Any JMU student, faculty, or staff member can book a reservation for professional headshots. One of our photographers will work with you for up to 15-minutes to get a set of photos you like, so come with ideas and dress professionally! If the weather is nice, we often go outside to take photos in front of the bluestone and Madison Hall. Photos will be sent to you within 48 hours. 

Please select "Book a Reservation" through our scheduler: 

Note: Clients who are more than 10 minutes late to their consultation will be marked as a "No Show" and their reservation will be canceled.
