Studio Scheduling


The Public Affairs Office holds to a set schedule for all official photos, and does not deviate from that schedule without the approval of the Base Visual Information Manager, Command Information OIC, PA Superintendent or PA Chief.

Walk-in service for official studio photography is not permitted for any rank or circumstance.

Appointments must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. Same day appointments are not permitted unless reviewed and approved by the Base Visual Information Manager, Command Information OIC, PA Superintendent or PA Chief.

All personnel must come prepared at the time of their appointment. If a member is missing any part of the uniform, such as a name tag or tie, the member will need to reschedule. PA also reserves the right to turn away personnel whose uniforms do not meet standards (i.e., soiled, too small, too baggy, or wrinkled). Such occurrences will be referred to the member’s First Sergeant.

Scheduling for Official Studio Portraits is to be accomplished on-line at the link below. When scheduling an appointment, you must also download and fill out the AF Form 833 – Studio Scheduling form and email it to:, appointments scheduled without the accompanying AF Form 833 being received will be cancelled.

Your appointment is officially scheduled upon setting an appointment in our online system, you have sent your completed AF Form 833 to the org box stated above, and you've received a confirmation email from that org box. A PA representative routinely reviews all appointments to ensure they qualify under previously stated guidelines. If an appointment does not meet the requirements, we will be in contact to verify details and amend the appointment as necessary. 

Our Studio is located at 581 Waldron Street, Building 243, Bay F1, the 60th Communications Squadron building.
