Professional headshots are an invaluable resource throughout the world of higher education, particularly for students with internship and job applications approaching. 

Thanks to the Career Development Center, NC State students, faculty and staff can now take professional photos free of charge. The center is offering an Iris professional photo booth, which is self service and includes high-quality lighting, a touch screen and camera equipment. Funding for this innovative resource was made possible through an NC State University Foundation, Inc. grant.

The booth, found on the second floor of the Career Development Center in Pullen Hall (2100 Dan Allen Drive), is wheelchair accessible and, in addition to being available to current NC State students, faculty and staff, alumni are also welcome. 

“We are very excited to invite faculty and staff to utilize the professional photo booth,” said Kelly Laraway, the Career Development Center’s director of employer relations. “It gives everyone the chance to take professional-quality photos and have them instantly delivered via email. These photos are great for use on websites, Moodle and LinkedIn. This professional photo booth allows users to instantly see their photos, retake them and edit them. It is an amazing resource!”

Career Development Center staff are available to help with the booth via drop-in on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2-4 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12-2 p.m. and Fridays from 1-4 p.m. Students and employees can check in at the Career Development Center’s front desk in Pullen Hall. There is currently no limit to how many times NC State students and staff can use the photo booth. 

Students and staff should email for additional questions or assistance, or to arrange use of the photo booth on a different day and time. For helpful tips on preparing for a professional photo, visit the Iris booth’s website
