The Communications Office currently has one professional photographer, Soran Naqishbandy. He provides a variety of photography services to the campus community. His photography is used as a key component of marketing designs for the University.

Please keep in mind that the growing needs of the campus and the limited availability of our photographer means that not all requests can be honored.

The Communications Office reserves the option to cover photography opportunities at its discretion, as its schedule allows and to the extent it deems appropriate. Images from photo opportunities may or may not be used on the main AUIS webpage or uploaded to the official AUIS social media channels at the discretion of the Communications Office.
