We all realize how impossible it is to get the ENTIRE department together at the same time for a department photo.
My dept photos are done differently....
I come to your station for an entire weekend - Saturday & Sunday, 7 hours each day! If a third day is needed due to shift schedules, I can accommodate that as well!
No appointments necessary for pictures to be taken! The members of the department can show up at their own discretion whenever their weekend schedule allows!
It takes longer to get geared up (or dressed in Class A/B uniforms) than to get the picture taken! We like to get everyone in & out as quickly as possible so they can go on with their day.
