Welcome to the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences (CAHNRS) and WSU Extension Photo Archives.

This collection of digital images is offered as a free service in order to provide the public with a wide range of current and historic images relating primarily to agriculture in Washington state and Washington State University’s contributions to agriculture through research, extension and teaching.

All photographers taking photographs intended for use in any University publication of a marketing or a public relations nature, such as newsletters, brochures, viewbooks, promotional items, or other such material, must obtain a signed release form (pdf) from any student, faculty member, staff person, or member of the public who is visibly recognizable in the photograph. Crowd scenes taken in a public location where no single person is the dominant feature are exempt.
Releases also must be obtained for photographs used on the Web. These rules are not in effect when photographs are taken of news events, but photographs taken for news purposes require a release for reuse in marketing materials.
