Official Photos (Arrive on time and in uniform!)
The CONG Official Photo Studio (720-250-1133) provides Soldiers with Official Department of the Army (DA) photographs, uploads and tracks the status of official photos on the Department of the Army Photo Management Information System (DAPMIS), provides photographs for special packets and Soldier actions (Officer Candidate School, AGR jobs, Warrant Officer Application, Recruiting, and Soldier/NCO of the Month/Qtr. Boards, etc.,), provides Command Photos (head and shoulders), ISOPREP and provides Passport Photos ONLY if they are for official DoD/government trips.
The CONG JFHQ Official Photo Studio has chosen Wednesday as the preferred day for all photos. However, other time-slots on other days can be scheduled on a very limited, as-needed basis for schedule emergencies only. NOTE: Only National Guard, Active Duty and Reserve Commissioned Officers, Warrant Officers and NCO’s E-6 and above are authorized to have an Official Photo loaded into DAPMIS.
The DA Photo begins with the Soldier taking the time to ensure their uniform is properly fitted and reflects only the awards and citations annotated on their ERB/ORB. Our photographers and staff can only assist you by inspecting your uniform and pointing out obvious flaws (i.e. wrinkles, improper fit, damage). It is YOUR responsibility to ensure awards, decorations, unit crests and badges are worn correctly and match your ERB/ORB.
Photographers, Soldiers, or anyone providing assistance to the Soldier while taking the official photograph MAY NOT stuff, clip, or otherwise change or alter the appearance of the uniform to make it fit properly. Pockets, lapels and the front of the jacket are the only places that may be taped. Photographers will not alter the photograph, to include adding rank, ribbons, stars, or erasing waistlines or wrinkles by using photo imaging software.
DO NOT WEAR: INFANTRY CORDS, BLUE DISKS, FLASHES, LEADERSHIP TABS, OR FRENCH FOURRAGÈRE.
DO NOT WEAR: STATE AWARDS FOR DA PHOTOS (ONLY FEDERAL AWARDS, PLEASE).
FOR TAG UNIT CITATION:
- IF AWARDED INDIVIDUALLY, WEAR IT ON THE LEFT SIDE WITH YOUR RIBBON RACK.
- IF AWARDED AS A UNIT, WEAR IT ABOVE THE NAME TAG (RIGHT SIDE) AND IT MUST BE WORN WITHOUT A GOLD FRAME.
