With the launch of the new UC San Diego Media Gallery, members of the campus community as well as news media can download high-resolution university images, videos, audio clips and other content. Files from this growing repository can be used royalty free at no cost in print, web and video projects such as websites, newsletters, press releases, social media and more.
The searchable galleries provide information for each entry on date taken, image size and credit. Users can browse through categories of Academics and Research, Athletics, Campus Life, Community and Service, Places and Landmarks or Teleconference Backgrounds to find the perfect photo or video to fit their needs. Access to public galleries is available to everyone, with or without a UC San Diego email address.
Erik Jepsen ‘10, the award-winning photographer behind most of the photos available in the Media Gallery, is a staff photographer with University Communications. From taking portraits of campus leaders and visiting dignitaries such as the Dalai Lama and President Clinton to shooting on-campus events, he can be found at the center of the action, capturing that pivotal moment of excitement, celebration and historic achievement. In addition to appearing in UC San Diego related materials, Jepsen’s photographs have also been featured in National Geographic Magazine and The Washington Post, among other publications.
In the coming months, the gallery will be regularly updated with new images from the past and present. When using photographs from the Media Gallery for editorial purposes, users are asked to credit the appropriate photographer. Use by campus personnel for marketing purposes does not require credit. Media representatives can utilize this excellent resource to download materials at no cost. Visit the UC San Diego Media Gallery. View guidelines on using photos from the gallery.
