SPDC to host outdoor portrait sessions Nov. 17 & 20

Elon students in need of professional photos can get portraits taken outside by the Student Professional Development Center on Nov. 17 and 20.

Due to ongoing efforts to keep the campus community safe this fall, the Student Professional Development Center cannot offer studio portraiture indoors. But as the fall brings cooler weather, outdoor portraits are an excellent option for those hoping to be photographed.

For students who do not have a professional portrait to use on LinkedIn, the SPDC will be hosting two outdoor portraiture sessions on Nov. 17 from 8:30-11 a.m. and Nov. 20 from 2-5 p.m. on the front patio of Moseley (the patio faces Haggard Ave.) Participants will be photographed on a first-come, first-serve basis; no appointments are allowed. These sessions are weather-dependent and may be canceled if it’s windy or rainy.

Attendees must observe all of the standard precautions — physical distancing and wearing face coverings — as they wait to be photographed. Once their turn to be photographed, each participant can remove their face covering briefly for the photo. The photographer will remain masked throughout the sessions.

Additional sessions may be added if it’s safe to do so.
