The photographic section provides support for MCINCR-MCB Quantico and designated tenant organizations in a technically proficient manner. We provide administrative photography to include: OMPF photos, official command board photos, official passports, ISOPrep photos, citizenship and naturalization photos, as well as 360 degree photos in PT gear. We also provide operational coverage, based on order of precedence and advance notification, to include: base exercises, community outreach events, change of command/ relief and appointment ceremonies, retirement ceremonies for the rank of E9/CWO5/06 and higher, and official passport photos for deploying units. Additional official requests will be considered based upon photographer availability.

COMSTRAT Marines submitting photos using ORMA must also convert those photos from JPEGs to Microsoft print to PDF files before creating the requests to submit the photos as ORMA only accepts PDF's.

“HQMC, Manpower and Performance Branch understands that the requirement to still take the photo annually is not going away, however MARADMIN 491/20 clearly states that due to US Law the photos are not authorized to be viewed and or used in any capacity related to Promotion Boards, or selections to assignments, training, education and command.  Therefore during the in brief for all boards it is once again clearly stated to all members that they will not see nor have access to anything related to the photo during the board process.  We want to be very clear to all that this requirement to not use the photo has been and will continue to be enforced as required by law.”  This is the official response from HQMC Manpower and Performance Branch regarding the photo.
