Main Logo for Providence College


Photography is central to the Providence College brand and is intended to illustrate the richness and diversity of the PC experience. PC imagery has a distinctive, sun-kissed, almost nostalgic look, intended to evoke the warmth, tradition, and history of Rhode Island.

Photo mashups and pairings/juxtapositions are used to illustrate balance — or finding harmony in seemingly dissimilar perspectives.

While these effects are emblematic of the brand’s visual expression, there are many cases that call for straight photography with a candid, unstaged look.

The Division of Marketing and Communications has a wealth of photographic resources for you to use. In addition, we can help facilitate connections with freelance photographers. To access our photography, or for advice on creating any photographic effects, please contact us at or 401.865.1242.
