Photography and images

Using macro photography within your teaching materials

What do I use it for?

Using photographs and images in teaching can help students engage with the information being delivered and can be a key illustrative device.
Examples include:

  • Enriching presentations with interesting imagery
  • Illustrating processes or techniques
  • Delivering messages in a more visual way than solely text based materials


How can I commission new photography?

The media team can create bespoke photography to include in your online course materials, lectures or academic publications.  Images from portraiture to macro photography can be captured on location or in our studio and can really enhance the learning experience of your students.


Where can I find existing images?

You can access a wide selection of copyright cleared images from image libraries. We also have a small number of images on our Flickr site which are cleared to use for educational purposes.
