Dave Weaver
University Communications and Marketing Photographer


We visually capture the Creighton experience and the value of a Jesuit education to support marketing and advertising for the University's print and web materials. Our photography services primarily focus on projects that support student recruitment and raise the profile of the University.

To request a photo shoot for use in University marketing and communications materials, please complete a photography request.

We do our best to accommodate all requests, but photo shoots that occur outside of work hours (8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.) may be outsourced to a third party with possible costs attributed. See Additional Photographer Options below.



Faculty and staff only are welcome to have a headshot taken at our studio in the Wareham building. No appointments necessary. We accept walk-ins Monday through Friday during business hours (8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.). The headshots have a University-standard backdrop and will be available for your use within two weeks.
