Montclair State University student in knee-deep waters



Our Aspirational photography style captures our promise to deliver an education that lifts people up. Foregrounded in a variety of vivid, inspiring settings, subjects are shown looking up – or are shot from angles that suggest this – in a visual representation of aspiration, contemplation, potential and achievement.

Photography has the power to connect with people in a way that words often can’t. While our logo, colors and typography make us recognizable at a surface level, it’s images like these that bring our community and our campus to life, and add a deep sense of humanity and storytelling to our materials. Subjects should always feel natural, unposed, and in a storytelling setting, letting the audience experience a moment in time.
