UB Portrait Studio

Portrait studio

Faculty and staff in need of a professional portrait may book appointments directly with our contract photographer, Yves-Richard Blanc. Portrait sessions may take place at the portrait studio in Abbott Hall on the South Campus or at an alternative location mutually agreed upon by the photographer and the client.

After the session, you will receive an edited web gallery from which to select a final image.

  • Final photos will be delivered electronically via UB Box or email.
  • Photography fees will be invoiced to you or your department at a rate of $100 per portrait session.
  • A unit may arrange to have multiple portrait sessions on site at a rate of $150 per hour.
  • If your department is using state funds for payment, please request a purchase order through the eReq system. If using RF or UBF funds, request a purchase order through ShopBlue. The contract number is T-000920 and the supplier is listed as “Blanc Global Dynamism.” A purchase order must be in place prior to taking portraits. After the final images are delivered, you will receive an invoice that should be directed to accounts payable for payment. Please reference the purchase order number previously created for your job.
