The Office of Public Relations requests that written consent in the form of a photo release be obtained when photographs are classrooms, presentations, special events, or general interest groupings will be used for print or Web publications. Please bring copies of the photo release to the Public Relations Office at the time of photo submission.
Although photos taken in public realm do not require a photo release form, USNH General Counsel encourages us to demonstrate respect for the privacy of our students, staff, contractors and visitors by informing them when we will be photographing events and that we will our best to seek their consent to publish photos that contain personally identifiable subjects. Release forms are the best defense against claims for invasion of privacy, even where a photograph is taken in a public area.
Places constituted as a private realm are private homes and resident rooms in dormitories operated by postsecondary educational institutions and do legally require a photo release to be signed by the owner of the residence and all pictured.
