makes it easier for the photographer to take the photos that the agency has in mind.
  • Order images in both landscape and portrait format.
  • When you order the pictures, be sure to tell the photographer when you need them.
  • If you hire a photographer to take pictures of a researcher or some one else who appears in the media from time to time, ask the photographer to take regular portrait images as well.

You are encouraged to add the images you have produced to the Image and Media Bank, so that everyone can have an overview of, and access to, the images that are available. Please contact your nearest Communications Officer if you want to upload your images in the Image and media bank.

Remember that in certain contexts you need the consent of the people featured in the images.
