Michigan Photography is dedicated to capturing the essence of U-M through the people, the events and the spirit that make Michigan great. Our team provides professional photography services to the U-M community, the media and the general public. Located in the heart of Central Campus, Michigan Photography knows the university inside and out. Every day, our team of photographers records U-M’s history through thoughtful, creative and high-quality photographic images.


In 2015, Senior Photographer Eric Bronson won the University Photographers’ Association of America’s highest award, Photographer of the Year. It was the fifth time a Michigan photographer has won the award from UPAA — an international organization of college and university photographers that represents the very best in higher-education photography.

Our photographers are regularly recognized for their work.
