The Office of Strategic Communications and Marketing creates high-quality imagery that tells the story of Kennesaw State to a wide audience. Our photography visually depicts campus communications, leaps from the pages of KSU Magazine, and refreshes the websites and social media galleries clicked by thousands.

Faculty/Staff Headshots

The KSU photography studio is located in the Town Point Building, Suite 1600. This larger space supports social distancing and a touch-free experience. Part of these precautions are to ensure the highest level of safety; subjects will be asked to remove their masks while photographs are being captured.

Please note that the University has rebranded the look of our headshots and is now using a modern gray background. The legacy gold background has been retired. Faculty and staff are encouraged to schedule a session for an updated headshot.
