Curated Photos

We curate a large, diverse selection of images available to download from the Texas State digital asset manager called Canto.

Together, we can tell the story of TXST

University Marketing is always in search of powerful photos showcasing Bobcats engaged in active learning, hands-on experiences, participating in non-traditional learning activities or just enjoying life at TXST.

Let us know when you’re holding an event so we can capture these moments. Together, we can tell the story of TXST.


Custom and Event Photography

Have an event, experience, or group session you'd like us to attend? Let us know! Keep in mind, we'll need at least two weeks' notice, and we are unable to attend all events.


Professional Portraits

Need portraits of your employees? We hold portrait sessions during the first week of each month at our J.C. Kellam studio. Portraits are for faculty and staff only.
