Photo Services FAQ

A successful photography project begins with the basics.

Get a Photo Model Release or HIPAA Authorization

Use the university model release forms to obtain written permission to photograph or videotape subjects. HIPAA Authorization forms are required when working with patients who disclose health information in any form. All subjects must complete and sign one of these forms for each photo, taping, or interview session.

Filming, Photography, and Videography Guidelines for Outside Vendors

Outside production companies, photographers, filmmakers, and others who want to use Rutgers’ buildings and property in print, on film, or on videotape should contact the appropriate campus coordinating office to start the process of filming on location at Rutgers.
