Working With Us

Our team wants to collaborate with you on your next marketing project!

Getting in touch with us as early as possible helps us identify the right strategy, messaging, and scope of the project. We typically have a large volume of projects all at different stages so talking with us sooner vs. later helps us integrate the project into our workflow so we can meet your deadline.

Let’s take that photo!

All of our campus partners help us tell Ole stories authentically. We believe that authentic photography is a key component of all of our marketing materials. We cherish the opportunity to help you capture events, projects, classroom shots, and other academic and non-academic activities that are part of the St. Olaf experience.

We have a team of photographers (students, staff, and contractors) who help us cover as many requests as we can.
