Photographic work

A downloadable photo gallery of University photographs, co-ordinated by colleagues in Corporate Communications, is available. If you are unable to find what you are looking for, please email: 

Otherwise, we can source photographs for you that have either been used in our University publications, graduation photographs, or we can obtain images for you (a cost is involved) from iStock. Please email us at:

Special collections

We maintain close links with Special Collections in the University. Their Photographic Library has an extensive photographic archive of University pictures.  

Photographic production processes


We offer a high end scanning service for documents, photographs and artwork as well as photographic film of all formats, including glass plate negatives and prints up to 16 x 12 inches (40.5 x 30.5cm) in black and white or colour.

We have to capacity to scan items such as documents, photographs and artwork, up to A3 size, however larger items could be accommodated - please contact us for more information.

Image modification

Our photographic technicians can also tackle any discipline which has an imaging application. They work with virtually anything that can be scanned up to 16 × 12 inches (40.5 × 30.5cm).

We have expertise in image modification of any kind of imaging application but these are primarily historic photographic prints. The photographs are scanned at high resolution and then detailed and skilled digital repair is carried out on the damaged photographs.

Original version

Repaired version

The photos are then saved as digital images but many of our customers request our high-end photographic prints on specialist media e.g. fine art paper, textured materials, for example canvas and on premium digital papers. The prints can be at any size up to A0 posters. 

This work is carried out for a number of academic Schools and Units, in particular Art History and the University Library but any enquiry is welcome.

The District Museums Service are also important clients.

Personal enquiries are always welcome both within and outside the University.
