UC Santa Barbara Photo Services is now part of the Office of Public Affairs & Communications. 

We provide professional photography for the UCSB campus and affiliated organizations. We offer a variety of services from portraits and professional headshots to architectural, scientific, and event photography. We also offer museum level 2D/3D art-reproduction and copy photography. In addition to photography, Photo Services offers large format printing of research posters and other imagery.
