What we do for you:

What you can do for us:
You will be seen by appointment ONLY. Same day photos or walk-ins are NOT authorized.
To make an appointment online through the Visual Information Ordering Site (VIOS):
VIOS appointments are sometimes booked up to 6 weeks in advance. Schedule your appointment as early as possible.
DA photos are processed and uploaded on the same day they are taken. View how to accept or reject your DA Photo. You MUST reject the photograph within 3 days. On the 4th day, it is automatically accepted.
We are located in the Garrison Headquarters (first floor) on Grant Avenue, in between Reynolds and Sedgwick Avenues. Enter the double door in the back (East side) and it is the first office on your left.
Parking is available (very limited) in the back of the building, or near the Post Theater.
Two changing rooms are available in the photo studio.
Prior to your scheduled appointment:
- Do not arrive more then 15 minutes early.
- Preparing your uniform is YOUR responsibility (AR 640-30). View the U.S. Army Service Uniform website. - Have someone in your chain of command inspect your uniform. You may bring someone with you to check your uniform before your photo is taken.
- Re-shoots will be done only as prescribed by AR 640-30 para 5(p). "Photographers will take re-shoots only when there is an error caused by the photographer or the equipment. Re-shoots may be completed upon receipt of a digitally signed e-mail or written request signed by the company commander or equivalent in the soldier's chain of command."
