What’s the difference between BruinLife Photo Studio and Campus Photo Studio?

Yes, there are 2 photo studios on campus. However, we are not affiliated with each other.

BruinLife Photo Studio is by students, for students! We are directly affiliated with UCLA Student Media, the publishers of the UCLA Bruin Life yearbook.

As a non-profit photo studio our revenue goes to fund the several enriching journalism programs that UCLA Student Media has to offer.

Both studios use same gowns and backgrounds so you can rest assure that your photos will come out to your liking.

Because BruinLife Photo Studio works directly with the yearbook, we are able to offer more discounted prices on our photo packages.

UCLA Students: If I take my picture with UCLA BruinLife Photo Studio, will my picture go in the yearbook?

If you are a UCLA student, you must take your photo before the deadline established by the yearbook staff to be included by the yearbook. Please note that ONLY BruinLife Photo Studio has a later deadline than Campus Photo Studio.

After receiving your proofs, you will have 1 week to select a pose you want included in the book. The yearbook staff reserves the right to select a pose or exclude a portrait for individuals who fail to choose a pose for the book.

Do you provide the latin/college honor cord?
